Latest (bad) news from the arctic

sea-levels-could-rise-more-than-a-meter-by-2100-wwfThis week no less than three news about the arctic hit my aggregator. First and foremost the WWF released a new report on how the melting of the pole could threaten no less than a quarter of the human population.

The second one is about Mr. Ban Ki-moon – the UN secretary general – who visited the polar ice rim to assess the melting and urge our elected representatives to seal the deal in Copenhagen.

Last but not least, a new research shows that Human activity and greenhouse gases emissiosn has stopped a 12,000 years cooling phase of this pole.
