Swiss hold funeral for Pizol glacier lost to global warming Updated: 2019-09-23 16:20:06 KST

Yet another funeral for a glacier lost to climate change has been heldthis time in Switzerland.
Sunday's so-called "funeral march" was joined by dozens of people who marked the disappearance of the Pizol glacier in the Glarus Alps.
Organized by the Swiss Association for Climate Protection, the funeral said goodbye to Pizol,which is "no longer a glacier from a scientific perspective."
Scientists say the glacier has lost at least 80 percent of its volume since 2006 due to global warning.
A similar ceremony was held in Iceland last month to commemorate Okjokull, a 700-year-old glacier pronounced dead in 2014.
