Climate change: the ice is melting faster than ever

New research analyses show that world wide Gletsjers are loosing ice faster and faster. The speed in hwich the ice melts is still going up. As gletsjers are seen as one the best indicators for the situation of our climate, this is another emergency call from our planet.

Most ice is lost in Alaska and Patagonia. In Europe the Alps are loosing enormously, which is somehow compensated with growing ice in Scandinavia.
