  1. That is interesting, but I am wondering where you found the pictures. Is there a link to the original site, with more information?

  2. Hi, this was an email I received that was doing the rounds a few months ago. It came from a presentation given by a UN representative, but I have no more info than that unfortunately. Anyone else have any more information?
