To appreciate the true scale – if not horror – of what is happening in the Arctic read this:
Right now the Arctic ice is melting so fast we’re losing ice the size of Tasmania every day. This year’s melt has already smashed all records, and is still going.
The frightening part? Melting ice exposes seawater that absorbs more heat from the sun, making the cycle worse. Yet this story is not all over the front pages.
Arctic ice always melts in the Arctic summer, then freezes from mid-September. But when it melts this much, the world should take heed.
What can we do when the media ignore colossal news? Well, 13 million Australians are now on Facebook, and people reading this article could reach half a million of them. We can’t fix the lack of ice, but we can fix the lack of information.
Let’s step up where the media failed and spread this message everywhere. The Arctic melt is staggering new evidence of climate change.
As I said before, if stock markets crashed like this the response of government’s would be very different.
