The nation commemorates the once huge Okjokull glacier with a plaque that warns that action is needed to prevent climate change.

Iceland has marked its first loss of a glacier due to climate change, as scientists warn that hundreds of other ice sheets on the subarctic island run the same destination.

As the world recently marked the warmest July ever recorded, a bronze plaque was mounted on a bare rock in a ceremony in the arid terrain that was once covered by the Okjökull glacier in western Iceland.
