Stunning Photos of Retreating Glaciers

I was poking around the National Snow and Ice Data Center web site and found these amazing photos. Next time someone tells you Climaticide is a hoax just show them these photos and remind them that about a billion of the earth’s people depend for their water supply on glacial run off. If we don’t take prompt, effective action nearly all non-polar glaciers will be gone by the end of the century.
