    Greg, I believe that you assume that readers of your comment will know that they should click on your name to link back to your blog. The article that you wrote is at

    I had seen the TED talk (link in Greg’s blog article). Anyone who thinks that climate change is just an intellectual exercise should see James Balog’s time lapse cinematography. It is beautiful and terrifying.

    Everyone who travels in the mountains around here knows that all of the local glaciers are in retreat. It is stunning to see the retreat in time lapse, and also discover that it is not local, it is global.
