Seeding Pollution From The Heavens (February 2, 2009)
Geopolitical changes opened the northern polar routes to regular commercial air travel.
Commercial aviation cross-hatches the northern skies and deposits exhaust particles from on high.
Exhaust particles create a black shroud on the white snow and clear ice.
The black exhaust particles absorb the sun’s heat and melt the snow and ice rapidly.
The next day, planes fly over and do it again.
Bumper sticker of the week:
