Our Vanishing Glaciers

Abstract:
Mike Treder: While riding a chairlift across the face of the glacier, I had a chance to speak with one of the workers there. I asked him if he had noticed any indication that the glacier was retreating. He answered emphatically yes, and estimated that it was now 100 meters shorter than in his youth.

Though some complain that this is not an issue of relevance for a nanotechnology blog, we'll keep pointing out the consequences of rampant global warming as an example of a major problem that molecular manufacturing might help to alleviate...or might exacerbate.
