What do you do with all those industrial plastic fish bins after they have been used to empty out the sea?

Egilsstaðir

You make a beach, that’s what you do — into a lake that is now severely compromised by hydroelectric dam run-off,  and  then  you  sell  it.

Glacial Tongue @ the Global Warming Show

 

I thought I’d look up from the Glacial Lagoon …

… show of humans being beautiful for themselves and for each other by posing (warmly) within luxurious images of humanly-initiated global climate change…

… to see what the glacier thought of all this. Ah, well, look, I’m glad it did. The cheeky thing…

… was sticking its tongue out at us! Just a tiny bit. Between compressed lips.
