Bye bye Greenland. Well, a glacier anyway.

      It is not. It is the indication of the fact that the financial overview page is password protected.
      (By the way it has nothing to do with this particular post, the melting glaciers.)
      You will get an email with the password if you wish to see it. Please let me know.

    That has been happening for a while now, and other glaciers elsewhere have been melting too. The consequences? Everybody is talking about it but little effort is made to seek a solution, and prevent the foreseen catastrophes. We appear to be living in a comfortable world, in control of our destinies!!

    Melting Gangotri Glaciers in .India have caused havoc in Kedarnath this year. Climate has changed quite drastically. God only knows what is in store for the next year!!
