Alpine Glacier Melting Expert: Only half of them will be left by 2050.

As a result of global warming, the area of ice sheets and glaciers in many parts of the world has declined sharply. Experts estimate that only half of the Alpine glaciers will be left by 2050. According tomedia reports, since August, Europe continued to high temperatures, France, Italy, Spain and other countries have exceeded the maximum temperature of 39 degrees. Experts have warned that the Planpinglacier glacier on Mont Blanc, the highest peak in the Alps, is melting, a piece of about 500,000 cubic meters of melting ice could fall at any time, and surrounding residents have been evacuated.

According to the Alpine Centre for Ecosystem Research, temperatures in the Alps rose by 2 degrees Celsius during the 20th century, twice as much as recorded in the northern hemisphere.

In fact, scientists issued a similar collapse warning last year, which they believe is the result of unusual lying temperatureincreases, and predicts that the number of glaciers in the Alps will probably be only half by 2050 if greenhouse gas emissions continue to grow at this stage.

Mont Blanc is the highest peak in the Alps and the highest in Western Europe, at an altitude of 4,807 meters, meaning “silver peak” in French, on the French-Italian border. Mont Blanc is high in terrain, affected by the west wind all year round, and is rich in precipitation. Winter snow, summer does not melt, snow, glacier development, about 200 square kilometers for glacier cover, downhill, the northwest slope of the French side has the famous Med glacier, the east slope of Italy side has Miaj and Brunva and other large glaciers.
