A is for the Arctic, Which is Melting

  1. Well said on an important topic! I saw a particular glacier once, then returned 4 years later. I was shocked at how much smaller it was. It was hard to fathom that so much had melted in such a short time. If only everyone could have a similar experience, perhaps they would believe.

  2. This is a very well written post. I’m still not completely convinced about the human effect on global warming. From what I’ve read, according to scientists and geological records, the polar regions were once warm with lush vegetation and there were vast seas where places like deserts now exist so maybe that was the more natural state of things. Or as other scientists have suggested warm and cold eras are merely cyclical. Studies can be manipulated and end up with deceiving results.

    But I do agree about being good stewards of the earth and doing what we can to make it a better place to live. I’m still waiting for cars like in Back to the Future or ones the run with hydrogen generators. The big oil companies are likely pushing back against development of non-fossil fuel engines. I’d love being able to drive without having to depend on expensive gasoline.

    1. Thank you! I urge you to read more on the subject as humans are most definitely pumping unprecedented amounts of greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere. Climate changes happen over eons, what we are doing is causing very sudden and very unnatural changes, especially to the polar regions. But as you say, whatever each of us believes specifically about what is natural and what isn’t we can agree that sustainable energy is clearly better than burning fossil fuels I am sure, and something has to be done about the push-back from the big oil companies. Thanks for reading!
