African Glaciers: Going, Going ...

Link: African Glaciers: Going, Going ...

A study by Taylor in Geophysical Research Letters documents that East African equatorial glaciers are melting at an unprecedented rate and will disappear in a generation due to climate change.  Some glaciers are receding by tens of meters annually, and the total area covered by ice shrunk by one-half between 1987 and 2003. With less than one square kilometer of ice remaining, the glaciers will likely vanish within 20 years.
