Walter Immerzeel from FutureWater joined a panel of some of the world’s leading climate and glacier scientists. The 24 researchers, including three Nobel Laureates, issued a report today “Fate of Mountain Glaciers in the Anthropocene”
The authors of the report list numerous examples of glacial decline around the world and the evidence linking that decline to human-caused changes in climate and air pollution. The threat to the ways of life of people dependent upon glaciers and snow packs for water supplies compels immediate action to mitigate the effects of climate change and to adapt to what changes are happening now and are projected to happen in the future.
