image for Kilimanjaro To Vanish In Next 20 Years
The Kilimanjaro Hotel will have to close

The snows capping Kilimanjaro, Africa's tallest peak, are shrinking far more rapidly than ever before, and could vanish altogether in the next 20 years, says a US study.

There was worse news, however, when it was also claimed that Kilimanjaro, itself, is also on the point of disappearing.

The reason for this, say those conducting the study, is that Kilimanjaro is made entirely of snow, and when the snow melts, Kilimanjaro - which means 'Nothing Lasts Forever' in Swahili - will be consigned to slush.

The study at Princeton University concluded that, if Kilimanjaro melts, snowball fights in Africa will no longer be possible, unless, of course, the boffins have got it all wrong again.
