Melting mountain

 
Last Updated: Saturday 04 July 2015

Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest mountain, might lose its all-year ice snow by 2015 due to climate changes. This warning was issued by Greenpeace, an international pressure group. "The snow you see now might disappear in 10-20 years," said Greenpeace campaigner Joris Thijssen. According to him, Kilimanjaro's case was not unique and the same phenomenon was happening in the Himalayas, Peru and Alaska (www.planetark.com , November 9, 2001).
