It's apparently exposing many dead bodies on Everest as well...or so they're worried it will

Gave up after endless pages of Google results regurgitating the same article, but did find this one post from NPS from a few years back:

https://www.nps.gov/dena/blogs/the-science-of-poop.htm

Note they say the poop has been tossed into crevasses and travelled down through melt water for the last 70 odd years, hardly a recent or pending phenomenon. They were also conducting a 4-year poop melt (awesome), the results of which seem highly relevant to the possibility raised in these recent articles.

Can't find any follow-up posts sadly.
