Decorah, Iowa eagle cam; you have to watch an advert:

Wind River Mountains glacier study photos archived at the Casper Star-Tribune:

Early September 2003, in the middle of the night, water filled the lake at the toe of Grasshopper Glacier to its tipping point. Pressure grew against the natural dam of rock and ice, and around midnight, water burst through the barrier.
From a Colorado College poll posted at Headwaters News:

Agree that the EPA should closely regulate carbon emissions:
Colorado - 70 percent
Montana - 62 percent
New Mexico - 65 percent
Utah - 63 percent
Wyoming - 56 percent

Cool that you came by, kw.
