Climate Change and the Andes
Posting from the Amazon is a bit of a challenge, but this story was the subject of a presentation I attended by Jean-Michel Cousteau. Cousteau avoids the emotional alarmism of much of the climate change debate, and his short presentation on the glacier retreat in the Andes was the sort of presentation that climate change skeptics need to examine in detail. His argument about the imminence of the major changes looming in Peru as a result of climate change is the best case I have heard yet about the specific negative consequences of global warming. Since the internet connections are so tenuous here, I’d appreciate pointers to supplemental information on the Andes glacier story from anyone familiar with it, via firstname.lastname@example.org.
