10. SOUNDBITE (English) António Guterres, Secretary-General, United Nations:
“I was shocked to learn that the ice shell around the Antarctic in September measured 1,500 square kilometres less than it did in previous years, an area equivalent to Portugal, Spain, France and Germany put together. And I was also shocked to learn that ice in the Antarctic, as well as in Greenland, is melting three times faster than it did in the nineties, just decades ago. We have to come out from here with renewed energy and renewed will for COP - in which I will participate in a few days in Dubai - and to call on to those who are politically responsible at a global level to assume their responsibilities to combat climate change in order to save the Antarctic and to save the planet.”

STORYLINE:

Secretary-General António Guterres on Friday (24 Nov) called “on to those who are politically responsible at a global level to assume their responsibilities to combat climate change in order to save the Antarctic and to save the planet.”

During the second day of his visit to the Antarctic, Guterres and Chilean President Gabriel Boric visited Germany’s scientific outpost at Chile’s Bernardo O’Higgins base and was briefed on the work being done to monitor changes in the ice shells with the use of satellites.

Later in the day, the delegations travelled to Chile’s Eduardo Frei base where a radiosonde was released.

Guterres said, “I was shocked to learn that the ice shell around the Antarctic in September measured 1,500 square kilometres less than it did in previous years, an area equivalent to Portugal, Spain, France and Germany put together. And I was also shocked to learn that ice in the Antarctic, as well as in Greenland, is melting three times faster than it did in the nineties, just decades ago."

The radiosonde is an instrument that measures meteorological variables after ascending more than 20 km tied to a balloon. The data are recorded by the TARP-02 research platform of the Antarctic Research Group of the Universidad de Santiago de Chile (USACH).
