    Believe The President – Or Your Own Eyes These stunning timelapse photos may just convince you about climate change

    Chelsea Harvey, April 3, 2017 (Washington Post)

    “Melting glaciers, from Greenland to Antarctica, have become symbols of global warming — and monitoring their retreat is one major way scientists are keeping tabs on the progress of climate change…Below is a time-lapse video, using images captured by [photographer James Balog of] the Extreme Ice Survey team, documenting changes at Mendenhall Glacier in Alaska. Between 2007 and 2015, the glacier retreated by 550 meters, or more than 1,800 feet...[The Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets receive the most press and may have the greatest long-term potential to raise global sea levels but] melting mountain glaciers come with their own set of consequences….[As the glaciers shrink away, less water becomes available to nearby communities…[and experts have also raised the possibility that melting mountain glaciers could result in huge floods capable of destroying nearby homes and infrastructure…” click here for more

    Trump Admin Study On Coal Shown Flawed Donald Trump's energy plan based on 'debunked' study funded by coal industry, environmentalists claim; 'In taking a sledgehammer to US climate action, the administration will push the country backward, making it harder and more expensive to reduce emissions'

    Ian Johnston, March 28, 2017 (UK Independent)
