Rwenzori snowcap melting...

Bundibugyo in the news again. Not much good news comes out of here.
It seems that the AFP news service recently visited our little corner of the world. An article entitled "Lifestyle melts away with Uganda peak snow cap" popped up on our Google news page, complete with interviews of local Bakonjo folks who are witnessing the warming effects. The article mentions that the Rwenzori glacier has shrunk from 217 hectares to only 19 hectares in the last century.
At that rate, they estimate it will be gone by 2023.
