The Arctic ice cap shrank so much that waves briefly lapped along two long-imagined Arctic shipping routes, the Northwest Passage over Canada and the Northern Sea Route over Russia. Complicating the picture, the striking Arctic change was as much a result of ice moving as melting.
A host of Arctic scientists say it is too soon to know if the global greenhouse effect has already tipped the system to a condition in which sea ice in summers will be routinely limited to a few clotted passageways in northern Canada.
As we move along with those pictures we can see the Arctic ice caps are melting but very fast. In 2005 the scenario was much worst.
All those pictures were taken on September 16th each year, which is right after the summer. Summer 2007 shows a record breaking loss of arctic sea ice. Experts attribute the changes to the interaction of wid. Weather, ice drift, ocean current and greenhouse gases. (more…)
Global Warming is an environmental issue that is continuing to harm our planet. The definition of Global Warming is “the increase in the average temperature of the Earth’s near-surface air and oceans since the mid-20th century and its projected continuation” (Wikipedia). Therefore, if in the winter snow melts faster than it snows then there has to be something wrong with Earth because average temperature for many years that change one year? The answer is Global Warming. All of sudden icebergs started to melt in Antarctica, North Pole, Greenland and Alaska because of Global Warming. “If we could see with our own eyes how fast the icebergs are malting and hear the sound cracking and crashing of icebergs one into another, we would realize better, what we are doing to our own planet” (An inconvenient truth).
“It is now clear that we face a deepening global climate crisis that requires us to act boldly, quickly and wisely” said Al Gore.
World population is increasing day by day and our environment is changing day by day. We are changing our living style to eating habit. This video is a great example of it.
This video was made in fall 2006, University of Oregon, Geography Department.
The picture was taken on the “”side”” of one of the main road in Dhaka. Most of the time wastes are on the road because containers are full or some people are looking for food and other stuff so they throw it in the road from the containers; even though containers are not full but wastes are on the road.
Environment could be different kind built environment, natural environment, physical environment etc. When we talk aobut environment in general we referre to the natural environment that encompasses all living and non-living things occurring naturally on earth.
