    ^ Heh, Fox News

    Oops, this is kinda old, I just saw a story in National Geographic about the glaciers so I thought Fox was covering it too.
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    mm what about foxnews. in case you didnt know the website has nothing to do with the tv station. its just as liberally biased as every other news site it runs exactly the every single same story as cnn etc every single day, just AP stuff copy and paste. They have no reporters and dont write their own stuff.

    The earth, an inanimate object to most, is "unhealthy" because glaciers are retreating. This isn't science, this isn't reporting on the advance and retreat of ice fields. This borders on Gaiaism.

    I personally think that global warming is at least somewhat responsible for the horrendous hurricane seasons we've been having.

    Calling it unhealthy is indeed personification, it serves as a metaphor to illustrate the condition of the earth with respect to humans. The Earth as a planet will be perfectly fine, it's the thing that live on it that will be in trouble. Retreating ice fields are only one "symptom" to extend the metaphor.
