“Want to See Climate Change? Come With Me to the Mont Blanc Glacier”
Glaciers aren’t static, they are like rivers of ice. They flow, they grow, they shrink. They even can flood valleys, depending on the temperatures and snow each season. They vary a lot from one year to another. But the Mer de Glace has never shrunk as rapidly as it has in the last 15 years. There can only be one cause, says Luc Moreau, a glaciologist at Grenoble University, who has studied the Mer de Glace for many years.
