With a few weeks of melting still to go, Arctic sea ice is already at record lows

Ouch. Check out the National Sea Ice Data Center's weekly updates on the Arctic.

Note how the ice is receding from land. And take your kids to see Arctic Tale. It's a great combination of a Walt Disney animal tale, a National Geographic Special, and a blow to the head.

Well, I would take them, but there are no penguins in the movie, so how can it be funny?

Everyone knows that penguins are funny, no matter what happens to them. This movie doesn't look funny.

It is true there are no penguins in the movie, but there are a whole lot of farting walruses. How can a farting walrus not be funny? Especially when Queen Latifah is narrating the entire scene?

Hi Z,

Well farting walruses might be funny to my kids, but there's just nothing like watching an emperor penguin get its head ripped off by a leopard sale.

Now THAT'S entertainment!

You get to watch a cute little harp seal get yanked out of its breathing hole by it's snout and torn to ribbons on the ice by a polar bear, does that count for anything?
