More than 95% of Antarctica’s oldest ice has melted according to the 2018 Arctic Report Card released by the Arctic Program on December 11th. The annual report touches on all arctic conditions ranging from ice loss and temperature fluctuation, to microplastic pollution and health threats. The report card reveals that the Arctic is breaking air temperature highs from prior years and is in no state to return to its cold, frosty conditions of the past. New risks, such as the sharp decline in landfast ice, rose in 2018 and already existing threats, like the progressing melting of Antarctica’s thickest ice, worsen the Arctic environment.

Students who want to use a gender-neutral bathroom have to get a key to unlock it from a teacher and walk to one of the few staff bathrooms available for students of all gender identities to use. Going out of the way to find a gender-neutral bathroom is an experience that many of the members of the GSA are familiar with, and gender politics and issues of identity can be tough to navigate at Woodside.
