North Pole Island
This month, satellite pictures have confirmed that, due to global warming, the north pole is now officially an island for the first time in it's history since before the last ice age over 125,000 years ago. The rapid rate in which the North Poles ice caps have been melting have been and continue to be catastrophic for huge numbers of species that rely on the delicate ecosystem of the North Pole. Some species that are immediately threatened with extinction are Polar Bears, Ringed Seals and Walruses. Also under threat are Krill, which use the ice as a nursery. Krill are the main food for Whales, Penguins and many other animals who will be in serious trouble when the Krill is not available.
It is considered common knowledge by many that global warming is a human made disaster and one that can only be halted by us humans. You can make a difference by getting involved, re-addressing your lifestyle choices and spreading the word. Good luck!Posted in Ethics and Environment by Pete on Thursday 18 September 2008
