Amount of old ice in Arctic, 1987-2013 - YouTube ("images don't lie; warming undeniable & worsening")

The winter ice pack in the Arctic was once dominated by multi-year*, thick ice. Today, very little old ice remains. This animation shows maps of sea ice age ...

Since 1988, Arctic sea ice is getting younger, and young ice is not a good thing. In 1988, ice that was at least 4 years old accounted 26 percent of the Arctic’s sea ice. By 2013, ice that age was only 7 percent of all Arctic sea ice.

The vanishing act is occurring because climate change is helping warm the ocean waters in parts of the Arctic. Those warmer temperatures are whittling away at older sea ice during the summer melt season.

Replacing this thicker, harder old ice with young ice, which is generally thinner and melts more easily, is also contributing to the steep decline in summer sea ice extent and could trigger a feedback loop. That’s because less ice means more dark ocean water is exposed to the sun, which absorbs more of the incoming sunlight than white ice. That means warmer waters, which could in turn mean even less old ice and ice cover with each passing year.

Watch the 59-second video and you can see the older ice do a vanishing act as it’s replaced by newer ice.

This is interesting. The first one about understanding different cultures being really important. I think it is, but I feel like we don't learn about it in school enough. Same with current events. Our social studies classes seem to only focus on the past when they should be focusing on the past and the present. Take things from the past and compare that to our present. Also, why is Chinese not offered as one of the main two foreign language classes at our school? Its the most popular language spoken in the world.

Even though this only showed pictures it spoke so much to me. Us as Americans are such materialists and have stopped enjowing the simplicity in life and the joys that come from them.

The life of a gladiator wasn't an easy one but trained gladiators wouldn't have often fought to the death, they were to valuable.  Gladiators were well trained and valued slaves for the income that they could bring their owners.

Brandon Sherrill's comment, May 26, 7:46 AM
If I went through what gladiators went through I probably would be aggressive too but I never thought of gladiators as slave but since they technically don't have freedom I guess they still are slaves, it almost seems a waste though to spend all that time and money just to watch one fight and you may lose your gladiator

See how much the Aral Sea has changed due to the impact of humans on their environment for yourself. Drag the slider tool to see a before and after. Reference your textbook (p61) for the whole story.

Amy Marques's curator insight, April 24, 9:46 AM

This map is a true testament to the people who believe human activity does not affect the earth. Humans have been transforming Earth’s surface for years, through direct activities such as farming, mining, and building, and indirectly by altering its climate. Much of the transformation taking place in the Aral sea leads to its connection to the Soviet era and their lack of understanding of the environment. This mismanagement of the Aral Sea is leading to a lack of water for the people who live in Central Asia.

Jess Deady's curator insight, May 4, 7:30 AM

The colors seen in photographs and images like this is because of the equipment used. Sometimes the quality of the equipment makes the pictures look different than they actually are. This basin has dried up over time and its surface has signs of significant change.
