Nature photography, political rants, and Martyman laughs from the ten-time award-winning author Marty Essen

Tropical Berg, Ronald F’ing Reagan

Marty’s photo of the day #2244: Today’s photo is dedicated to the 2,239 square mile iceberg that broke off of Antarctica earlier this week. Scientists have named the iceberg A68, but since global warming is melting Antarctica at an alarming rate, I suggest that we start naming giant icebergs after those who have contributed the most to cooking our planet. And since Ronald Reagan ripped the solar panels off the White House in 1986, beginning more than 30 years of Republican global warming denial and—more importantly—obstruction on preventive action, I propose that we rename A68, and call it “Tropical Berg, Ronald F’ing Reagan” instead. It has a nice ring to it. Don’t you think?
