'Save the Ice' campaigners on the steps of City Hall last Saturday. Polar ice is melting at an alarming rate due to global warming and is believed to be affecting weather patterns around the world. This group were in Centenary Square to raise awareness of the receding ice and to alert people to the consequences, extreme temperatures, changes in ocean currents and raised sea levels. I think there is some truth in this, the weather in this country seems to have become more unsettled in recent years, just look at the weather we have had so far this year. I suppose only time will tell if these changes are permanent.
