A rapidly melting world

Bears

Following on the heels of two important news stories — that polar bears are approaching extinction and that the Arctic is rapidly melting — comes further evidence dually bolstering the claims of those two stories:

The Arctic’s largest ice shelf has fractured.

I have very little optimism left on this topic, except my strong belief that Mother Nature will keep chugging along, finding new ways to adapt in spite of all the environmental degradation.

But it pains me to think of all the species and habitat that will be destroyed first, and the chaotic, dirty and troubled world we’re handing to future generations.
