Do we stand by, in the name of progress, and ignore the decimation of our wildlife.!!!!!!!!!!! By what criterion do we measure progress? It's not as clear cut as it appears. Maybe we should sit back and take a long hard look.

I'm  well aware of that Donald. Don't you consider arctic exploitation a danger to wildlife?

They aren't drilling in Seattle.  They are parking the rig there until the Arctic thaws a little more.

Mexico City landscape, 20 million inhabitants

It Was Warmer in Antarctica Than in New York City Last Week — and T...

By Meredith Hoffman, March 30, 2015

"Part of Antarctica hit a record high of 63.5 degrees Fahrenheit last Tuesday, the hottest ever reported, according to the climate monitor OGIMET.

"By comparison, Washington DC was 46 degrees, New York City reached 45 degrees, and the temperature in London topped 50 degrees.

"While scientists warn not to draw conclusions from a single weather event, the temperature record hues closely to more alarming, long-term trends in the southern continent.

"Antarctica's floating ice shelves have recently decreased by as much as 18 percent in some spots over the last 18 years, says a new study, published in the journal Science. As the oceans have warmed, they've spurred more of the frozen mass to become water, researcher Fernando Paolo told VICE News."
