"What if ... ": A world without glaciers

We would have triggered so many tipping points in the climate system that it would be an uncomfortable world, says Michael Zemp, Director of the World Glacier Monitoring Service. But if we achieve the climate target of no more than 2 degrees of warming, a large proportion of the glaciers can be saved. "We have to stop just talking about it, we have to act."

"What if ... ": A world without glaciers
«Was wäre, wenn … »: Eine Welt ohne Gletscher (in German)
If there were no glaciers, what would that mean for nature and therefore also for people? And can the glacier retreat be stopped at all?
