It can't be slant... the grammar and punctuation is too correct ( for slant )

Bad year for Arctic ice.

http://time.com/4709913/arctic-sea-ice-winter/

The high point for Arctic sea ice levels hit a record low this winter, sea ice monitors said Wednesday.
Sea ice covered approximately 5.57 million square miles on March 7, nearly 500,000 square miles below the average winter high in recent decades,


Temperatures around the globe have spiked in recent years due to man-made climate change, leading to several years of record-breaking heat, and few places have been hit harder than the Arctic. Temperatures over some parts of the Arctic were more than 5°C (9°F) warmer than average between October and February, according to NSIDC.

The report is the latest in a string of disappointing news about the state of the Arctic. A December report from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) found that the Arctic experienced the lowest snow cover and highest land temperatures on record last year. And sea ice levels also reached a record low last fall.Scientists studying man-made climate change worry that the situation in the Arctic may bode poorly for the rest of the planet. Countries reached an agreement in 2015 to try to keep temperatures from rising more than 2°C (3.6°F) above pre-industrial levels by 2100, a target scientists say is the level the world must meet to avoid the worst effects of climate change.

Climeworks will implement it's NEW CO2 Collector on May 31st, in Hinwil Switzerland, which scrubs CO2 from the atmosphere. It's not going to make much of an impact, only removing 900 tonnes of CO2 per year, but it's a start. Over time, just like every other form of technology, it will become cheaper and more efficient - this unit is 18 times more effective than the unit produced in 2014. It's a positive step towards ending global warming. :thup:

Just came across this programme to encourage more tree planting in Ontario:

http://www.forestsontario.ca/planting/programs/50-million-tree-program/

If only I had a spare acre or two to turn into forest, I would sign up, too. :(

The city of Hamilton is cutting down all the Emerald Ash trees in the city to try and get rid of or at least control the Emerald Ash Borer which has caused a lot of problems for these trees. Not sure if they are planting new trees in place of these ash trees although they aren't actually removing the stumps from what I can tell.

On PEI they have a similar program. I got 460 spruce planted on our property.

Sweet!

460 though? Does having that much property make you the king of PEI? :D

Well, he's a Tiger-Cat fan, so that seems unlikely.

Sad to see this in Columbia. But saying off the top of your head it's due to climate change seems a bit over reaching to me without a lot of hard research behind this.

Santos blamed climate change for triggering the avalanche, saying that the accumulated rainfall in one night was almost half the amount Mocoa normally receives in the entire month of March. With the rainy season in much of Colombia just beginning, he said local and national authorities need to redouble their efforts to prevent a similar tragedy.
