Man, it’s been a busy as heck couple of months. First, I’ve been busy with a brand new job, developing the web software of tomorrow, today.

Second, I just yesterday got back from mi luna de miel. What with that and helping with wedding planning, my life was purty dang busy.

Anyhoo, enough about me. What I bring to you today is a good video from TED Talks showing time lapse proof of extreme ice loss.

James Balog, a photographer, founded the Extreme Ice Survey to capture the changing glaciers by time-lapse photography and video. His goal is to show everyone visual proof of just how fast glaciers are melting.

Without any further ado, I bring to you his talk.

Sending it out, an SOS

Look at them polar bears. Just look at them. Dang 🙁

How can you help them out, you might ask? Welp, the least you can do is to help spread the word about energy conservation by emailing the Natural Resources Defense Council and requesting some free “Unplug for Polar Bears” and “Turn Off Global Warming” stickers for chargers and light switches. Email them at polarbearsosinfo@nrdc.org, and por favor give them your mailing address and how many sets of stickers you need (each set contains six stickers, 3 each of “Unplug for Polar Bears” and “Turn Off Global Warming”). “Supplies are limited so please keep your order to two sets, unless you have a special need for schools or institutions.”

If for some reason you think you’re better than the rest of us, and feel you can somehow do more than just ordering free polar bear stickers, then you can find out other ways to curb global warming rotch here. So please, act now. If not for yourself, then for the baby polar bears.

brave-snowman.jpgHello concerned citizen,
I come to you today as a representative of a vanishing species of snow-people. My people used to have a proud way of life, replete with ancient traditions and snow-cow sacrifices. But now, we are being hunted to extinction by Brother Sun. Please, get yourself a free “Save the Snow” sticker now, before it is too late.
With coldest regards,
Sir Frosty

Video of Arctic Ice Shrinking

Sadly, this post isn’t about helping the environment and saving money. It’s about global warming. It’s not about how much of it is man-made and how much is happening naturally, it’s just to show how fast some big changes are happening.

This picture shows the North Pole in 1979 and then in 2007. The pink area is arctic ice; the darker the pink, the thicker the ice.

North Pole global warming

That’s a pretty big decrease in ice cover, but it is over 28 years, so maybe it’s not all that bad. But look at this video from NASA showing the north pole from September, 2005, to September, 2007 (only two years!).

In just the last two years, a huge amount of artic ice has melted. Whether it is because of man-made pollution, or natural warming, a change this big should not be ignored. To paraphrase Nelly, “It’s getting hot in hurr”.
