Asia's Glaciers to Shrink by a Third by 2100, Threatening Water Supply to Millions

Asia's mountain glaciers will lose at least a third of their mass through global warming by the century's end, with dire consequences for millions of people who rely on them for fresh water, researchers have said. This is a best-case scenario, based on the assumption that the world manages to limit average global warming to 1.5°C (2.7°F) over pre-industrial levels, according to a study in the journal Nature. The Asian high mountains, the new study said, were already warming more rapidly than the global average. A global temperature rise of 1.5°C would mean an average increase in the region of about 2.1°C, with differences between mountain ranges—all of which will warm by more than 1.5°C. The Hindu Kush mountain range would warm by about 2.3°C and the eastern Himalayas by 1.9°C, the study forecast.
