Greenland Is Melting

And not just like regular melting in the springs. Full-blown giant glaciers are going away, rivers are being create, and overall things are looking pretty wet for this mostly-white place.
If fully melted, the giant ice sheet of greenland could could increase sea levels by about 20 feet...Yup, 20 feet!
The melting of Greenland is accelerating because with hotter temperatures comes the creation of lakes on top of the surface of the ice, which in turn generate flowing rivers. These rivers find giant holes in the ice, and connect with the ocean through tunnels. It melts, flows, and adds to the ocean water.
In an effort to showcase (and perhaps help the scientists behind this research) the NY Times wrote a beautiful article on the melting ice, showcasing videos of ice and flowing water.
Helped by NASA grants, researchers are worried about the increased pressure in Congress. Where Republican leaders question the “scientific consensus that human activities contribute to climate change."
So why aren’t we giving scientists and researchers money to help study this change?
Well, it seems like giant ice rivers of melted glacier isn’t enough evidence to show we need science and research in these areas. If we don’t start giving them the tools they can to rosearch this, then we are doing ourselves a grave danger.

What are your thoughts Vinglers? Should we use more money and resources on helping understand this problem?

The way things are, I think it would be impossible to stop it anymore. Instead, we should research ways of surviving it, while also researching ways of reversing it. It would be impossible to completely cut the need for fossil fuels, so instead, keep using them and begin investing in alternatives.
Okay, 1. there's no need for investments, the cause is global warming and anyone out there who believes that global warming is a lie is deluding themselves (nicest way to put it). And 2. before anyone's like "but we've seen some of the coldest winters lately" let me tell you that global warming is a term for the drastic changes in temperature (therefore the fact that some places are reaching record low temperatures means that other places are reaching record high temperatures). Sorry if you think I'm crazy, but it's true. And if you think that 20 feet is a lot, then look at how much the oceans will increase if Antarctica and the North Pole melt too.
@nicolejb I don't really get how people can deny climate change....it's science, it's provable, are they all creationists too?
Totally @Polarstar379 I don't think you are crazy at all, I think you are absolutely right. But the scientists need funding to understand it better, and find ways to survive and reverse the effects of it. Because the more you understand the problem, the more you can work to finding how to defeat/fix it. like @Dynamo said :)
@Polarstar379 If people don't think 20 feet is a lot, they should have a look at this simulation and see how much of different cities dissappear underwater at different sea level rises. http://geology.com/sea-level-rise/new-york.shtml I live on the beach to be close to the water, not in it.

Top 5 Benefits of Yoga Mats You Must Count
Practicing yoga can ensure you a healthy lifestyle, away from mental illnesses, and physical problems. If you are passionate about doing yoga regularly, it’s necessary to practice it in the most effective form. While most people don’t consider putting a yoga mat underneath, but it’s necessary to get your physical and mental support throughout this. The following points will help you understand why you need yoga mats. Comfortable and Convenient: Using yoga mats helps you get a comfortable zone in doing yoga. It requires strength, courage, and motivation to practice yoga every day. And when you have that support underneath your body, it becomes much convenient and comfortable to hold strong during the entire time. Safety: Sometimes, practicing yoga on bare slippery floors can be injurious. Since your hands get sweaty and you lose control while making different moves, your hands could slip off the floor and you could experience injuries. No matter how conscious you are, there can be unexpected moments you haven’t thought of. Therefore, it’s better to remain safe and sound during your yoga session. Increased Attention and Willpower: It’s not that easy to hold on to positivity all the time to practice yoga and exercise. You must have the attention, concentration, motivation, and willpower to start your day with yoga and activity. A yoga mat manufacturer makes mats in such a way that it creates an environment to divert your mind for exercising, keeping yourself active, and be health-conscious. Maintain Your Balance: Yoga sessions require holding your body balanced for a long period. You couldn’t do it all along on bare floors. Even if you try it with a blanket or sheet, they would slip off. But yoga mats are made to support people in maintaining body balance on the floor. Maintain Your Hygiene: Practicing yoga on direct floors can be unhygienic in most cases. You don’t get to mop or dust the floor all the time. Therefore, germs and bacteria can attack your body when you are all sweaty. A yoga mat can help you ensure a hygienic surface instead.

How decentralized finance News will transform || business financial services
How decentralized finance News will transform || business financial services Decentralized finance had a resurgence last summer. Cryptocurrencies like bitcoin and ether are now becoming more widely accepted for payments and USD Coin (USDC) has made significant progress towards being an asset that will maintain its value without future depreciation. A global, open alternative to the current financial system. Products that let you borrow, save, invest, trade, and more. Based on open-source technology that anyone can program with. Decentralized Finance is an open and global financial system built for the internet age – an alternative to a system that's opaque, tightly controlled, and held together by decades-old infrastructure and processes. It gives you control and visibility over your money. It gives you exposure to global markets and alternatives to your local currency or banking options. Decentralized Finance products open up financial services to anyone with an internet connection and they're largely owned and maintained by their users. So far tens of billions of dollars worth of crypto have flowed through Defi applications and it's growing every day. What's Decentralized Finance News (Defi)? Defi is a collective term for financial products and services that are accessible to anyone who can use Ethereum – anyone with an internet connection. With Decentralized Finance News, the markets are always open and there are no centralized authorities who can block payments or deny you access to anything. Services that were previously slow and at risk of human error are automatic and safer now that they're handled by code that anyone can inspect and scrutinize. There's a booming crypto-economy out there, where you can lend, borrow, long/short, earn interest, and more. Crypto-savvy Argentinians have used Defi to escape crippling inflation. Companies have started streaming their employees their wages in real-time. Some folks have even taken out and paid off loans worth millions of dollars without the need for any personal identification. Understanding Decentralized Finance The term Decentralized finance, or Defi for short, describes a financial system that operates without the need for traditional, centralized intermediaries. We’re used to everything going through a bank and other financial institutions like a global exchange, but Defi creates a system that can function on its own. Perhaps the most well-known application of Decentralized finance is online transactions through Decentralized Finance News Cryptocurrency, but it allows us to handle a number of financial applications – like investing, insurances, exchanging, borrowing, and lending in a more efficient and transparent way. Decentralized financial services The benefits of a Decentralized finance system stretch beyond online payments. Money transfer is just one aspect of the traditionally centralized financial system, but Decentralized finance looks to replace every aspect, including exchanges, loans, insurance, and saving plans. Smart contracts on Ethereum are what allow these decentralized services to exist, and what allows them to operate fairly and securely.
5 Ways To Save Our Oceans
All the cards this week are making me and my mermaid feeling crinkle up and die. The Ocean Destruction is awful and if you wanna know more about that check out the amazing collection @nicolejb created!! But all hope is not lost. There are ways to not only stop the destruction but reverse some of its deadly effects. Chill With Your Carbon Footprint. One of the main reason the oceans are being destroyed is because of global warming so to help reduce the carbon foot print. Walk more, car pool, take shorter showers, and don't blast your heat in the winter! It really will make difference. Make Healthy and Sustainable Seafood Meals. Many fish species are rapidly depleting do to high demand and vanishing habitats. When eating seafood make sure to choose the options that are not being overexploited. Help Clean The Beach! When you're having a wonderful day at the beach and you stumble across litter, empty cans and plastic don't just leave it in the sand! Because every piece of trash that floats into the ocean ends up wrecking havoc on the animals that live there. Ocean Travel Responsibility Boating, kayaking, and sailing is the perfect way to spend the summer (and even winter for those brave enough). So make sure you travel the oceans respectfully. No throwing trash or chemicals over board. And if you want to take a cruise look for the one that is the most eco friendly! Educate For Change. The damage we are doing to our oceans is slowly becoming irreversible. The only way to make a change is if we are all working together! So educate your community, your friends and your family because our marine friends need our help, or else natural disasters will occur daily.

This French City Is (Literally) Powered By Cheese.
By now, you've heard of alternative electricity sources like wind, water, and solar power, but have you ever heard of using cheese? For one French city, cheese production is responsible for a considerable amount of their electricity. But how exactly do they do it? When Albertville, a city in Beaufort's dairy manufacturing region, makes its cheese, they use special equipment to convert the whey's methane gas emissions into pure energy that can be used to power 7% of the region's electricity. According to the Smithsonian, this is enough to power roughly 1,500 of 20,000 homes. That may not sound like much, but when you consider its potential, the city might just be onto a new avenue for renewable power sources. In the picture above, you can see the Valbio power plant that produces the aforementioned 'cheese power'. While it's the largest of the company's dairy-powered energy plants (and the largest of such plant on Earth), it's not the only dairy plant around. The same company began building the generators over a decade ago and set up similar plants in Europe and Canada - with more to come! In fact, those in the States might be surprised to know that the Fage brand's Greek yogurt also plays a part in powering the region from where it's produced. When Fage is made at its Albany-based plant, the whey used is later pumped to a wastewater plant to produce energy from its fermentation. Pretty cool, huh? So I hope that all of you who decided you'd like to cut down on the dairy going into the New Year re-embrace your love for all things covered in cheese. You're doing it for the greater good of the environment. It's your personal duty to eat tons of cheese. Let me know what you think about this new, cheesy fuel source in the comments below. And for more WTF news, follow my WTF Street Journal collection.
