Antarctic Ice Sheet Is Result of CO2 Decrease, Not Continental Breakup

Climate modelers have shown that the most likely explanation for the initiation of Antarctic glaciation 34 million years ago was decreased carbon dioxide levels, contrary to a 40-year-old theory suggesting massive rearrangements of Earth’s continents caused the abrupt formation of the Antarctic ice sheet.
