A group of tourists touring the Upsala Glacier in Argentina were lucky to see a huge iceberg breaking into the lake.
They were traveling in a type of boat called catamaran.
One of the tourists recorded what happened and posted it on YouTube.
It happened in March but the video was posted in May.
On March 4, 2012 a massive ice wall at the Perito Moreno glacier near the city of El Calafate, southern Argentina falled into the Lago Argentino; please click here for the photos.
Here is the video of the Argentina’s Upsala Glacier iceberg breaking:
I think the iceberg melted because of the global warming even though some scientists do not blame global warming.
Global warming may caused lots of places to sink into the sea; please click here for: ’100 Places To Go Before They Disappear’, A Book By Gaute Hogh.
The book was about the effect of global warming that can make some places disappear.
Global warming makes the earth hotter and hotter and sea level rises up because of ice melting at the North Pole and South Pole.
In Zahara de la Sierra, Andalusia, Spain, they get less and less rain and the place becomes drier and slowly turning into a desert; like bad drought in Kenya were killing plants and animals.
I think that it is a very good book for all of us to read, so that we can do our parts to stop the global warming and heal the world.
It will very sad to see all the beautiful places disappear.
I wish I can have a copy of ‘100 Places to Go Before They Disappear’ 🙂
The unrest in Bangkok between the Red Shirt and the government is getting worse.
Bangkok is the capital of Thailand.
At least 36 people died in the clashes so far.
A lot of people were injured.
The Red Shirt protesters set fire to tires, fired homemade rockets and threw gasoline bombs at soldiers.
Things like this is bad because it can start a war.
We can have a peaceful protest to fight for something important.
But we should not use violence to get what we want.
Setting fire also causes air pollution and global warming.
Parts of buildings were damaged and the rubble also caused more pollution.
This is a man-made disaster.
I hope they can find other ways to get what they want without destroying the Earth.
People need to learn that it is very important to save the Earth.
These open fire caused air pollution and global warming!
People like to do things that harm the Earth.
Wars, cutting down trees, littering, polluting and forest fire are some of the things that harm our environment.
Cutting down trees especially on the hillside caused landslide that will push down new trees and that tree will push down other trees; so more and more trees will be pushed down.
I think it is like playing domino; when we push down one tile, it will push down another tile and more tiles will fall down.
Littering can cause flash flood when the rubbish block the drain; the flood will damaged buildings and plants and caused water pollution and leave rubbish everywhere.
Industrial wastes from factories cause water pollution, air pollution and toxic rain.
Cars, trucks, buses, ships, boats aeroplanes and other vehicles caused air pollution.
In the cities there are lots of buildings and vehicles but not much trees.
And we are also using too much fuel energy.
We cause global warming and global warming causes disasters that destroy the Earth.
Yesterday was Professor Muhammad Al-Mahdi’s birthday.
He was born on April 5, 1943
He died on 29 April 2006
He was a very clever and good man.
He was the founder of Khalifah Institute.
He wrote books on how to be a a good person.
Being a khalifah means to be a good person.
To be a good khalifah we must:
Make ourselves good.
Help others to be good.
To make ourselves good we must be a good person, work very hard, study hard, do not play too much, do not spend our time on empty fun, do not hurt other people and be good to everybody around us.
We must help other people to be good people and not fighting with each other.
We must stop the wars, stop littering, stop the global warming and stop making other human disasters.
Brother Muhammad taught me not to watch stories with empty fun, bad value and fighting like SpongeBob, Doraemon, Ultraman, Spiderman, Mr. Bean and others.
We should watch stories like Barney and Friends, Dora The Explorer, Go Diego Go, Sesame Street and others that teach us good value and other good stuffs.
I love Brother Muhammad very much.
I am sad because he died.
Tonight we celebrated Earth Hour by switching off the lights, television sets, computers, fans and other electrical appliance from 8:30pm to 9:30 pm.
Anyway I switched on a little light 🙂
I was very scared if the burglars would come to my house if it was too dark, especially my father was out for a meeting.
Earth Hour started in 2007 in Sydney, Australia.
Earth Hour is to save our earth by saving the electricity.
Switching off the electricity shows that we want to fight the global warming.
Global warming makes the world gets hotter and hotter.
It caused the ice on the mountains and in Alaska and other places in the north and south of the earth to melt.
This is the disaster!
I hope a lot of people will switch off the electricity during Earth Hour.
I wonder if my father was having his meeting in the dark during Earth Hour ❓
