Arctic Sea Ice Shrunk to Lowest On Record

The arctic’s ice caps continue to melt and has shrunk to the smallest size it has since it was first recorded. U.S. scientists state that the world is now venturing into more dangerous climates as drastic changes become more intense.

The ice cap has melted to 1.32 million sq. miles in Sept 16 based on Satellite images. This prediction of measurement is seen as the lowest point of the arctic based on comparison with its other measurements from 1979. According to the National Snow and Ice Data Center, this is the lowest arctic ice cover they’ve measured.

NSIDC Director Mark Serreze States that the world’s environment is in danger. The continuous glow of global warming can be measured with the changes in the Arctic. Now that it has ventured to great lows, the world can only be prepared for the worst.

NSIDC scientists state that the arctic’s “ice-free conditions” are approaching faster than their earlier approximation of 2050. The increased heat and moisture from the melting arctic ice caps can cause global climate disasters and severe consequences. Climates may be more extreme in the coming years.

Environmental activists Greenpeace stated that based on the announcement, it should call upon the attention of industries and businesses to make action to slow the melting of ice cover in the arctic. They also state that in just 30 years, humanity altered the surroundings faster than expected.

Balaji Telefilms To Shoot Once Upon a Time in Mumbai Sequel in Oman

Balaji Telefilms, a renowned Bollywood filmmaking company, will be shooting the sequel to “Once Upon a Time in Mumbai” in the country of Oman. This is the first time a Bollywood movie is to be shot inside the country. The CEO of Balaji Telefilms, Taruj Garg, states that the sceneries and the natural beauty of Oman has compelled him to choose the country among other locations.

Garg states that the retro and contemporary architecture mix delicately and perfectly while the white sand and clean beaches fit the entire script of the sequel perfectly.

Choosing Oman as the location of the new film resulted from the location scouting done by a Balaji team earlier this year. Garg stated that director Milan Luthria and he saw the beauty of Oman that made them consider it the top choice for their shooting location.

The Ministry of Tourism and Oman Air had helped the Balaji Telefilms crew to shoot scenes in the last few weeks in many locations around Muscat. Many locations will be familiar to Omanis as soon as the film is done. While shooting a film inside Oman is the first time for the country, Balaji Telefilms states that the country’s authorities are very responsive and proactive, in which they are very thankful for.

Oman is a location that most filmmakers are not too familiar with. With “Once Upon a Time in Mumbai Again”, Oman would be exposed to the world, helping it gain tourism and help it move from an unconventional choice into a perfect, beautiful shooting spot.
