Ancient Ice Shelf Breaks Free from Canadian Arctic

As an update to my last entry, today CNN reports that the 41-square mile Ayles Ice Shelf, one of the six major ice shelves which remain in Canada's arctic, broke off the coast about 16 months ago. According to scientists, this "disturning event" shows "we are crossing climate thresholds."

The whole idea of global warming scares me to bits. The shameful part of it is that we have known for decades what we are doing to our home and yet we still continue to pollute and poison it. Shameful.
