News in Review Global Warming Warning: What Yukon's Glaciers Tell Us

Global warming is having a massive impact on the planet. In October 2018, the world’s leading climate scientists met and warned that there are only a dozen years to limit global warming. They predict urgent change is needed or the planet is in peril. Much of that warming can be linked to human activity. Glaciers are barometers of climate change and their melts result in sea levels rising, causing potentially catastrophic results for coastal communities. The CBC’s Susan Ormiston met with a glacier expert in the Saint Elias Mountains in Yukon to find out what she was seeing in terms of ice field melt.
