I am stunned almost to speechlessness.The northeast passage across the siberian polar ice is open. The glaciers on Ellesmere Island and the northern and northeastern shores of Greenland are collapsing within a matter of days. The channel between Greenland and Ellesmere Isalnd is open. And only about 250 miles of ice remains on the north shore of Greenland connecting it to the polar ice. And that is breaking up.
Vast stretches of polar ice are pulverized and floating free in the Arctic ocean. Thousands of square miles of ice are pulverized and on the edge of breaking up into a billion ice bergs.
An immense rent has formed in the ice north of Queen Victoria Island. An even larger tear reaches up from Siberia poking at the north pole itself.
The entire north shore of Akaska is Ice free, as is all of the northern Siberian shore - all the way to the New Siberian Islands and beyond.
The last of the ice blocking the Northwest passage at the east end of Queen Elizabeth Island is breaking up.
In short, the north pole is falling apart. And some claim global warming isn't real!?Within weeks, the refreeze should begin. Depending on how long it is before that happens, massive changes may occur at the pole before the freeze. The polar ice may well break free from land on ALL sides!!
This is one of the most astounding events in all of human history. And where is it on the news????
It's beginning! the end of oil in sight, global warming now well underway, and 35 years to turn it around, because the effect is way up there - so we have this stuff all at once and no amelioration for three decades. Wonder how many of us ostriches will survive.
