If you don’t live or visit the poles, you likely believe that ice is just ice. Watch this great TED talk to see both its beauty and its importance…

I’d love to visit the Arctic or Antarctic some day, if I could do it without a negative impact on the environment.

My main problem would be the negative impact OF the environment.  smile

True….. confused I don’t do bitter cold very well. I suppose I’ll just look at the films and dream…it’s safer!

My wife and I don’t like to be exposed to cold either (Buffalo is plenty cold, thank you) but ice’s natural beauty and its contribution to the environment are things too few people recognize. I thought the pics were amazing and I now have an appreciation for the leopard seal’s apparent belief that we are rather dumb.  downer
