Europe's Melting Glaciers: Aletsch

BETTMERALP, SWITZERLAND - AUGUST 23: Hiker and yoga enthusiast Karin Bittel, who was participating in a guided tour across the Aletsch glacier, stands on her head on the ice of the glacier on August 23, 2016 near Bettmeralp, Switzerland. The Aletsch glacier, today approximately 23km long and up to 900 meters deep, is Switzerland's largest glacier and is shrinking rapidly. While glaciers across Europe have been receding since approximately the 1870s, the process has accelerated since the early 1980s, a phenomenon many scientists attribute to global warming. The European Enivironmental Agency predicts the volume of European glaciers will decline by between 22% and 89% by 2100, depending on the future intensity of greenhouse gases.
