The Arctic in Pictures

A few months ago, Dubner snapped some iPhone pictures of the Arctic from an airplane. If you’re hankering for some professional photos, check out FP‘s photoessay “The Ice Kingdom,” which includes images of melting glaciers and “[a] U.S. submarine rest[ing] after breaking through three feet of ice on the Arctic Ocean…” [%comments]


I love the picture of the submarine surfacing through 3 feet of ice to make an impact of 'It's worse than we thought'. There are piles of pictures through recent history of submarines at the north pole in varying levels of ice cover . . .

Couldn't they have at least photo-shopped a polar bear or two in there to make their point even better?
