MELTING WORLD: The Fate of America’s Alpine Glaciers


When author Christopher White hiked around Glacier National Park in 1976, no one had heard of global warming. The Park boasted nearly 40 pristine alpine glaciers. Since then, Chris spent five years (2008-2013) exploring the fate of mountain glaciers in the Rockies and around the world. In Glacier National Park, only 25 glaciers remain. Forecasts suggest these last icefields will vanish in ten year’s time, with cascading impacts to wildlife and forests downstream. This intimate event with Chris features excerpts from his book, The Melting World: A Journey Across America’s Vanishing Glaciers, and tales of his personal journey to document the impact of America’s vanishing ice.
