“The last five-year period of the 20th century has been characterized by an overall tendency of continuous if not accelerated glacier melting,” says the World Glacier Monitoring Service (WGMS) 1995-2000 edition of the Fluctuations of Glaciers report, complied with the support of the UN Environment Programme (UNEP).”The two decades [from] 1980-2000 show a trend of increasingly negative balances with average annual ice thickness losses of a few decimetres,” it adds. “The observed trend of increasingly negative mass balances is consistent with accelerated global warming.”Analysis of repeated inventories shows that glaciers in the European Alps have lost more than 50 per cent of their volume since the middle of the 19th century, and that a further loss of roughly one fourth the remaining volume is estimated to have occurred since the 1970s, the report states.”With a realistic scenario of future atmospheric warming, almost complete deglaciation of many mountain ranges could occur within decades, leaving only some ice on the very highest peaks,” it says.Since the initiation in 1894 of a worldwide programme for collecting standardized information on glacier changes, various aspects involved have changed “in a most remarkable way,” the report notes.Concern increases that the ongoing trend of worldwide and fast if not accelerating glacier shrinkage at the century time scale is of non-cyclic nature, there is definitely no more question of the originally envisaged ‘variations périodiques des glaciers’ as a natural cyclical phenomenon, it states.”Due to the human impacts on the climate system (enhanced greenhouse effect), dramatic scenarios of future developments – including complete deglaciation of entire mountain ranges – must be taken into consideration,” it stresses.”Such scenarios may lead far beyond the range of historical/holocene variability and most likely introduce processes (extent and rate of glacier vanishing, distance to equilibrium conditions) without precedence in the history of the earth.”

Kolkata: The Trinamool Congress on Saturday hit back at outgoing Governor K N Tripathi for his comment that Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s appeasement policy had adversely affected the social harmony of the state.Trinamool Congress secretary general Partha Chatterjee wondered why Tripathi did not say this earlier. Next Governor Jagdeep Dhankar will take oath on July 30. “Wasn’t it an attempt to score brownie points? That’s why we (TMC) had said before that the Raj Bhavan has turned into a BJP party office. This has now been proved to be true,” Chatterjee said in a sharp comment. Tripathi had differences of opinion with Banerjee on several occasions regarding various issues during his five-year tenure in the Raj Bhavan.

Any way this observation by him won’t glorify the chair of the Governor.” Tripathi, who has had several run-ins with the Chief Minister, said Banerjee has the vision and power to implement her decisions but needs to keep a check on her sentiments and exercise restraint.
