Rivers of Ice

If you're one of those Doubting Thomas's who have been brainwashed into denying that we're slowly destroying Earth with global warming, here's the exhibition for you: Rivers of Ice: Vanishing Glaciers of the Greater Himalaya at the Royal Geographical Society in London until 11 November, admission free. Photographer and mountaineer David Breashears matched his modern photos with historical images to reveal dramatic glacial loss in the Greater Himalayan region (title link). The above photo shows the loss of the Lower Baltoro Glacier in Tibet (2009). CLICK to view an excellent Paul Kerley audio slide show made for BBC News.
