Seattle Times– ” Another glacier scientist, Mauri Pelto, said in a blog post that more recent satellite imagery taken in the fall of 2022 suggests those two glaciers are now gone, too. (They’ve broken into patches, he told KUOW, which reported that all three glaciers are effectively extinct.) Pelto has been measuring Cascade glaciers every summer now for 40 years. Seven years ago I profiled him in a column that said that due to rising temperatures, his glacier project had turned him into a sort of “town crier of decline.”
