Daniel | A glacier growing bigger?

Franz Josef could easily be a Bavarian  farmer, but it’s not in this case. Franz Joseph is the name of a small town down at one of the only glaciers in the world that is currently growing bigger and bigger. Maybe that’s because it’s located on the other side of the globe and the news of climate change haven’t made it down here yet. It’s also one of the fastest moving glaciers in the world. It grows, or better flows 70cm a day!

The sad truth is, scientists calculated that even this very ambitious glacier will lose 38% of its mass due to climate change in the next 90 years.
