I keep a reaonsable eye on the media (although not so much on the useless NZ media) I am left wondering why it took me 3 days to learn of this from the British media.
No one seems to think twice about this event if the person who photographed it links it with climate change.
Makes me remember when there was a huge iceberg that had calved off Antarctica a few years ago. That was treated as a huge bit of fun and people were taking tours out to see it.
But then I am perplexed generally at human beings and their infinite capacity for deflection and denial.
Force of nature: Breathtaking footage captures the moment an enormous glacier collapses sending an avalanche of ice and rock down a mountain
- Ryan Taylor was in Mount Cook National Park when rocks began to tumble
- After 30 seconds of falling, a massive block of ice dislodges and breaks up
- Chunks of rock, snow and ice thunder down mountain and flow like a river

This is the breathtaking moment an enormous glacier collapsed just inches from a skier to send thousands of tonnes of rock, snow and ice thundering down a mountain.
Ryan Taylor, 22, who was seconds away from skiing down the slope in Mount Cook National Park in New Zealand, watched as rocks beneath the ice began to break free and fall.
The amateur adventure photographer filmed 30 seconds of tumbling rubble before one large block of ice dislodged, smashing into a thousand pieces and plummeting down the mountain.
