The Big Melt...

You might well have already seen that ITV News are running a series of features about Antarctica and global warming this week, with reports live from the Antarctic... I missed the first one this evening, but there is lots of information on the website - including video clips, a quiz, websites and an opportunity to email your questions about Antarctica and climate change (unfortunately it's to their Science Editor, rather than Geography Editor, but you can't win 'em all!).




Click on the picture to go to the site, and make sure you're watching tomorrow...

I've seen a couple of articles that might interest you and your readers recently:

First of all, the doomsday clock. The planet would be seriously damaged by a nuclear war ...
Doomsday Clock

Secondly, your readers will no doubt love the picture on this link:
Weirdest animals facing extinction
This article is about some of the weird and wonderful animals found on our planet that are facing extinction.

I hope both are suitably geographical and of interest ...

(Have you any interesting religious, philosophical or ethical issues that I could feature on my blog?!)

Thanks Mrs K for those! Can't get the Doomsday Clock link to work, but will search for it in a minute. The "slender loris" certainly is rather weird!

Will have a think about religious, philosophical and ethical issues... But don't expect great things!
