The Mendenhall Glacier outside of Juneau was called the Sitaantaago by the local Tglinit tribes. The fifteen mile-long ice mass is located 12 miles from my house here. The bus can get me there in thirty minutes, although a tramp of 3-4 hours is required to reach the western glacier.
A week ago I hiked to Nugget Falls and napped on the gravel sand spit for an hour.
Back in the last century the glacier covered my resting place.
The cause of its retreat has been attributed to global warming.
Not everyone agrees with that thought.
This week Donald Trump announced his decision to pull out of the Paris Climate Accords.
His fat minions in their SUVs rejoiced by eating more fast food.
Some had to get the Mickie Ds faster.
Trumpites were in a frenzy.
They hate everything French other than French Fries.
They hate the EPA
But they love their Trump.
He's one of them and they want to be him.
A rich white man.
Unfortunately the CIA knows he's Pakistani.
Which is why he loves the Saudis.
# 45 is one of them.
ps The Saudis have not withdrawn from the Accords.
Only Syria, Nicaragua, and the USA.
pps I will always love Paris.
