The sons of Hillary and Tenzing speak out about climate change: "Believe us, it's a reality"
By Cahal Milmo and Sam Relph

Fifty-four years after Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay became the first men to scale Everest, their sons have said the mountain is now so ravaged by climate change that they would no longer recognise it.

Interesting article about the effect of global warming on the himalaya region, including the fact that the base camp has actually 'sunk' in elevation since Sir Edmund and Tenzing's days.

Regardless of which side of the "global warming' debate you fall upon, there are physical changes happening in our world which cannot be denied. This is but another example.
