The Athabasca Glacier at the Columbia Icefield in 2018 vs 1918. Along the pathway to the glacier @parks.canada has marked the retreat, separated by decade. The gaps get larger and larger as you move through the 20th century and climate change accelerates. #ActOnClimate

So sad 😕 incredible shots though dude 👌🏼
It's both sad and beautiful. It's scarier to realize that the effects we're feeling now are the compounded effects of emissions from approximately 3 or 4 decades ago, and that even if we were to cut all emissions today the effects would accumulate for several more decades. We really don't realize just how much we're harming our planet.
Would probably be wise to stop driving tour busses over it dozens of times a day....just an idea
Wow Stephen this is an incredible shot. It is shocking what we are doing to our planet. Thank you for spreading this message.
Beaut of a shot Stephen 👍🏻 really love the bnw also
Perfect visual evidence
Ya. My moms commented on that too. As a kid every Sunday afternoon they’d go here.
Can really spot the ablation zone, end of summer melt line and accumulation zone. Less and less snowfall year on year equals a negative mass balance, would take MANY decades and ALOT of snowfall for this glacier to build up again
Great one!!! 😃👏🏼👏🏼
