This feature on the BBC News site was recommended to me by Chris Vere in New Zealand, a fellow budding writer (thanks for passing this on Chris!) Its about an exhibition currently being held at the Royal Geographical Society in London with photographs of the Himalayas as they look now compared to how they looked 80 years ago. The photos show, somewhat alarmingly, how much the Himalayan glaciers have retracted since the time of the great explorer George Mallory.
The feature itself consists of a video approximately three to four minutes long. Well worth a watch and somewhat shocking!
Note to climate change sceptics – care to tell me how you explain this one? Sure, global warming is a natural process – one that we’ve kick-started due to excessive carbon emissions and too many of us (and the animals we farm for food) being on the planet!
Still think we don’t have a problem?
