A melting glacier portends the future of a climate changed world

Melting Glaciers are Climate Change’s Canary In the Coal Mine

Glacier melt is the canary in the coal mine of climate change. A New Zealand study found that it is “very likely” that climate change caused the melting of 10 glaciers in New Zealand’s South Island. The researchers discovered that glacier loss was at least six times more likely to occur due to climate change since 2011 and 10 times…

Mountain Digest Highlights Wide-Scale, Varied Effects of Climate Change on Glaciers Worldwide

From discovery of frozen mummies in the Alps to a scientific expedition to Peru’s highest peak and an anomalous summer cold air vortex in the Karakoram, unprecedented changes are taking place across the world’s glaciers and high mountians.

Post-Industrial Age Black Carbon Deposits Help Accelerate Loss of Glacial Ice, Marine Ecosystem Changes

Black carbon from man-made burning of fossil fuels and biomass is helping accelerate glacial ice loss at the Mendenhall Glacier and is changing the marine ecosystem in the Gulf of Alaska, a scientific research team finds.
