TWO-THIRDS OF GLACIER ICE IN THE ALPS 'WILL MELT BY 2100'

HALF OF THE ICE IN THE MOUNTAIN CHAIN'S 4,000 GLACIERS WILL BE GONE BY 2050 DUE TO GLOBAL WARMING ALREADY BAKED IN BY PAST EMISSIONS, THE RESEARCH SHOWS.

AFTER THAT, EVEN IF CARBON EMISSIONS HAVE PLUMMETED TO ZERO, TWO-THIRDS OF THE ICE WILL STILL HAVE MELTED BY 2100.

Melting glaciers contribute to rising sea levels, but almost three-quarters of this water comes from Greenland and Antarctica.
The European Alps, which run through France, Switzerland, Italy, Austria and Germany, contribute less than 1%.
Two-thirds of the ice in the glaciers of the Alps is doomed to melt by the end of the century as climate change forces up temperatures, a study has found.
