What does a catastrophe look like?

NASA took the photograph on the left on July 8, 2012. It took the photograph on the right on July 12, 2012. What do the two photographs signify? They indicate the melting of the ice on the island of Greenland. NASA scientists first concluded that a mistake had been made because the change in ice conditions on Greenland were so striking and rapid and were also unknown to recorded history. But the photos were not parts of a mistake. They instead depict an evolving mistake that will eventually bring ruin to much of the globe.
Let us hope this melting event fails to become an yearly one.
