11:02 PM | Anthropogenic climate change and glacial loss explained in a single number: 25!
A new analysis combining climate modeling with glacier dynamics has given us the first estimation of the percent of glacier loss directly due to anthropogenic climate change.  This is strong evidence and important data to understand to educate the general … Continue reading →
