A bird's eye view of climate change

Equipped with a 360 degree camera mounted on his back, Victor recorded a bird's eye view of the Mont Blanc range as he flew over a distance of 4 kilometres on Tuesday (October 8), taking off from the Plan de l'Aiguille de Midi at an altitude of 2,000 metres.

"He (Victor) is a witness of the impact of climate change on our environment," one of the founders of the Eagle Wings Foundation who were behind the flight, Ronald Menzel, told Reuters.

Menzel said climate change had already hit hard in the Alps where temperatures had risen by 1.5 degrees, up to 2 degrees in Mont Blanc, compared to a global average of 0.8. degrees.
