How the Climate Crisis Dethroned Sweden's Tallest Mountain Peak


Last month, Iceland held a funeral for a glacier that melted due to rising global temperatures — and now, Swedes also have a glacier to mourn. As reported by The Guardian, the highest mountain peak in Sweden has been dethroned due to a glacier at the top of the mountain melting, now making it only the second-tallest mountain peak in Sweden. The reason? Climate change — specifically, the planet's temperature rising as a result of human activities. 

The mountain peak in question is the southern peak of Kebnekaise, the tallest mountain in Sweden. Kebnekaise's northern peak is generally about a meter shorter than the southern peak, but now, the northern peak has claimed the top spot.
