Noted. Thanks, Cal. Scientists are very concerned about this. I read an article earlier that stated the possibility of our Earth warming even more than previously predicted....and faster than previously predicted.

This must be extremely worrying low lying countries which may in a few years from now diissapear under the sea.

Scary. We have ruined this world and we're now paying the price. And people still deny climate change. Facepalm.

And even though many of us are now trying to heal the planet, I admit I fear it's too little, too late...

It's a pity our scientists aren't governing our countries. Most Governments are just playing at green policies. There will be no increased activity to bring a halt to this issue all efforts will be targeted to work around it. In the meantime our greed will determine the outcome of this planet and we all know where that's heading.

From another article" The last time it happened was in 1889, so while manmade global warming is clearly involved it isn’t necessarily the entire story.

A new report in Nature on Wednesday has now helped flesh out the explanation: data from Summit Station, at the frozen island’s highest point, 10,551 feet above sea level, show that unusually warm temperatures in the region were enhanced by a blanket of low-level clouds that trapped extra heat from the Sun."
