According to research, glaciers in Switzerland have shrunk 10% in the past five years. A massive heatwave in the summer of 2019, which broke the melt records so far. Scientists came to Switzerland to do their experiments. In one year, Switzerland lost a total of 2% of their glacier volume. Since the year 1900, more than 500 glaciers in Switzerland have vanished.

Most glaciers in Central Europe, Western Canada, and the United States will be gone entirely in the second half of this century. That if the current rates of ice loss continue, according to a report released in April. Glaciers have lost over 9000 billion tons of ice between 1961 and 2016. It is a global problem that climate change is melting ice at unprecedented rates.
