By 2100, Global Warming Could Melt a Third of Earth’s ‘Third Pole’

Apparently at least a third of the glaciers in the Hindu Kush Himalayan region will likely melt by the year 2100.

????The Hindu Kush Himalaya Assessment said that this would happen even if the world met the Paris climate agreements most strict global warming target.

????The report says temperatures could jump around 8 degrees Fahrenheit by the end of the century, according to The New York Times.????And this melting would come with massive floods and much lower contributions from glaciers to important river systems. ????Which would mean that the water supply for over a billion people would be put at risk.

????The 2,000 mile region has been called the planet’s “Third Pole” by climate scientists.

????Researchers say that global warming will transform the icy peaks of the HKH into bare rocks in less than a century.
