New Alpine lake –the new icon of climate change

World Economic Forum represents that the lake appeared in Mont Blanc mountain may be a new indicator of global warning. On June 28, alpinist Bryan Mestre captured a concerning sight: a lake that had formed due to snow melting on the Alps, measuring about 30 meters long.

Mestre shared a photo and video of what he witnessed on his Instagram, explaining that he spotted the lake at the end of a 10-day heatwave. He wrote that only 10 days of extreme heat were enough to collapse, melt and form a lake at the base of the Dent du Géant and the Aiguilles Marbrées adding it is “truly alarming”.

In the second slide of Mestre’s Instagram post, he shared a photo taken 10 days later by Paul Todhunter. The photo, taken from almost the exact same angle, shows that the lake has already disappeared. This was done to give an idea of how crazy the climate is.

According to NBC News, Paris reached 114 degrees Fahrenheit in temperature in late June, setting a new record for the country’s hottest recorded day in history. Not only are these extreme temperatures an indication of the climate crisis deepening, but heat waves can also pose a threat to agriculture, energy use and public health.
