Global warming, carbon emissions, the vanishing ice cover… these are all things that are on the minds of us all these days. Ever imagine what would the Earth look like if the World’s ice simply all melted? Well, now thanks to National Geographic you can see a model of just that. The projected result is a World where the sea level would rise more than 200 feet, coastlines would be forever altered and the average temperature would be about 80 degrees Fahrenheit. A scary thought indeed…

I know I’ve often looked around and shook my head, saddened by how much people (including myself) are truly missing out on because we have our face stuffed in our phone… next time you pull it out perhaps you’ll think of this video, I know I will! Thanks to FilmsforAction for sharing.
With the busy travel season and holidays just around the corner you’ll definitely want to be informed about weather and the latest extreme weather forecasts. For mobile device users there’s plenty of fine options, make sure you have a good app and even a local alert system to push updates to your mobile device. If you’ll be flying, check departure times regularly, particularly just prior to stepping out the door to head to the airport. An easy solution is to google your airline carrier name and flight number to see the latest status report… flight aware is also a fabulous system to use and can save you from wasting time. For iPad users wanting a fun yet useful weather app I’m really digging ClearDay, it’s useful and quite beautiful too! Other mobile apps that are on my MUST HAVE list include WeatherBug and iMap WeatherRadio, the latter providing real-time alerts and pushes the notifications to my device.
