Satellite data from #Sentinel  showed glaciers shrinking after a heat wave in mid-June. The Sabbione Glacier, which feeds into a hydropower reservoir, lost about 35% of its snow cover from June 10-18. The glacier continued to lose snowpack throughout the summer as heat persisted.

The remains of an Indian army soldier have been found more than 38 years after he went missing on a glacier at the highest point along the heavily militarized contested border between India and Pakistan in Kashmir, officials said Wednesday.

So, NASA just discovered a huge hole in Thwaites Glacier in Antarctica. If we’re unlucky, this glacier alone could lead to as much as 10 feet of sea level rise over the next 100yrs—flooding every coastal city on Earth and grinding civilization to a halt.

A huge cavity has formed under the Thwaites Glacier in Antarctica. If it collapses, sea levels could rise by another two feet in a matter of decades! This is just one glacier. We must cut carbon emissions quickly by investing in cleaner energy sources.
