Every soup ladled to the hungry, every blanket draped over the cold signifies, in the final sense, a theft from my gigantic paycheck.

More than half of 2016 constituted historic daily lows in Arctic sea-ice extent:



Edit:

I've read that:
  • Sea-ice mitigates solar-warming of oceans
  • Sea-ice is important to convective currents which warm Europe
  • These rely on the presence of old (read: thick) ice, as opposed to yearly fluctuations in new (read: thin) ice
  • Arctic-warming increases (potentially colossal) methane emissions from thawing permafrost
At this point, a 'Climate_Change.jpg' thread implicitly about panic and live-blogging the end of the world would probably be sustainable
