📷 People in Iceland gather to commemorate the loss of 700-year-old glacier Okjokull.
Mourners gathered for the funeral of Okjokull, Iceland's first glacier lost to climate change.
In 2014, the Okjökull was declared dead after dwindling from over 5 square miles to a mound of “dead ice.”
On August 18, 2019, scientists will be among those who gather for a memorial atop Ok volcano in west-central #Iceland . The deceased being remembered is Okjökull—a once-iconic #glacier that was declared dead in 2014. #NASA #Landsat
This is one of the most poignant signs I've ever read in my life, to be installed at the former Okjökull glacier in Borgarfjörður, Iceland by scientists and the Icelandic Hiking Society. Our children should not forgive us if we fail. [via ] @danjamstewart
