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”.
