A giant ice shelf… snapped free from an island south of the North Pole, scientists said Thursday, citing climate change as a “major” reason for the event. The Ayles Ice Shelf—all 41 square miles of it—broke clear 16 months ago from the coast of Ellesmere Island, about 500 miles south of the North Pole in the Canadian Arctic.
“This is a dramatic and disturbing event. It shows that we are losing remarkable features of the Canadian North that have been in place for many thousands of years,” Vincent said. “We are crossing climate thresholds, and these may signal the onset of accelerated change ahead.”
This asshole was spotted using a greenhouse-gas-spewing leaf blower at 16th & Aloha…
Lip service isn’t going to reverse climate change, Greg. A “green” mayor he would do something about these dirty, noisy, unnecessary monstrosities. Ban ‘em, Greg.
P.S. Please note that there aren’t any leafs to blow at 16th & Aloha. Just… dust. Or something. Whatever it is this guy is getting off the sidewalk, a broom could do the job without drowning any fucking polar bears.
