Global warming alert
In a story that is more important than Saddam’s execution, scientists have discovered a major ice shelf that broke off an island in the Canadian Arctic in August of 2005. It is said to be the largest break in 25 years, casting an ice floe with an area of 66 sq km (25 square miles). The chunk of ice bigger than Manhattan could wreak havoc if it moves into oil drilling regions and shipping lanes next summer, scientists warned.
Global warming is real and if enough ice melts at the polar ice caps, the potential for disrupting ocean and wind currents dangerously increases, whose ripple effects you will feel immediately. This problem is surmountable, play your part.
