NASA satellites reveal the world's thickest glacier is melting 80 years ahead of schedule

it is one of the thickest known alpine glaciers in the world,

So not the worlds thickest glacier, though what do you expect from the Daily Mail.

“We thought the mass balance at Taku was so positive that it was going to be able to advance for the rest of the century,” said Pelto. “A lot of times, glaciers will stop advancing for quite a few years before retreats starts. I don’t think most of us thought Taku was going to retreat so quickly.”

Nothing about 80 years.

On the plus side a story about climate change in the Daily Mail that is not dripping with conspiratorial denier nonsense is a change.
