    methane is a greenhouse gas which will cause the ice to melt because of the heat, if ice melts... what happens to the penguins?

    if they have to migrate, where will they go? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:AIRS_Methane.png if they try to come down, they will be entering the tropics before descending down to the more cold region down the south hemisphere. they will die and their population will decrease due to shorter and warmer winters... there won't be much cold for too long due to the increase in methane in the atmosphere
