A group of the world's leading glaciologists recently met in Peru to discuss the alarming speed at which the Andean glaciers are melting. As a major source of drinking water and hydro-energy for millions of residents, the rapidly melting glaciers could severely affect up to 70 percent of the Andean people by the year 2025. The Peruvian government is now looking into ocean water desalination as a way to help mitigate these effects.
Your warning is much appreciated, respected glaciologists. Blesssed be our swift steps to conserve resources and address the root causes of climate change, for the survival of all the world’s citizens.
