Glaciers are shrinking at record rates and many could disappear within decades, the U.N. Environment Program said Sunday.
Scientists measuring the health of almost 30 glaciers around the world found that ice loss reached record levels in 2006, the U.N. agency said.
UNEP warned that further ice loss could have dramatic consequences particularly in India, whose rivers are fed by Himalayan glaciers.
Just because it is a little colder than usual in Canada and US, it does not mean that global warming is not a fact. Oh, that’s right. If it’s not happening here, then it’s not happening anywhere. Isn’t that the motto of the western world?
