Arctic Sea Ice Melting, Polar Bears Drowning

Polar BearIt is not a good time to be a polar bear. “A new study finds that Arctic sea ice [search] in prime polar bear habitat is breaking up earlier in some cases leading to polar bear drownings, with direct impacts on the species' ability to survive and reproduce.” Their usually frozen Arctic Sea ice is melting [more | more2 ]. Sometime soon passage to the North Pole will be by boat only.

“Arctic sea ice is melting in winter far faster than before, two new NASA studies reported Wednesday… Scientists point to the sudden and rapid melting as a sign of man-made global warming… For more than 25 years, Arctic sea ice has slowly diminished in winter by about 1.5 percent per decade. But in the past two years the melting has occurred 10 to 15 times faster.”

This sudden and rapid Arctic ice melting as a sure sign of man-made global warming. How many polar bears need to drown before humanity sees that climate change threatens all life forms – and is barreling down on humanity?

    I am sure the late and lamented Steve Irwin would have empathised with the Polar bear: If we can't save their habitat let's save the species!

    Why does Google Earth show all the Arctic sea ice as having gone already?
    GoogleEarth clearly shows the correct sea ice for the Antarctic, so where has the picture come from that shows the arctic sea virtually completely clear of ice?

    The link between Mind and Social / Environmental-Issues.
    The fast-paced, consumerist lifestyle of Industrial Society is causing exponential rise in psychological problems besides destroying the environment. All issues are interlinked. Our Minds cannot be peaceful when attention-spans are down to nanoseconds, microseconds and milliseconds. Our Minds cannot be peaceful if we destroy Nature.
    Industrial Society Destroys Mind and Environment.
    Subject : In a fast society slow emotions become extinct.
    Subject : A thinking mind cannot feel.
    Subject : Scientific/ Industrial/ Financial thinking destroys the planet.
    Subject : Environment can never be saved as long as cities exist.
    Emotion is what we experience during gaps in our thinking.
    If there are no gaps there is no emotion.
    Today people are thinking all the time and are mistaking thought (words/ language) for emotion.
    When society switches-over from physical work (agriculture) to mental work (scientific/ industrial/ financial/ fast visuals/ fast words ) the speed of thinking keeps on accelerating and the gaps between thinking go on decreasing.
    There comes a time when there are almost no gaps.
    People become incapable of experiencing/ tolerating gaps.
    Emotion ends.
    Man becomes machine.
    A society that speeds up mentally experiences every mental slowing-down as Depression / Anxiety.
    A ( travelling )society that speeds up physically experiences every physical slowing-down as Depression / Anxiety.
    A society that entertains itself daily experiences every non-entertaining moment as Depression / Anxiety.
    FAST VISUALS /WORDS MAKE SLOW EMOTIONS EXTINCT.
    SCIENTIFIC /INDUSTRIAL /FINANCIAL THINKING DESTROYS EMOTIONAL CIRCUITS.
    A FAST (LARGE) SOCIETY CANNOT FEEL PAIN / REMORSE / EMPATHY.
    A FAST (LARGE) SOCIETY WILL ALWAYS BE CRUEL TO ANIMALS/ TREES/ AIR/ WATER/ LAND AND TO ITSELF.

    URBAN SPRAWL – MOTHER NATURE'S RAPE
    The urban sprawl mauls Mother Nature's wonder.
    The capitalists' sins,
    profit and gain,
    reign while Chaos grins.
    Slowly sowing the seeds of destruction
    with a manic push for production;
    lulled into carnal security,
    too blind to see.
    In the end many will have profited their temporary gain,
    then watch helplessly their desperate childrens' pain.
    Wondering when they could have saved
    their tiny ones from dying of thirst
    or a belly full of hunger.
    A man will trade his mansion on high
    for food and water so his child won't die.
    Nothing will escape the planet-wide mistake
    of Mother Nature's rape
