In July 2012, while wandering around on a flight to the US, I looked out the window and got to see what Greenland looks like from above.
When this ice melts, it raises the ocean.
And the mountains will be bare rock, as they have not been since before the ice ages began.
There's something deeply tragic about a planeload of people, sitting in their seats, windows shuttered, watching the videos streamed to keep the populace happy —while if they chose to look up they could see the great icefields melting. Arguably, that's a description for society as a whole —and all of us in it.
