The ice cap has hit a record low, full melt is now considered inevitable, it has begun,.

The question remains, will we awake?

I do feel the economic concerns are paramount getting money out of government will at least give us a chance to address the question.

Will we allow each of us in the name of nation and freedom destroy the very condition that our lives depend on?

Will we allow those that make decisions decide that they can find a nice place to live and that to fix the problem would be just too expensive.

One thing seems to be set, that the longer we wait the more expensive it becomes, so we are set in a classic build of tension the longer the wealthy keep “winning” the worst the resolution will be.

I believe when you look at the data it is reasonable to predict that the Arctic Ice will drop below one million square Kilometers next year, you read it here first.
