If this doesn’t melt your cold heart, nothing will.
In Norway, on the Austfonna ice cap, located on Nordaustlandet in the Svalbard archipelago, the ice is melting. Rising sea levels due to early ice melt are causing great concern to scientists around the globe.
Marine photographer and environmental lecturer Michael Nolan captured the stunning picture of the disappearing glacier, and the image that turned up is at once awe inspiring and heartbreaking.

This image clearly evokes the feeling of a face weeping rivers of tears. It is particularly apt given the rapid disappearance of glaciers worldwide.
In an interview with Mail Online, Nolan says ‘The ice cap is losing about 1.6 cubic miles of ice every year.”
Now, whatever your beliefs are about climate change and Global Warming, I find it difficult to imagine anyone not being moved by this image of a forlorn face weeping for her planet.
