Shrinking Glaciers

More sad news about how global warming is impacting the earth. The U.N. Environment Program announced today that glaciers around the world are shrinking at record rates and many could vanish within a few decades. I have loved glaciers since I was a child and was attracted to the regions that contained the most ice. The melting away of these gorgeous rivers of ice is painful to watch. The recession is so severe that I can actually notice a difference from one year to the next in the Cascades of Washington. The Sierra Nevada mountains of California have only a few pockets of ice remaining and these may vanish in a matter of years, not decades. Very sad.
