Gather your poop bags whilst you may

From Harper’s Weekly Review:

Climbers of Mount Everest will now be required to bring their poop back to base camp; “Our mountains have begun to stink,” said a local leader.

Earlier today I was at my ophthalmologist, telling his office manager about Everest’s poop problem. She didn’t believe me.

Beyond citing the estimable, if eccentric, Harper’s, I didn’t have evidence to hand her. I did suggest we all must consider how much poop, potentially deep-frozen, is up there on Everest. It isn’t a pleasant image for us lovers of nature.
