Introducing Ugmug McDuff



As the Arctic sea ice disappears the rate of thawing across the vast expanse of arctic permafrost triples - threatening all sorts of feedback unpleasantness. On the plus side we'll get all manner of ice age throwbacks er... thrown back.

Meanwhile - the UK government thinks about doing away with tedious pollution regulations so as to facilitate the expansion of Heathrow -contrary to all public consultation and all good judgement.

Cute cartoon.

Let's shift to reality though and look at the polar caps.

I've seen studies of plant fossils discovered under the Antarctican ice, and I can only guess that similar fossils exist by the North Pole.

What do you think?

I guess the oil companies and fellow travelers are banking on there being a lot more than the odd fossil there. The Arctic countries have already carved up the area for exploration/exploitation now that so much of the polar ice is going, I believe.
