Peru is home to 71% of the world's tropical glaciers, which are a source of fresh water for millions, but 22% of the surface area of Peruvian glaciers has disappeared in the past 30 years alone, according to The World Bank.

As I read through some of the comments there I couldn't help but think, why do these people NOT think. The evidence is overwhelming. Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth had graphs, before and after pictures of glacier melt, they are all over the internet, yet people still deny the evidence though it can be seen with their own eyes, if the scales ever drop off them and they look. Here are just a few before and after pictures. Glacier Melting. The same can be seen the world over, there is not a single glacier growing larger, not one. And the Greenland glacier field is receding farther, faster every year. Yet people still deny what they can see with their own eyes, ideology trumps proof. This IS a mad world.

The climate is unfavorably impacted by the US government shutdown. We need to show how critical this is and how out-of-touch the climate deniers are.

Truly tragic how much of Mother Nature's beauty we are destroying. If it were only the beauty it would still be bad, it is the dependence of humanity that is on the line. There are so called "scientist" who are climate change deniers, yet I know with 100% certainty that these "scientist?" have been bought and paid for by the big corporations who will NOT ALLOW the truth to be told, these companies only live for bottom line PROFITS! ultimately it does not matter these pseudo sciencist own up to their mendacity, the damage being done will destroy humanity. Rich, poor, young old we shall all be affected. Be it in 50 years or 100 years, we are done for. Some intelligent beings that we are? NOT!

A video that these climate change deniers all need to see! If continue on the track that we are going, we will risk losing all life on this beautiful planet, our home, including ourselves as we recklessly destroy our essential resources! Thanks Cal for this post.

This is perhaps the earth ways to reduce the number of people on this earth, we'll soon be 7 billion and who will limit the number of people if we do not understand this problem, stop the propagation of the people, we consumes the earth.
