Glacial Watch


Turbulent blizzards, Everest avalanches, and devastating flooding in Kashmir have brought the Himalayas into the global media spotlight. Glacial melt due to rising temperatures caused by increased carbon trajectories will cause avalanches at high altitudes, flooding downstream, and desertification when the water runs out.


Often called the “third pole” because there is more snow and ice there than anywhere else in the world outside the polar regions, the Himalayas run through Afghanistan, China, and six other countries, all which share tense borders populated by multi-ethnic peoples. This region has possibly the highest concentration of diverse culture and religion on the planet. If the glaciers melt and water runs out, it would be a formula for disaster.
