Video: retreating Mer de Glace, Mont Blanc’s largest glacier

di

The video by Bertrand Delpierre illustrating the retreat of the Mer de Glace glacier in the Mont Blanc massif.

Mer de Glace, the largest glacier in the Mont Blanc massif, continues its relentless retreat. A walk down the steps from the Montenvers station highlights all too clearly how much the snout has melted and retreated in recent decades due to global warming, with signs indicating the annual height it used to reach. For those who can’t make their way to Chamonix, check out this short directed by French photographer and director Bertrand Delpierre for the non-profit organization Pax Arctica; the comparison with the past is obvious and painful.
