climate change and melting glaciers (blog log 2)

Climate change has always interested me because people are so quick to ignore it and pretend like it doesn’t exist. It has always troubled me how people could even possibly brush off one of the worlds biggest problems. I have always been intrigued at hearing others ideas towards a solution for climate change, and what small things people can do everyday to help. Another problem the world is facing with climate change is melting glaciers. In central Asia a warming climate change and vanishing glaciers means less water, and dead crops for their towns. Writer Jeremy Engle composed an article along with a PowerPoint, in an attempt to enlighten people about what climate change really means, and what affects it has on other people around the world. His work describes the struggles and research the towns people have to go through to prove the glaciers are retreating, and how they are trying to overcome the problems resulting from their loss of water supply. I like this article because it really opens your eyes to how much climate change is rapidly increasing and what we need to do to stop it.
