New research into past atmospheric carbon dioxide levels reveals potential for widespread melting of Antarctic ice that would push sea levels up by 20 metres. Up to a third of Antarctica's ice sheets melted three million years ago when C 0 2 levels were similar to today, according to a Victoria University of Wellington-led study. The research is published in the journal Nature today.
