On a brighter note a colony just 8 km away are unaffected and seem to be thriving which begs the question why doesn't this colony move , I guess they either can't or won't because that is their home.
Nesting and migration are powerful instincts.
The really, really stubborn ones that survive long enough will probably trickle over to the other colony.
Co-author Chris Fogwill, of the UNSW Climate Change Research Centre, said there was some good news for the colony. "Over the last year the fast ice associated with B09B has begun to break up in Commonwealth Bay," he said.

He says within 20 years which I guess means anytime between now and 20 years time , I don't know how they came to that figure.
A interesting comparative study between the two bombs on Japan during WW2 and the tsunami from the earth quake could give some interesting results . Put it into people $$$ and radiation ....they both share some of the same effects . short and long term .
Humanities ever-present potential of unleashing radioactive fallout kinda dwarfs all other natural disasters imo.
