Beautiful Pictures, Stark Warning

New Scientist has put up a gallery of pictures called Final Warning From the Arctic.  The sobering truth of global warming is there for all to see.

The other night, the Berkeley Yacht Club hosted a screening of An Arctic Journey in a Changing World.  This is David Thorsen's documentary of the the transit of the Northwest Passage by the yacht, Cloud Nine.  The footage shows dramatic changes that have occurred in the ice density over the last 15 or so years.  This is an interesting fairly short film that is available for web viewing from Iowa Public Television.
