broken glaciers of north pole

I was flying from Dubai to San Francisco. Suddenly realized that I am flying over North Pole and started taking pictures through the window.


Check my flightpath which clearly shows that the flight crosses North Pole.


One can really feel the effects of Global Warming after seeing this picture. I was even thinking how these airlines (very few only though) are allowed to travel by North Pole leaving pollution there too.


While every other passenger in the flight was enjoying in-flight entertainment or sleeping, I was sad and moody for the next couple of hours having seen and felt the nature's destruction.


I request each of you to share this picture with your friends, family and especially your children. We [at least me] always thought the Northern Polar Region is a flat bed of ICE but it does not seem to be so anymore. Every single action of ours that leads to global warming has a serious impact for generations to come.
