One of the most poignant climate moments of 2019 was a funeral for ice: an August ceremony in Iceland for the country’s Okjökull glacier. As can be seen in these @NASA satellite images, the glacier declined dramatically between 1986 and 2019.
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
