K2 amongst those regions reported to have lost glacial ice

The BBC is reporting glacial loss on a number of high altitude places. They studied photos from Everest from 1920 to now and this showed a marked loss of ice on the nearby glacier.

They also said that the same was true of K2. They said there was conclusive evidence that there is less ice than many years ago.

The Asia Society said the following, “”If the present rate of melting continues, many of these glaciers will be severely diminished by the middle of this century.”
