Asias greatest threat?: Melting Glacier melt in B.C. at 'shocking' 2 days ago   04:43

DW News
The Himalayan Mountains are also known as the world’s ‘Third Pole’. Glaciers in the Himalayas and the Hindukush mountains store the most ice in the world outside the Arctic and the Antarctic. Scientists say the Glaciers are melting and the effects could threaten the home and livelihood of over 2 Billion people. The affected could be at risk of flooding, electricity shortages and food insecurity. In some of these areas, these events could peak in the next 30 years. This dire warning is part of a new study released by the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development. It claims that one-third of these glaciers will melt by the end of the century even if current efforts to reduce climate change succeed. And if they fail, they will melt by two-thirds.

Build a giant freeze to keep the glaciers frozen. But on the other hand you can plant lot more rice and fish at the same time.
