The machine that keeps us alive will be the end, education and words will not change the path, the few in comparison to the masses can not change the path. The machine is consumerism this addiction is worse than all other drugs. We as a people built this unstoppable thing that will destroy everything good. Nice picture,
The original article this came from is just nauseating.
"It’s how we learned that Earth’s climate can change profoundly. If we weren’t changing it now ourselves, if nature were still in control, we’d be due for another ice age in a millennium or two. Conversely, if we burn all the coal, oil, and gas still underground, we’ll melt every last speck of ice on Earth. Glaciers remind us: We’re at an interesting fork in the road"
If nature was still in control ??? Where do these people live? you think a few ppm of CO2 in the atmosphere is somehow taking control of the climate away from "nature" ?? there is ZERO evidence of AGW; zero evidence that glaciers are melting DUE to AGW, and a 0.02 degree rise in sea temperatures over the last 10 years is insignificant. This pathetic scaremongering has to stop
After the initial awe it filled my mind with a fear when it struck me that what I am seeing is actually only one-ninth of the actual picture!!
Gorgeous capture...love all the textures, beautiful work and congratulations on your photo of the day!
What a sight!... But, why is environment deterioration not in the order of the highest priority in the governments of the leading nations!...
The erosion from the melting ice looks very similar to the Devils Tower monument; the same vertical lines etched in the surface from cracks and fractures. Thank you for an opportunity to view a landscape that most of us will never see.
@Mustafa Sasmaz Because most people realize that it is a hoax. Climates have been changing for billions of years, why are people suddenly believing that they can actually detrimentally influence climates? It boggles the mind.
Fantastic picture, nonetheless.
