Witnessing the Impact of Climate Change: The Melting of the Jamapa Glacier

Americas Now

In the remote corners of the world, the impact of climate change is evident as temperatures rise and ice caps melt. Journalist Alasdair Baverstock recently spoke with scientists and observers about Mexico’s Jamapa glacier melting on Orizaba Peak. They highlighted the significant challenges posed by the glacier’s decline for communities reliant on its freshwater reserves and the profound alteration of the mountain’s landscape. Baverstock’s report serves as a reminder of the urgent need for action to preserve our planet’s natural resources for future generations.
