    Saw "Sun come up" in NYC. Anyone questioning whether the melting of glaciers is for real need only see what it has done to these native peoples who had prided themselves on their independence. Excellent work, Tim & Jen. Thanks for bringing this important topic to the forefront. You've got my & Mike's vote and those of your loyal environmentally conscious following.
    Keep up the great work!
