Nature photography, political rants, and Martyman laughs from the ten-time award-winning author of "Cool Creatures, Hot Planet," "Endangered Edens," and the "Time Is Irreverent" series.

Winter should behave like winter

Marty’s photo of the day #2765: Having grown up in Minnesota, I enjoy the cold and snow of winter. Now that I live in Montana, all I ask of winter is that it behave like winter and stay below 32 degrees. But, thanks in large part to more than 30 years of Republican obstruction and denial, winters that behave like winters are becoming less and less common. Today the local forecast calls for 48 degrees. The steep mountain road leading down from our house will most likely become a hazardous layer of water flowing over ice by this afternoon. Weather does not equal climate, but the warming trend is undeniable. With that in mind, I need a cold weather photo for today. How about this iceberg I photographed off the coast of Antarctica?
