Recent research by the climate analysts suggests that Mount Everest by the end of this century would be free from its glaciers. Located in Nepal, Mount Everest is reported to be the tallest mountain on the earth with the recorded height of 29,029 feet. The tallest mountain is situated on the border of Nepal and China. According to the rough estimate, it is estimated to be 9000 feet taller than the highest peak of North America.

and may not ,LOL
They may even grow.
+ side. A lot of bodies will finally be recovered from those evil glaciers.
But the good news is, the vast majority of people alive today will be dead by then, so nobody will need to say “sorry” when the glaciers are still there on 1/1/2100
They can’t even predict tomorrow’s weather forecast.
The UN is dispatching Sherpas to paint the glaciers green, even as we speak.
So everyone, QUICK!! Buy a Prius!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now, damnit, NOW!
And get those damned incandescent light bulbs outta your house as well!
If it saves just ONE Polar Bear....!!!!!!!!!
Even if they melt, so what?
Where I currently live was once under several miles of ice and snow. The glaciers receded and on the whole, that was a good thing.
Right. And I’ll tell my proctologist to watch out for flying purple monkeys.
And monkeys may fly out of my butt.
(Unseemly dancing and self-high-fiving...)
The glaciers which covered much of the Midwest United States also disappeared long long ago so it doesn’t really surprise me if other glaciers are slowly moving toward the same fate.
The sovereignty of the USA may be gone by 2016!
So if the present +0.2C increase since the beginning of this century which has been holding steady for the last 17 years continues, weren’t these glaciers pretty much doomed anyway? Or are they adding more special sauce to their predilections?
Meanwhile, the Sahara is becoming more fertile.
Sure they may. Or they may be the same, or they may be more. Nobody knows.
One thing’s for sure though: Humans will have no affect on whatever may be.
If the story is true we need to hunt all the polar bears and eat them to prevent them from suffering.
