Description

In drought-stricken Southern California, people long for rain. In the Arctic North, warmer weather and diminishing snowfall is drastically changing the environment with dire consequences. MELTDOWN: The Disappearing Glaciers is one person's enlightened journey into nature's icy wilderness. Author Gary Popejoy invites you on a tour pointing out animals, unforeseen obstacles, beauty by night and the frigid cold of the Alaskan coastline. He discusses the loss of glaciers, the rising sea levels and the alarming ramifications. You are transported not only on his physical voyage, but also on his spiritual journey that can only be gleaned by experiencing the formidable grandeur of the hidden Arctic. Gary looks forward to your company. Do join him-you'll be glad you did.

He was awarded war medals and received Buddha images of which he is most proud. While a manager at Air America, a former civilian airline operated by the CIA, he visited many Buddhist temples, photographing and interacting with monks. Gary then became production manager at Lockheed's famous Skunk Works, where the F-117 Nighthawk stealth attack aircraft SR-71 Blackbird strategic reconnaissance aircraft, and TR-1/U-2 programs were developed. A 36-year resident of Santa Clarita, California, he has been a business owner, community volunteer, president of Mad About Rising Crime (MARC), and an associate with the Anti-Gang Task Force.
