An iceberg frozen within pack ice, near the floe edge off of Navy Board Inlet in the Canadian high arctic. The decline of sea ice in this region during recent years has been substantial, threatening the existence of many species in the region.

As a result of anthropogenic climate change, it is predicted that - within the next several years - the North Pole will be free of ice in the summer, meaning that ships will be able to pass over the pole for the first time in recorded history. 
While such a trend may prove beneficial for shipping costs, such climate change threatens all of us. With each square mile of ice lost, more and more of the sun's energy becomes trapped in the atmosphere, expediting further climate change in the future.

Hi, @brianskerry! A similar picture was tagged to you by @natgeo recently but it was crooked. I think they got hacked. They even posted how to cook an Iguana for Christmas lunch.

No you atmospheric idiot, the short wave radiation gets absorbed by the ocean it does't just magically float around in the atmosphere. Photographers like you who have no clue how the atmosphere actually works have been pushing this bull shit " the poles will be ice free" since the 90s, still hasn't happened. You know that " in several years" the poles WON'T be ice free because the models used to predict this insanity are awful.
