A lot of people are talking about climate change. I witnessed it personnally during my stay in Austria last month. We were visiting the Grossglockner glacier. A funicular carries tourists down to the foot of the glacier….well down where the glacier used to be!
From there you still have to hike for a while to touch the ice. On the way down from the valley station of the cable car you can see sign which give you the glacier position at a given year. Watch for yourself!
Here a view down to the end of the funicular. No ice visible.
What will be left here in 5 or 10 years?
