Firefox, the Cold War and the pending ecological debacle

Remember “Firefox“?  Cold War thriller turned into a film with Clint Eastwood. The Americans steal a Russian fighter plane, then have to land it on the Arctic to refuel…

There’s a scene where a US nuclear submarine breaks through the ice cap, onto which the plane has landed.

These days? Not so much.

excerpt: “The combined result has been a collapse in total sea ice volume — to one fifth of its level in 1980.”
