Its beyond me how people can deny climate change. Last night I went to a photograhy talk, part of which involved a series of photos looking at the effects of climate change on the people of Kiribati. Challenging stuff.

As Ann said, it is beyond me.

It is sad that we may be the last ones to see some of those magnificent glaciers.

Oh i have to agree with the others, our planet is going through some devastating changes. What a fine image here D. Your range constantly amazes and pleases me.
I"m glad you are back with us. You are an inspiration to us all.

Oh my goodness. A stunning shot that really brings home the horrors of climate change.

Wonderful, wonderful image. Sad, sad reality.

I am looking at a 1980 photo here on my desk taken of my husband and I in front of an entrance to the Paradise Glacier ice caves of Mt. Rainier. The caves are no more since the 1990's, and the glacier itself has rapidly receded way up the mountain. Photos I've seen of summer climbers in that area the past five years look like a moonscape.

An important and impressive shot!

Going green is so much more than turning off the lights or using clothe shopping bags instead of plastic, it's knowing what is really happening to our planet and living differently. A beautiful if sad reminder.

Especially worrying when we are actually overdue for another ice age, according to the previous cycle of these things.
