Glaciers are melting faster and faster

The UNEP and the World Glacier Monitoring Service published a report showing how glaciers all around the world are melting faster and faster, thus threatening the water supplies of hundred of millions of people.

The report then noted that “the average annual melting rate of glaciers doubled after the turn of the millennium.” This scary finding should trigger global action to prevent the worse from occurring.
