When Glacier Park was established in 1910, it had about 150 glaciers. Today, with human activities spewing carbon dioxide and methane as if we were intent on re-creating Earth’s ancient atmosphere, a warming climate has reduced the number of glaciers to 25, and those are shrinking three to four times as fast as they were just half a century ago. The last one is expected to vanish by 2020. Douglas Chadwick
