North Pole on Thin Ice
According to an article I read in The Independent, the North Pole could be free of ice this summer for the first time in human history. I won't bother linking to the article because I think it's everywhere!
Amazing! The north pole going ice free for the first time in history and some people say that global warming is "unproven" or "controversial". LMAO
The article says that the usual ice cap, composed of super thick ice built up over many years, has now blown away from the Pole. The ice up there now is only as thick as the amount of ice that freezes in one year - and has a good chance of melting entirely over this summer.
Tatiana has another new glacier abstract and we will be putting it up on eBay soon - maybe today. Not that it's a big deal but I think these glacier paintings do help in some small way to draw attention to the global warming situation.
