A few days ago, Iceland held funeral for its first glacier lost to climate change.
.
As the world recently marked the warmest July ever on record, a bronze plaque was mounted on a bare rock.
.
The plaque bears the inscription: "Ok is the first Icelandic glacier to lose its status as a glacier.
In the next 200 years all our glaciers are expected to follow the same path.
This monument is to acknowledge that we know what is happening and what needs to be done
Only you know if we did it."

The Old Man of Storr (“Storr” is old Norse and is thought to mean “Great Man”) was first climbed in 1955 by English mountaineer Don Whillans, a feat that has been repeated only a handful of times since.
.
Anyone wants to try? Maybe @cabtheman ?

I was so obsessed with the shape of these mountains.
The range in the back surrounding the lone peak in the centre, an old glacial valley in between.
.
Looking forward to going back to Scotland for another #rewilding week with treesforlife.org.uk sometime soon.

"I see you".
.
It's quite an experience finding yourself face to face with a bull in a remote area in the woods.
And if you have to walk past it - since it's right on your path - you really do your best to move as slowly as possible, and look as harmless as possible. It follows your movements.
.
Even though it wasn't what we were hoping to see (bears being the reason we went to that area in the first place), that bull had quite an effect on me. With its impressive and fierce presence, and dignity I had only observed in wild animals before. Miles away from the prevailing image of farmed cattle.
.
But the sad reality is that, in a not-too-far future, that bull will end up being loaded on a truck and stripped of that dignity.
.
I wish more people experienced these animals in this setting. I wonder if their conception of them as "second-class animals" would change at all.

"Things that normally happen in geologic time are happening during the span of a human lifetime" - Fagre.
Which means that this majestic mountain glacier might be gone in about 30 decades, because of global warming.

It's a matter that concerns all of us, here's something each of us can do to help: bbc.com/future/story/20181102-what-can-i-do-about-climate-change
