A Trek to Africa’s Last Glaciers

Here is a very recent story on the Mountains of the Moon which will give you a good idea of what the conditions are like today.  The article is by Tom Knudson who writes about natural resources and the environment for the Sacramento Bee. Over the years, his reporting has been singled out for numerous journalistic honors, including two Pulitzer Prizes and a Reuters-I.U.C.N. Global Environmental Media Award. In a previous article for Yale Environment 360, he wrote about the impact of the biofuel boom on Indonesia’s rain forests.
