Everest camp to be relocated due to melting ice

Due to global warming, Nepal is preparing to relocate the base camp on Mount Everest, which up to 1,500 people attend in the spring climbing season. Researchers say the ice that melts with warmer temperatures destabilizes the glacier, causing the dreaded cracks. The segment of the glacier that is close to the base camp, according to a study carried out by researchers at the University of Leeds, in England, is shrinking at a rate of 1 meter per year. That means it is losing around 9.5 million cubic meters of water every year. Experts indicate that there will be more and more avalanches, icefalls and rockfalls in the area.
