The winter drought that Tenerife suffered from 2011-2012 has killed much of the vegetation high on Mt Teide, the highest mountain in Spain. Steve Andrews aka The Bard of Ely explains why this situation reminded him of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta in Columbia where the Kogi live and where plants were dying high on the peak due to lack of water. He explains about the Kogi Mamas (tribal shamans/leaders) and their belief that where they live is the Heart of the World and how this was shown in the BBC documentary From the Heart of the World made by Alan Ereira. The footage for this Mt Teide video was filmed by Lizzy Piffany in January, 2012.
The drought could well be caused by Global Warming/Climate Change or possibly as a result of La Niña.
