This article contains an excellent, interactive picture of the glacial melt over time. One can move the split picture from before and after 1,600 years to see the effects.
Glacial ice in the Peruvian Andes that took at least 1,600 years to form has melted in just 25 years, scientists reported Thursday, the latest indication that the recent spike in global temperatures has thrown the natural world out of balance.I often wonder and worry about how the glaciers, and indeed, the world will look like 25 years from now. Because of the increasing use of fossils driven by the obsession of capitalist elites for profits (along with power which is always associated with wealth under capitalism), it seems reasonable to believe that global warming will accelerate. Because of my advanced age, I feel fortunate that I won't be around to see it.
