Image of the Week: Northwest Passage Opens

For the first time in at least half a century, and likely far longer, a clear channel has opened through the Arctic ice, now visible even from space. From Eli Rabbet’s blog, with lots of amusing comments.

(Update: a new report from NOAA based on twenty climate models and CO2 already in the atmosphere sees a much faster retreat of the ice than expected — which will not surprise most of my readers.)
