The World Loses First Glacier to Climate Change

The Okjökull glacier in Iceland is the first glacier to be lost to climate change.

It will be remembered by a plaque by researchers from Rice University in Houston.

The plaque will be placed in Borgarfjörður, Iceland and will be installed on August 18.

Scientists say that by the year 2200 Iceland will lose its over 400 glaciers.

Currently, Iceland loses 11 billion tons of ice mass every year.
