This is my late, hard-to-get-born, submission for this week’s One Single Impression prompt:
a summer’s day Pardon this less-than-cheerful offering…Check out this link for other more artful and heart-warming offerings!

a picture from space is worth a million words

an endless summer’s day is upon us

and not in a good way

unless you are the lucky manufacturer of sunscreen SP 60

like a frog in a pot of gently

inexorably heating water

we’re not too concerned

we can always jump out

The Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets have shrunk in both area and mass. Data from JPL’s Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment show Greenland lost 150 to 250 cubic kilometers (36 to 60 cubic miles) of ice per year between 2002 and 2006, while Antarctica lost about 152 cubic kilometers (36 cubic miles) of ice between 2002 and 2005. –from the NASA/JPL-Cal Tech website on Global Warming

Global surface air temperatures rose three-quarters of a degree Celsius (almost one and a half degrees Fahrenheit) in the last century, but at twice that amount in the past 50 years. Eleven of the last 12 years (1995-2006) are the warmest since accurate recordkeeping began in 1850.
