At least a third of the Himalayan ice cap is doomed. That means there is No Hope. Those glaciers supply both india and china, and, combined, they have a population of approximately 3 billion people and growing. (about 40 per cent of the world's population). They get their water from the melting glaciers of the Himalayas, but so does everyone else in that region. The two countries already have a history of disputes over water. The populations grow, and the water diminishes.
Then, there's pakistan, too. All three of these countries have nuclear weapons. There are troubles there, as well. The indians and the pakistanis already hate each other, on the natch--and that hate ain't goin away. Now, give them cause. It wouldn't hurt if we weren't overpopulated, but, oh, well. Climate change/global warming is a ticking time bomb.

Pacific Northwest salmon are dying because of the warming waters. That sets off a catastrophic chain of ecological events. The killer whales are already starving because of this loss of salmon ((polution, over fishing, global warming). 2 minute video and link.

Gone In A Generation. This is a really comprehensive article. Global warming/climate change is here and has been doing it's damage for a generation. Forests. Floods, Fires, and Fisheries. This is a real dose of reality. Already, there's no going back. The world is changed.
