Video: The Snows of the Nile

This is a fantastic short film that introduces viewers to the Rwenzori Mountains of Uganda, a series of 5000 meter peaks that rise up from the African plains. These peaks were once covered in some of the few equatorial glaciers that exist on the planet, but those glaciers are in rapid retreat as climate change and global warming impact the environment there. In the short documentary, two researchers travel to the "Mountains of the Moon" to investigate what is happening.

Thanks to the Adventure Journal for sharing.
