Melting glaciers in Greenland

leave a comment »

So there are many doubters about warming of earth. Do those people ever take the time to look at pictures like this one snapped on the Helheim Glacier on Greenland. Pools of summer melt water are in light blue.

Scientists are trying to measure the progress of glacier melting there and the NY Times had a gallery of images that I snipped from:

Global warming skeptics, look at this photo of the capital of the Maldives and deny climate change

leave a comment »

While the sources of greenhouse gases are often in the industrial world, consequences often are visible in non-industrial areas. The Indian Ocean nation of Maldives, which is struggling to hold back rising seas, is one such example. The capital Malé, seen here, is one of the world’s most densely populated cities. Nearly 104,000 people are crammed onto an island about a square mile in size.

Maldives has an international airport on Hulhulé Island. The runway is just 6 feet above sea level. At high tide, that can narrow to just 20 inches.

According to the Guardian:

This year is set to be the coolest since 2000, according to a preliminary estimate of global average temperature that is due to be released next week by the Met Office. The global average for 2008 should come in close to 14.3C, which is 0.14C below the average temperature for 2001-07.

And you thought global climate change was making the world hotter. So check out what they have to say about cool UK in 2008.

Oh well it’s only seawater! I thought Venice had or was installing some great water barrier! Where is it? Does it or will it ever work?
