blankets for glaciers

in italy the most threatened glaciers [by global warming] are being covered in an insulated fabric to keep them from melting in the summertime.  this has proven to work tremendously – in previous uses the covered portions retained 60% whereas uncovered areas lost up to five feet.

i am attracted to giving human needs to non-humans and love the idea of making a blankie for a glacier. [and it being useful]  photo © SNappa2006 flickr
