Watching paint dry - the big budget sequel

Live and direct from Greenland, the Ilulissat ice cap webcam. I wish I could embed it, but alas I do not believe it can be done, so click here to see the ice cap melting, or maybe even growing...

Or so they claim: "A new webcam set up in Ilulissat will allow the world to watch as global warming eats away at Greenland's ice cap.

The webcam is set up near the Ice Fjord, a Unesco World Heritage Site. The Ilulissat Glacier, which empties into the fjord, is the world's most active glacier. The glacier moves along at a pace of 22 metres per day and dumps a constant flow of ice into the fjord".

Way back lost in the mists of time, I studied A level geography, and what a fine subject it is too, especially when it involves glaciation. And when glaciers are happily glaciating away and exit to the sea, chunks fall off - these are called icebergs - with this having zip to do with global warming, and an awful lot to do with gravity.

Sod the night out tonight, this is far more exciting. If you want more excitement, read the info in Greenlandic - which I have to admit I had never heard of before, but I am learning very quickly. I understood the word 'webkamera.'
