Thanks Chris for the video report on Tianshan Glacier. Very sad indeed that this is happening to this glacier but also worldwide.

Mother Earth is slowly (but exponentially) ridding herself of us...the toxic "carbon units".

....we are killing the earth, the only home for life as we know it, and yet some still want to drill, drill, drill and use everything we can from the earth for their greed and selfishness (i.e. see those who want to use the nearing ice free arctic for drilling, shipping, etc rather than trying to save it for those who need it for life like polar bears, seals/whales/etc)....

"It is certainly not a time to be ambivalent or complacent. It is certainly not a time to just think that government leaders should take care of the problem for you, for you must now look to your life and to your circumstances...Now you must reckon what you have created. You must reckon your condition. You must reckon your circumstances. You must reckon the world that you are creating for yourself. For humanity has squandered its natural inheritance...This is the world you have come to serve. This is the world you have created. ..You must take responsibility that you have played a small part in creating them...For in the face of the Great Waves of change there is nowhere to run and hide...Only Knowledge within you, the deeper intelligence that God has placed within you, will know how to deal with these circumstances and with the immense change that is coming for humanity. Only this deeper Knowledge, this sacred Knowledge, will know how to navigate the difficult times ahead, will know how to sail the troubled waters, for troubled waters there will be." read more www.greatwavesofchange.org
