Greenland melting


I don't know what to say.  Seiing this dramatic image from NASA( http://www.nasa.gov/topics/earth/features/greenland-melt.html) really brings it home. 

While there have been past episodes of melting with the last one in the 19th Century, we are currently at the beginning of a very serious crisis.  Surely, seeing this stark warning we should pause and really think about the conasequences, but I am afraid that I do not have much faith, one only has to look at the TV to see what is more "newsworthy", and where our money is being invested and one can only speculate on how the companies such as Cairn Energy and Shell which are wanting to drill in the arctic will recieve this news
