Lake found at 3400 metres in the Alps

Alpinist Bryan Mestre took an astonishing photo at the end of June, showing a lake in the French Alps that was probably created due to the heat wave that swept Europe.

Mestre published the photo on his Instagram to bring public attention to the real, tangible effects of climate change.

“Time to sound the alarm... (...) Only 10 days of extreme heat were enough to collapse, melt and form a lake at the base of the Dent du Géant and the Aiguilles Marbrées. That I know, this is the first time anything like that as ever happened. (...) This is truly alarming [...] glaciers all over the world are melting
at an exponential speed...”

Mr. Mestre wrote on his Instagram story.

The French mountaineer took the photo ten days after a friend of his had visited the site: at that time, the area had been completely covered in snow Photo: bryanthealpinist
