Melting landscapes

For thousands of years the Arctic had remained unchanged; an imposing universe, that also conceals an acutely fragile equilibrium. The massive burning of fossil fuels has lit the fuse on global warming. The continued melting of marine ice is deactivating the colossal planetary thermostat that is the Arctic Sea. Very soon, over the coming years, there will be no more icescapes in the summers of the North Pole. And even if the emissions stop today, the planet will continue to heat up as a result of the discharge into the atmosphere. Two degrees Centigrade. A two-degree difference with respect to the average pre-industrial temperature is what safeguards the Earth from a point of no return.
