An exhibition on melting of the glaciers in the mountains.
The exhibition "We won the land" is extended with a new section that draws the historic lines onwards until today.
The sound of melting ice is what meets you when entering the exhibition, and the same sound meets you again when entering "How many tons?".
The topic is the melting of the majestic glaciers in the mountain range Jotunheimen.
The glaciers have grown and decreased many times since the last Ice Age. Man-made changes in the climate make them change faster than ever, and during this century they may disappear totally.
From historic photographs compared to new ones from 2019, one can see the changes and how the glaciers have decreased.
The exhibition shows short movies that tell about how a warmer climate can affect life in the future, and what can be done to meet these challenges.
Press pictures show happenings that have affected history from 1994 when the exhibition "We won the land" opened, and until today. The pictures tell about war, destruction and unsolved problems, but also hope and reconciliation. The exhibition "How many tons?" is produced by Norsk fjellsenter and Norges vassdrags- og energidirektorat.
