Holy shit, entire Greenland ice sheet's surface melted in few days this month, this is a planetary ecological emergency

"We welcome NASA's ability to monitor the Arctic, yet statements there is no cause for concern are just ridiculous. I don't accept this is a natural cycle; it is too coincident with Arctic sea ice melt, and what is happening to the Arctic in general. When the entire Greenland ice sheet's surface melts in a few days, abrupt climate change has arrived, global ecosystem collapse has markedly intensified, and the human family clearly faces a global ecological emergency," states Ecological Internet's President and global ecological sustainability expert, Dr. Glen Barry. Arctic melting – and continental heat waves and other instances of extreme weather – are entirely consistent with decades of scientific predictions regarding anticipated impacts of climate change. What is so alarming is the speed and intensity of the observed abrupt climate change. Sudden accelerated melting of ...
