Climate Change Melts Kilimanjaro's Snows

While Stephen Harper and other political dinosaurs continue to question the scientific evidence of global warming, satellite photos show definite evidence.

From mile-high Naro Moru, the locals have watched as the great glaciers of Mount Kilimanjaro have retreated into shrunken white stains on the rocky shoulders of the 16,897-foot peak. The ice on the summit, which formed more than 11,000 years ago, has dwindled by 82 percent over the past century with massive melting over the last 20 years.

NASA photos show the steady decline of the glaciers that once covered the mountains summit.

Newsday

Cheer up. I mean really, the worst could happen is extinction of the human race, is that really such a bad thing?
