Everyone (who is paying attention) knows that Greenland, Canada, Alaska, and Antarctica are losing a lot of ice.
According to NASA and Princeton University’s Harig and Simons, they are losing 387 billion tons of ice/glaciers per year.
I need to say this again: 387 billion tons of ice per year! And that’s not the worst part. Antarctic glaciers are destabilizing from below via warm water channels. The warm water erodes the ice shelf base which in turn accelerates the rise of the sea level.
This scares me more than just about anything. Why aren’t we discussing solutions? Instead we are mired in a ridiculous political circus that focuses on abortion, immigration, gay rights, and other less important issues.
