Such a terrible momentous event, totally obscured in the media here by the insane hype around some woman giving birth...The ice cap should have been top story... :-(

Abosolutely true - I googled the news sites and only 2 tabloids (Sun & Mail) were running the story in there lesser pages...

*almost* more depressing are some of the comments underneath..."What do you expect, it's summer"...that sort of thing...there are still some...many....(just listen to talk radio)...who think this is all some sort of liberal-socialist conspiracy.

Yes. The difference between 'climate' and 'weather' just beyond the grasp of even people with a 'good' education....
Here, our current overlords tried to leave Climate Change out of the new curriculum all together (there was little wrong with the old curriculum that teachers couldn't fix at the chalkface, but they must impose changes on us for ideological reasons...). Fortunately, a former colleague of mine petitioned loudly enough to have that stupid idea dropped, but it does leave me thinking that humans mostly deserve the world they have created for themselves....My sympathies now lie entirely with the other innocent species who don't deserve any of this.
