Kilimanjaro Ice Cap Update

According to scientists, now global warming is not responsible for the decreasing glaciers atop Kilimanjaro. You can read their findings here. I couldn’t care less about the reasons but they say the shape of the ice has something to do with the decline and also decreased snowfall. I am not a scientist so this really doesn’t make my day one way or the other. The point is that the glaciers are melting and receding and you should climb the mountain as soon as possible to experience the best views I have ever seen atop the summit of Africa.

Sharing is caring!


  1. How does the shape of the ice make it melt faster?

  2. I have no idea, why would the shape of the ice affect it-I can’t even come up with a good guess on that one

  3. The answer would be surface area. Same reason smaller ice cubes melt faster in your Jack and Coke. Large surface area and a progressively smaller mass. You can thank Mr. Wizard from when I was 9 for that one.

  4. Hahaha…What color are the koalas ears

  5. John of Cloverdale, WA, Australia says

    Has it melted yet? Heavy snow for the next 6 days at – 7 degrees.
