Upsala Glacier Shows Effects of Global Warming
When it comes to GLOBAL WARMING, I like to use photographs to exemplify the concept. I think these photos of Upsala Glacier are completely self-explanatory!
UPSALA GLACIER SHOWS EFFECTS OF GLOBAL WARMING
The effects of GLOBAL WARMING are hard to ignore, when one is faced with before-and-after photographic evidence. The seventy-six years between the two photographs above show considerable damage to our planet. The melting of glaciers is a very serious thing; as it affects the gulf stream, the temperature of the ocean currents, the strength of those currents, and it even affects the life in the immediate area of the ecosystem.
The two photos above are of Upsala Glacier, El Calafate, Argentina. The top photo was taken in 1928, and shows an intact shelf, with no noticable cracks or melting.
The bottom photo shows what I must refer to as Upsala Lake, and this is because that is what it looks like --- a lake. The peaks have shortened, the shelf is just about gone, and there appears to be very little glacier left.
Even a CHILD could understand what is going on in these two photos, but NOT George Bush Jr.?
While the glacier melting is merely one piece of the puzzle, what it shows is dramatic and it shows that the wholesale damage to the total environment, may be happening ON PURPOSE.
My only question is this:
"Who's got a ticket on the spaceship outta here, WHEN (and not IF) the time comes?!"
This might sound like a peculiar musing, but, it has really made me wonder WHY the POWERS THAT BE, INC. [a global corporation] would deign to do something like this ON PURPOSE?!
