West Glacier, Mont. (AP) — Montana’s Glacier Park may have to start looking for a new name. Naturalists say that 50 years from now it’ll be glacierless unless there’s a big change in Montana climate. The giant glaciers which gave the park its name are slowly melting away. Some are gone already. Every winter blizzards shriek and swirl around the mountain peaks and replenish the glaciers with new snow, but summer’s hot sun takes away more than winter adds.
