Losing Paradise: Climate Change is Changing Mount Rainier- News Tribune of Tacoma


The News Tribune has done an outstanding job of looking at the various issues that climate change is having on Mt. Rainier Park. The loss of glaciers is something all of us should be very concerned about . Most of our water resources come from the snow packs and glaciers of the mountains around us. As we lose our snowpacks, because of rising temperatures and rising snow lines, we become more and more vulnerable to water shortages. These affect all the aninimals that have 10,000  years relying on a steady environment.  This article looks at rapidly receding glaciers, and how they damage the Park. The bad news is that with very little publicity, this has already been going on for some time now. Rob Carson reports. (News Tribune of Tacoma)
