Sweden Swelters, Shrinks

Sweden’s highest peak, a glacier on the southern tip of the Kebnekaise mountain, is melting due to record hot Arctic temperatures and is no longer the nation’s tallest point, scientists said on Wednesday.

Sweden’s two highest points are a mountain with two peaks, one covered by a glacier, the other free of ice.

Last year, according to this story in English and this one in Swedish, the altitude difference between the two peaks was two meters.
