Melting Mendenhall Glacier

Heres an news story from NPR that, though a couple years old, is still so valid.

Visitors to a Shrinking Alaskan Glacier get a Lesson on Climate Change

“It’s just a statement that’s out there, normally… And it doesn’t really mean much to you until you really see the physical evidence of it. Especially since we’re able to touch the glacier there and know what we’re losing.”

Within the article is an audio news clip, also from NPR about Obama’s visit to Alaska during his presidency. Though perhaps not the most popular person for his actions during this time, but attempting to bring awareness to the issue, rather than denying it.

This is the famous Mendenhall Glacier in Juneau, Alaska. These are some Then and Now pictures showing the dramatic change over the years. Try to tell me Climate Change isn’t real.

(Also, Grizzly – Polar Bear hybrids. So real. So scary.)
