Italy’s Mont Blanc Glacier Could Collapse As Ice Rapidly Melts, Scientists Warn

The Italian side of Mont Blanc glacier is at risk of collapsing due to increased ice melt linked to climate change, scientists and local officials warn. If the popular hiking spot collapsed, 250,000 cubic feet of ice could launch down the mountain, the report found. “If you’ve ever been to Walt Disney World, there’s the Epcot Spaceship Earth, you know that golf ball structure. Imagine four of those,” Horodyskyj says. “That’s how big this volume of ice is.”
