[from tucradio.org] I've listened to this over and

CLIMATE CHANGE: The Evidence &
THE SOUND OF DISAPPEARING
The sound of disappearing glaciers
is not the sound of raging torrents,
or of thundering cascades.
It is the faint murmuring sound
of a thousand rivulets and rills
flowing ceaselessly, day and night,
day and night. with each turn of the Earth:—
a thousand more.
