Antarctic glaciers melting faster than thought

( Foto: FOTO: HEIKO JUNGE / SCANPIX )
Associated Press has written an article about the climate challenges.
"
Glaciers in Antarctica are melting faster and across a much wider area than previously thought, a development that threatens to raise sea levels worldwide and force millions of people to flee low-lying areas, scientists said Wednesday."
I do not know if that is the reason why this lady is running up to the Nordmarka Forest (for skiing), but agree that if the sea level rise of 7 to 23 inches by the end of the century, the world will see millions of people migrate and seek a future in new areas. That is not why the sign at Ullevålseter shows the distance to Dakar (12924 km) Have a nice trip where ever you go this weekend.

Tja, vet ikke helt hva jeg skal tro om denne klimakrisen jeg.

Uansett flotte bilder hos deg som vanlig, Tullen er `still beautiful` og jamen har dere oppholdsvær også.

Ha en flott fredag Arne. Denne damen gleder seg til snart rødvin og lakris, en vidunderlig kombinsjon

La snøen være i Arktis og Antarktis, så slipper vi den. Søndag drar vi omtrent så langt syd som vi kan komme i dette landet.

Almost ALL people don't really pay attention to this issue. But they have to realize that the earth is turning into a time bomb. I could hardly imagine the water rising to a very threatening level. It's really pretty scary.
