The Missoulian reports on the first annual Montana Lakes Conference . . .
The inaugural Montana Lakes Conference began here Wednesday night with a mix of good news and bad news.
The good: It may still be possible to preserve half of the world’s remaining glacial ice.
The bad: If humanity remains on its current path of high carbon dioxide emissions, it can expect “large-scale “deglaciation” in coming decades, and a thicket of accompanying environmental and economic problems.
