Part 2: Glaciers from Space

I had posted a previous blog about the lighting seen around the world from outer space.  I am back at it again with more images, however these deal with glaciers.  I found this particularly interesting especially since global warming has been a hot topic over the recent years.  In the article the author mentions, “only 26 named glaciers remain out of the 150 known in 1850. They are predicted to be completely gone by 2030 if current warming continues at the same rate”.  Pretty scary scenario if you ask me.  Feel free to browse through them as well and let me know what you think. The link to the article is below!
