Does This Photo of Alaska Show a Troublesome Trend?

A gorgeous - and rare - nearly cloudless view of the entire state of Alaska was captured by NASA's Terra satellite on June 17, 2013. But is the photo beautiful or a bad sign?

That is climate change, and the ice and snow in certain areas are missing altogether. And the USA government does not see what is staring them right at their faces: they must do something about the global warming, and rather yesterday. I have been writing all evening about the Kyoto Protocol and its purpose of turning back the pollution clock... But the sad truth is that now, with the latest Indonesian raging forest fires and melting permafrost in Siberian Tundra, and by the way, the tundra will and does already release a huge amount of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, they just have been frozen bubbles in the melting peat. And no government - or nearly none - pays any attention. That makes me mad, because I would love to see the future generations living happily on this - still living - planet.
