Bern (dpa) - About 250 people have held a demonstrative farewell ceremony for a glacier according to organizers in Switzerland. With the memorial service, environmental organizations wanted to draw attention to the global warming, which also adds to the glaciers. The Pizol glacier 100 kilometers southeast of Zurich has shrunk so much in recent years that it will be surveyed for the last time this year.
