Himalayas getting warmer – Blog Action Day for snow leopards

Our thick fur doesn't like global warming.

Our thick fur doesn't like global warming.

This blog supports “Blog Action Day” today, October 15th. It’s a global annual event uniting thousands of bloggers when today we post about climate change and global warming. What a great idea, to be linked to thousands of like minded people helping to bring ideas and action and learning about climate change across the globe. We are all in this together.

So just for the record. Snow leopards like the snow, they like the cold. That’s why they are snow leopards. They like it very cold up in their mountain habitats. They don’t have that thick fur, huge warm tail so they can spend time in the tropics. They are not happy with global warming. There is a lot of scientific evidence to show that the average temperature of the Himalayas is actually rising faster than many other parts of our earth. See The Age (Melbourne) article on receding glaciers in the Himalayas.

We CAN take action people. We CAN all do something. Turn the aircon off, eat less meat, drive a smaller car, drive less……it’s all doable. Think of those beautiful snow leopards and let them enjoy snow and cold for more centuries to come. Support Blog Action Day – 12,017 blogs – 155 countries – 17,875,239 readers.

Stop the presses! Gordon Brown, PM of the United Kingdom has joined the bloggers on this today and Greenpeace and Oxfam have also taken part. CNN has just done a feature story on Blog Action Day and not surprisingly Blog Action Day is the top Google search.
