Vanishing glaciers,

Klaus T. 15°

Interested in the effect of climate change upon the world's glacier landscapes? How fast is the ice really Melting? Based on current research we have ascertained some of the following figures: In Uganda the glaciers of the Ruwenzori Mountains will be gone in 2025, In Tanzania the top of Kilimanjaro will be gone in 2018, and if the current rate of warming persists, scientists predict the glaciers in Glacier National Park (Montana, USA) will be completely gone by the year 2020.

Project Pressure is one non-for profit organisation looking to document, archive and share glacial history before it is too late. If this is of interest to you watch our video:

interesting idea... it's useful to have a reference or living museum or registry of what the glaciers were like "how" compared to times in the future.
