Emaciating glaciers

Alaska 2012 295

On a holiday in Alaska a couple of years ago, during a helicopter flight above the glaciers, from where I took the photo, I was told that glaciers have actually been in retreat since 1850. Industry has a lot to answer for.

Silent sweep
Turns to swifter drifting
Mountains weep
As warmth is lifting
In global breath
Our planet to a certain death
