(ANSA) – AOSTA, 23 JUL – “We must do everything in our power to reverse the course, otherwise the consequences can be truly catastrophic”. This is said by the general president of the CAI Antonio Montani, on the sidelines of the ‘Climbing For Climate’ event, promoted by the network of universities for sustainable development and by the CAI and which this year was hosted in Valle d’Aosta.

“There were two days of discussion with researchers and scientists, who once again stressed that the situation is dramatic, and I don’t use a random term”, continues Montani. The participants in ‘Climbing For Climate’ climbed the glaciers of the “summit of Europe” to launch an appeal for the strengthening of the fight against the climate crisis, the ecological crisis and the loss of biodiversity, with particular reference to alpine environments.

In the two days that ended today, the academic world and the CAI took part in an excursion to Lake Miage, at 2,040 meters above sea level, and then stayed overnight at the Torino refuge. Today they observed the Giant’s Glacier on the Col des Flambeaux as a roped party.

“This morning at 5 am outside the refuge, at 3,600 meters above sea level it was raining – explains Montani -, the temperatures were very high and today, in the presence of the Grand Capucin, we witnessed a large landslide”.

According to the general president of the CAI, there are two lines to follow: “The first is to ask politics for actions agreed at a global level. The second, on the other hand, concerns all of us and the way of experiencing the mountains. day but think of reaching it by public transport, and then consider spending the night in the mountains “. There must be “a paradigm shift: if we just complain because the great of the earth don’t do enough we are wrong, each of us must do something and this is the time to do it”. (HANDLE).
