Last Intact Ice Shelf in Canadian Arctic Has Collapsed

By Democracy Now

HAVANA TIMES – The last fully intact ice shelf in the Canadian Arctic has collapsed, losing over 40% of its area — a piece larger than the island of Manhattan — in just two days at the end of July.

The ice shelf’s melting has been attributed to rising temperatures as the Canadian Arctic have been over 9 degrees Fahrenheit warmer this summer than the 30-year average.

  • No matter what your political views, every single thing pales in importance to the looming disaster of the climate crisis. I don’t care where the solution comes from, but Capitalism, especially the US variant of endless, wasteful consumption, has caused it, and has to this day, resisted any measures which would infringe on profits. Really, todos estamos embarcao.
