The Wider Image: A father and son's Ice Age plot to slow Siberian thaw 
In one of the planet's coldest places, 130 km south of Russia's Arctic coast, scientist Sergey Zimov can find no sign of permafrost as global warming permeates Siberia's soil. As everything from mammoth bones to ancient vegetation frozen inside it for millennia thaws and decomposes, it now threatens to release vast amounts of greenhouse gases. Zimov, who has studied permafrost from his scientific base in the diamond-producing Yakutia region for decades, is seeing the effects of climate change in real time.

An industrial building that was destroyed when the permafrost thawed under its foundation is seen in the town of Chersky, Sakha (Yakutia) Republic, Russia, September 13, 2021. Global warming is thawing swathes of the world's permafrost, threatening to release vast amounts of greenhouse gases as everything from mammoth bones to ancient vegetation that have laid frozen inside it for millennia defrost and decompose. Scientists say the emissions could eventually match or even exceed the European Union's industrial emissions due to the sheer amount of decaying organic matter that is locked inside.

Used plastic candle containers are piled up in a yard before they are decomposed at Plastkom's factory in Jesenice, Slovenia, November 6, 2017. Plastkom, a Slovenian candle-recycling company that is one of the few of its kind in Europe, decomposes about 1,400 tonnes of candles per year and exports most of the material to Germany. Company director Mojca Korbar says recycled materials include paraffin, metals and plastic. Plastkom, based in the city of Jesenice and employing 14 people, was established in 2010 and has since doubled its annual output of recycled candles. Staunchly Catholic Slovenians use about 6,400 tonnes of candles a year, mainly for placing on family graves, especially on All Saints Day on Nov. 1 and at Christmas and Easter. The Slovenian Court of Audit says Slovenia's government should do more to reduce the number of candles people use and educate them on the environmental impact of discarding melted wax.

Women work at Plastkom factory in Jesenice 
Women work at Plastkom factory in Jesenice, Slovenia, November 10, 2017. Plastkom, a Slovenian candle-recycling company that is one of the few of its kind in Europe, decomposes about 1,400 tonnes of candles per year and exports most of the material to Germany. Company director Mojca Korbar says recycled materials include paraffin, metals and plastic. Plastkom, based in the city of Jesenice and employing 14 people, was established in 2010 and has since doubled its annual output of recycled candles. Staunchly Catholic Slovenians use about 6,400 tonnes of candles a year, mainly for placing on family graves, especially on All Saints Day on Nov. 1 and at Christmas and Easter. The Slovenian Court of Audit says Slovenia's government should do more to reduce the number of candles people use and educate them on the environmental impact of discarding melted wax.

In early afternoons, on a hill near famous Larung Wuming Buddhist Institute relatives and onlookers gather for sky burials in which bodies of deceased people are offered to vultures to prey upon it. Such burials are practiced by some Tibetans and Mongolian in China as an extreme type of Buddhist's "self-sacrifice almsgiving". It is believed that feeding vultures with decomposed corpses of relatives on top of a mountain is a respectful way to pay tribute to their passed-away beloved ones. Picture taken October 31, 2015.
