antje from Germany on climate change

The sound is like a drum roll! When I go rambling through the landscape, I can hear the distinctive sound of woodpeckers. Yet this is rather unusual in January and makes me feel somewhat uncomfortable. I hear blackbirds and tits telling me that spring is already here. There are starlings gathering out there in the fields. Shouldn’t they have already left for the South? This year they didn’t migrate at all but stayed in Germany all winter.
Climate change is already having a significant impact in the Alps, where the average temperature in the region has risen to nearly 2◦C over the past century. Glaciers have dramatically reduced in size and continue to melt. By 1980, they had been reduced to half their original size and since then another third of the ice mass has been lost. When I go hiking in the Alps, I now have to climb much higher in order to reach the foothills of the glaciers. Where they used to extend right down into the valleys, these days only debris and mud remain. Scientists predict that by 2100, the glaciers at the Zugspitze will have disappeared completely – and that, within 30 years, the snow line and the permafrost borderline will have moved 300 metres higher up the mountain
