National Geographic : Without the ice shelves pushing back the ice, the global sea level would increase rapidly. What do you think of this new finding about the Ross Ice Shelf in Antarctica?

New Message : looked like a Yeti's colonoscopy, really.

TheFlyingOtis : What does it mean exactly that dice is crystallizing instead of melting and why did they expect it to be melting?

MAD Lab : I have Thalasophobia.. That last black hole of eternity really freaked me out

Christopher Gaul : It would have been nice to include even a brief summary of WHY this was surprising to the scientists, to find freezing instead of melting ice and why it matters and what impact it has on other things.

Oh Boy! : I saw an ad of an oil company. Now you do the math!

bolastube : Water is freezing in antarctica? No way!

Lord Voldemort : Flat earth confirmed!

Daniel A : Global warming is a myth xd

MundoPelis xYz : So, global warming is fake?

stiimuli : Had a small panic attack imagining falling down that hole head first O_O

Branden Criner : What song is this? Stuffs amazing.

Douglas Goldstein : Raise the ocean by ten feet you say? So the ice floating in my drink, once it melts, will cause my cup to overflow...? Rrrriiiiiight. :-/

Pitch Black : This got me high.

Marqan : Wasn't it always obvious that at certain places the icesheets regrow? The problem was always that it's melting faster than it re-freezes. At least as far as I know..

Akarsh chaturvedi : imagine accidentally falling into that!!!

StarSeed : Global Warming was a Globalist Ponzi Scheme.

oky : i thought it's an a colonoscopy procedure

AKA Tree : Global Warming is real huh? Proved wrong here.

Azliana Lyana : We only see the surface but never see beneath the ice, wow. Thanks National Geographic for sharing.

Christopher White : Flat earthers gone quiet 😂

The Kommandant : It is fortunate for them that they did not bore into Base 211 while they were playing with their water drill. We do not appreciate unannounced visitors.

gotta modify : that's just one ice shelf tested on a cold day, test a few more on days its abnormally worm and I bet they find melting ice.

Johnny Favorite : Wasn’t a majority stake in National Geographic purchased by climate change denier Rupert Murdoch?

SandMan Jono : Once again I am in awe with our beautiful planet always leaning something new via NG Thanks NatGeo for such an informative & well shot film

Chasem1916 : Michael Savage Has Been Talking About this For years now Nat Geo listens

T AN : Al gore you are an idiot who made a lot of money off of global warming that’s not true.

themccman : Global warming is a myth

Kell Arellano : The Ross Ice Shelf is 500,000 square km, with very different climates and features. Where was this site drilled? What do the other drill sites show? What time of year, and how often during the year, are samples taken?

Cyberslug1 : Only surprising to democrats! They lie, lie and lie some more and then exposed as liars but people still believe the democrats and their lies even though scientific results have say the opposite of their claims.

ِ ِ : that whole they dug will become a weak point hence the ice will break hmmmm

LibertyJava : Amazing how quickly our brief respite from our current ice age is finally ending.

Evolution. Questiontime : Ah, Global Fooling? Opps, sorry, Cooling?

PANDA BLAZE13 : that one dude that drops their phone in there

Bud Bud : i feel uneasy watching this.

NickPDX22 : Global warming isn't nor has it ever been *The issue* , CLIMATE CHANGE however, that's the MF to be paying attention to! Mini ice age here we come!

bladerj : if they used hot water drill doesnt that mean, they contaminated the water they wanted to investigate ?

The Dream : This video was stupid, and did not demonstrate anything. @National Geographic are you guys baiting for views?

Sameer Saleem : Wow

Golden 47 : So does that mean *TRUMP* was Right all along?!

Xuregar : Let's boost this by getting rid of diesel and fuel driven cars.

WinArmy : so they expected ice to be melting hundreds of meters beneath the surface?!thats why i go with religion!

Devawrat Vidhate : So that you can drill holes to extract oil ....from Antarctic....Nice try Nat Geo

kinbread : I thought this would be the least intresting video because i read the title: "Deep Bore Into Antarctica Finds Freezing Ice, Not melting, As Expected"

lIl klinesh lIl : *trippy*

Felix Torres : under that ice is TONS of greenhouse gasses that are stuck under the ice

Silver Moon : Can someone please tell me whats the name of the background music as well as the ending music? I really hate it when they don't put the names in the description..


julio santiago : Flat earth

Susmit Sarkar : Is it okay to drill into the ice shelves of Antarctica, I mean wouldn't it affect the global sea level.
