Melting away

June 27, 2010

Like the witch in The Wizard of Oz, only this isn’t necessarily amusing or relieving: The ice at the pole is “melting away, melting away.” These links via a scientifically-oriented friend of mine, who says, “As of today, by every measure (even ROOS) we are on a record melt course for the arctic.”

Check out the north pole webcam and the lakes that are forming on the ice. (the photo at the upper right is extraordinary; click on it to enlarge to full size)

Check out the video.
