Global News published this video item, entitled “”Horrific:” Scientists warn glaciers in Canadian Rockies are melting at unprecedented rate” – below is their description.
A summer of unprecedented heat has not been kind to the iconic ice in the Canadian Rockies. According to researchers, glaciers are melting at a rate never seen before.
“It’s horrific to see this almost unrecognizable from one year ago, two years ago, let alone 10-20 years ago,“ said Dr. John Pomeroy, a hydrologist and director of Global Water Futures.
Pomeroy said the record-setting heat domes and wildfires this season have helped accelerate glacial melt.
“It’s not impossible to imagine if we are losing ice at the rate that Peyto Glacier is losing ice this year, our rivers would run dry in August and September,” conservationist Dr. Harvey Locke said.
As Jayme Doll reports, researchers say the glacial melt is another casualty of climate change.
