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

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

@totem_made yup.. seemingly the vast majority of folks even if they believe in climate change do not understand this exact point. So much carbon is baked into the atmosphere that 2Β°c is basically the absolutely best case by 2100.

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
