“Losing Paradise: Climate Change is Changing Mt. Rainier” is a wonderful piece by Rob Carson about how climate change is changing Mt. Rainier, one of the most spectacular mountains and parks in our very own backyard. As the glaciers melt at record speed, roads and access at the park are damaged. The question this article asks is: Do we continue to repair the roads? Do we try to move endangered species? Should we try to save parts of the park?
The article is a fascinating description of the impacts of climate change on our beloved mountain and throughout the Pacific Northwest. And the photographs of this stunning park included in the article are well worth viewing.
