Picture of the week 44


Climatic truths are rendering the glaciers atop Mt. Kilimanjaro smaller by the day. This process has been unfolding for hundreds of years, yes, even before “global warming”. Although I think “man” could be a wiser steward of the planet, I’m of the opinion this ice was going to melt, in time, but also, in time, return and “man” will not affect the process greatly with energy credits or carbon neutral strategies.

As “man” continues to struggle with good stewardship, however, I have, and will always possess, the coveted photograph of, yours truly, standing triumphantly with the sublimating ice.

In 15 or 20 years, a picture like this will not be possible.
