I'm so sorry!  I forgot your post (which I did read, honest!) amid the questions about the 'silo' and 'UFO' [my thoughts] sitting atop it.  (In my cropped version, the conduit looks like the white line on a paved road!)  Now all I see is a field of bitumen wasteland in the foreground, on this side of a raised roadway.

So (belatedly):  good catch, Magnamentis!

Sewn twice holds better haha....

the bitumen is typical flat-roof sealing against water wich in our hemisphere is mostly covered with gravel, so that i don't see when the drainage is blocked with sahara sand and regularly end up with upto 30cm of water above my frightened head) once every 3-4 years LOL ;) ;) ;)

yeah, i know, shouldn't be lazy and clean once a year but then ..... :D :D :D

Wasn't sure where to post this - For those looking for live images, Nav Canada has a site with Live weather cameras at a lot of Canadian airports.  Many of the cameras at northern Airports have a bit of the sea in the background.

There are so many thoughts that come to mind--none of them pleasant. What if . . . ? What if there was a guy, only one guy, all by himself in the lower left of the image, climbing up that rock face. What would that call to mind?

empty shells filling the void with valuable assets that in the process loose much of their value for some time until the empty shells have left the face of the earth for good.

Beautiful sentinel image (dated 030619) of the blue ice at the head of Tanquary Fiord, north central Ellesmere Island.

Reminds me of a leopard's head.

+1 my thoughts since days and all this bullshit for bragging rights and a few selfies.  :-\ :-\ :-\

I refrained from commenting until now, but our national broadcaster presented (for far too long) the story of one person that complaining that he nearly lost his life due to the line ups. It was prompted by the fact that "so many"people had been dying on Everest lately. Where the helll are our priorities, have we lost our collective minds?

He never realized that he *was* the line-up, but somehow thought he was "special". He was portrayed as heroic, rather than what he really was, entitled and self-indulgent.

I have decided that the "mountain climbing adventurer" epitomizes why we are so royally screwed. Selfish, narcissistic individuals, caring only for themselves, are engaging in a pointless exercise and in the process, leaving their shit behind, both literally and figuratively.

I take faint comfort in that the majority of the commenters about the above article were having none of it, many in harsh but valid terms.

Cue Pogo quote here.

Is climbing a mountain evidence that one can conquer nature? (Is that still a thing?, in popular parlance.) Might such energy be better spent encouraging nature not to conquer us?

Interesting article in the Guardian regarding the Carbon Pump caused by zooplankton...
See https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2019/jun/07/oceans-demise-the-end-of-the-arctic-as-we-know-it
From The Guardian link, great video to watch the vulnerability of the ASI (with waves, small floes and people above):
Which is the best answer to Sep-2012 ASI lost (compared to 1979-2000)?
50% [NSIDC Extent] or
73% [PIOMAS Volume]

Volume is harder to measure than extent, but 3-dimensional space is real, 2D's hide ~50% thickness gone.
-> IPCC/NSIDC trends [based on extent] underestimate the real speed of ASI lost.

I sometimes see attachments and sometimes don't.  Sometimes it is because my work environment blocks things (like twitter); other times, who knows?  I sometimes go to "Properties" and copy the URL (if not twitter, etc.) and paste into a new tab, like I did with the down-side up ice.  [Who knows were the top side went - I sure cannot see it!   ;D ]
Example attached.

Those are freshly calved ones, right Etienne?

I suspect the one i posted above to have drifted around for some time.

Not so fresh because the pictures were taken between Aasiaat and Ilulissat, it means that they had to go out of the Icefjord.

I have another picture with some small boats, just to give you an idea of the size of these things.

If I remember well, there is not much overturn in the Icefjord, but depending of the way the calving happens, they are up side down or not.

It was really beautiful., but I wonder how much it has changed. We took the ship from Narsarsuak to Ilulissat, and that was also an experience, with storms and all what you can dream of, we were all sick, even the guide.

Thanks for telling me. I made an own GIF of it so i could upload it to the forum myself, but it was just way too big even with compression.

Thought linking it might be the smarter choice.

The first post contained the mp4 as an image, therefore it didn't show.
The second post contained it as a direct link, which enabled the forum software to recognize it as an mp4.
