the glacial area on Kilamanjaro has more to do with local changes to the weather patterns caused by deforestation and agricultural uses...Lets ask a Glacier pt II!!!!
'...This strong imbalance can only be explained by a sudden shift in climate, which is not observed in the early 20th century. Results suggest glaciers on Kilimanjaro are merely remnants of a past climate rather than sensitive indicators of 20th century climate change."

the temps at the top of K have actually been lower in the last decades, it is the lack of rejuvinating snowfall that is shrinking the glaciers there...
facts are fun!
