Traffic on Mount Everest
This article is timely, and represent, maybe, our race's newest phase of exploitative tourism. The extreme traffic on Everest, the lack of skill of those simply purchasing a package experience that should be a privilege of the skilled, the demographic of the dead, now naive tourists, business men and students, rather than mountaineers, the rubbish and litter strewn around the camps. This is not a respectful way to treat nature, people need to examine their actions and motives.
