Ikonische Gletscher der Welt werden bis 2050 verschwinden

By Jordi Bou

November 4, 2022 - Einige der weltberühmten Gletscher werden bis 2050 verschwinden - auch unabhängig vom Klimawandel und der Erderwärmung, wie die UN berichtet.

The report, which makes projections based on satellite data, comes as world leaders prepare to meet in Egypt for the COP27 climate change conference.

Glaciers in a third of UN World Heritage sites will melt within three decades, a UNESCO report found.

About 18,600 glaciers have been identified across 50 UN World Heritage sites. They represent almost 10% of the Earth's glacierised area and include some of the world's best-known glaciers, such as the Dolomites in Italy, the Yosemite and Yellowstone parks in the U.S. and Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania.

The remaining glaciers in the other two thirds of UN World Heritage sites could be saved, but only if the world limits global warming to 1.5C, the authors say.
