"400...A scene of Beautiful Tragedy"
Everyday day the Breiðamerkurjökull glacier in Iceland calves more ice into the Jökulsárlón lagoon. This results into some incredibly beautiful sights especially when the ice reaches the Atlantic Ocean. Tragically though the rate of the melting is accelerating. We have now passed the 400ppm CO2 level permanently. Scenes like this are becoming more and more common globally as glaciers quickly melt and recede. As an atmospheric scientist I found this morning on the beach overwhelmingly emotional. This is what a dying earth looks like.
