Climate Change Forces New Eurpoean Borders

Swiss and Italian authorities plan to redraw their mutual border due to the rapid disappearance of centuries old glaciers, the long-held delineation between the two countries.

Zurich’s daily newspaper, Tages-Anzeiger reports that after 50 years of stability, the border must be now reset.

In an unprecedented decision, authorities plan to establish a border that is both set and mobile, to accommodate for further glacial deterioration caused by climate change.

Authorities say citizens of Switzerland and Germany will not be effected by the change. A bill currently being examined by the foreign commission of the chamber of deputies in Rome will establish a new border in the high mountains on what is government property.
