Sitting at home, and what should go past the flat, but an iceberg with a polar bear on top of it.

Iceberg on the Thames - 1

After having a WTF moment and grabbing the photo, I am now wondering where in the “Dummies Guide to Climate Change” did it mention icebergs in the River Thames.

Alternatively, it could be a publicity stunt for someone too shy to put a brandname on the iceberg (or the bear’s fur?)

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    or a museum exhibit? certainly is a great photo for all of us who hold chaos close to our hearts 🙂

    too small, probably took a lot of work but just looks like a lump of polystyreen.

  3. Am I the only person to see the inherent ludicrousness of drawing attention to the melting ice caps by making a model out of polystyrene and/or plastic (it must be lighter than water, after all, in order to float) – both materials that will never biodegrade but hang around for EVER? And which probably contributed tons of CO2 to the environment during their manufacture? Eh? Hello? *knocks* Anyone home?

    bummer–wasn’t a sign of immanent chaos 🙁
