Italy: the collapse of the glacier linked to global warming, according to Mario Draghi

The collapse of a glacier in the Italian Alps, which left at least seven people dead and eight injured according to a new report, is linked to global warming, Italian Council President Mario Draghi said on Monday. More specifically, it was the so-called La Marmolada glacier that collapsed on Sunday.

The disaster, which occurred the day after a temperature record of 10°C at the top of the glacier, is linked to “the degradation of the environment and the climatic situation”, declared Mario Draghi on the spot, who expressed his ” support” to the families of the victims.

The similar analysis of a climatologist

This Monday already, the climatologist, Jean Jouzel, had entrusted a similar analysis to our antenna.

The specialist had thus pointed out that the “very marked warming” of which the glacier was the object at its summit was “partly responsible for the fatal detachment”.
