What is being done to reduce the rate at which glaciers are melting? This is a simple enough question, and one that many people have wondered in recent years. The answer, on the other hand, is not so simple. The question of preserving glaciers is a question of reducing – or stopping – climate change. And this question is a rather difficult one to answer, as there is not any guaranteed method to reduce the effects of climate change. In fact, it’s still not universally accepted that human-induced climate change exists, let alone is something that can be slowed, stopped, or reversed.
Melting glaciers mean more than warmer temperatures and rising sea level. Studies focused on the rate at which glaciers are melting provide us with more than just statistics.
