Global warming is all about location. Here in Acre Brazil we are worried that the shifts in North Atlantic tropical water temperatures are producing more frequent and more devastating droughts. With at least 2 months of the dry season to go, the rivers are already at a 35 year low and the sunsets are obscured by the widespread fires.

Far away on the other side of the planet in the tiny and happy Kingdom of Bhutan, people fear that melting glaciers will produce too much water, a veritable "tsunami from the sky."

Our places are distant and our experiences are different but we're all in the same boat.
