A melting polar bear

On Nytorv in Copenhagen this polar bear made of ice have been quickly melting in the mild December weather. Another symbol of the melting glaciers and polar caps this was made by English artist Mark Coreth with the skeleton frozen inside an 11 ton ice cube to begin with. Not much ice left here, and this photo was taken more than a week ago. A similar polar bear have been placed on Trafalgar Square in London.

This is the last day of the climate meeting in Copenhagen. Now we might return to normal again after a week of demonstrations, traffic jams and media hype. Tomorrow the Christmas Holiday starts for many so then my Christmas theme will begin too.
