Glaciers & yaks

These are two words I have to say that I didn’t think I would ever see in the same sentence. The article is entitled “Bhutan’s Glaciers and Yak Herds are Shrinking” by Ben Orlove at Earthsky Voices.

What is even more interesting to me is that  the article itself is about  Ed Cook and Paul Krusic, both tree ring scientists, who were there only to take sample cores in the region.

So why’ll there were plenty of trees, unfortunately it seems,  both yaks and glaciers seem to be disappearing from the region.

Sincerely-
