Himalayan Glaciers, the Tour de France, Thongs, and Climate Change

In response to my recent post about the retreat of Himalayan Glaciers since the early 20th century, Coach Bob mounts what could be one of the strongest and most heartfelt pleas not just for mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions but reversal of global-warming trends:
You can watch footage of the TdF from the 80s and note that the mtns were covered in snow back then. People on the slopes were bundled up in jackets, sweaters, and even coats. Nowadays, you see people in thongs; sadly, men, too! If for no other reason than to get men out of thongs, we've got to reverse the climatological change!!
Well said, Bob. Well said.
