The Melting of Mount Everest

A spectacular and frightening graphic from Christina Larson over at James Fallows’ Atlantic blog: Larson posts a photograph that allows you to compare a picture of Mount Everest from 1921 with one from today.  Don’t look if you don’t want to see something sad; as Larson notes, the glacier atop Everest has lost 320 vertical feet of ice sheet in the last 90 years.  Take a look.

But climate change isn’t happening.  Nope; not at all.

  1. “… the glacier atop Everest has lost 320 vertical feet of ice sheet in the last 90 years…”

    Is this abnormal? Is this proof of catastrophic climate change? Did carbon dioxide cause this glacier to melt? What can be done? What about radiation? Is there life after death?
