majestic glaciers
the hottest day on record—
Antarctic meltdown

Poetry form: Haiku

"Argentina's Esperanza Base on Antarctica's Trinity Peninsula reached 65°F (18.3°C) on Thursday, notching the continent's warmest temperature in recorded history.  Why it matters: Antarctica is one of the globe's fastest-warming regions with temperatures rising 5°F (2.8°C) in the past 50 years, spurring the retreat of 87% of the glaciers along the Antarctic peninsula's west coast." ~axios.com - February 7, 2020 - Energy & Environment

Wow! Great to ponder. I personally saw a glacier retracting in Alaska, having visited it a few years apart. Eye opening.

That must have been something to see. I’ve only seen such on news reports and documentaries. Thanks, Kim. ~Mark

Awful, yes, and especially sad since it appears likely that man could be responsible for it. Thank you for the comment, Michelle. ~Mark
