is another thing.

One would like to follow

the bird in his aquatic life

if only such a thing

were possible.

The penguins sense danger,

so they don't surface.

No other bird lays its eggs on the

darkness of a polar winter ...

or hatches its chicks

in the coldest months ...

of the Antarctic year.

I think we are right to consider

the bird to be eccentric.

They may look silly,

but they're unbelievably tough.

They must walk great

distances from the sea ...

lashed by sub-zero winds,

bellies full of fish and quill ...

to feed their chicks.

At the edge

of the penguins' empire ...

ice bergs move slowly out to sea.

They're pieces of Antarctica,

born high on the continent ...

where snow packs into ice

and flows slowly outward.

If the earth grows warmer,

the movement may speed up ...

and ice sheets as big as

nations slide into the sea.

The sea would rise,

the climate change.

It may already be happening.

As the ice sheet moves,

it strains and splits.

Some crevasses are so huge'

they could swallow a house.

They can be

hundreds of feet deep.

Wind-blown snow gradually builds

crystal bridges ...

across the gap at the top.

The bridges can be quite

invisible on the surface.

Some will support

the weight of a man,

but some will not.

Whoa!

This is only a demonstration.

But this was real.

The driver in this accident

was lucky.

He survived.

But his bulldozer is now

in a long slow grind to the sea.

These ponds look shallow,

but they're not.

When a diver swam

through a hold ...

in the bottom

of one these pools ...

this is what she found.

We're inside a moving glacier.

No other film like this exists.

No one has seen caverns

like this before.

Here, scientists would expect

only rock-hard ice.

So Antarctica reminds us again:
