The Melting Himalayas

The importance of the Himalayan Range in controlling global temperatures have been well known, but not enough is being done to actually monitor it on a regular basis, providing reliable data to help find ways and means to save this planet.

Was relieved to see an article come up on the BBC website based on a conference done by ICIMOD highlighting this problem... hopefully this will raise awareness.
