GLOBAL WARMING : THE WORLD IN EVER GROWING CRISIS - in zero to cursory nods and  solutions, amounting to nothing more than sound and fury, signifying nothing.

HIMALAYAN GLACIERS ARE MELTING twice as fast now as they were before the turn of the century, according to a new study that relied on recently classified Cold War-era satellite imagery.

The study, which appeared in Science Advances last Wednesday, is that latest indication that    climate change is eating the Himalayan glaciers, threatening water water supplies for hundreds of millions of people downstream across South Asia.

''This is the clearest picture yet of how fast Himalayan glaciers are melting over this time interval,  and why,'' said lead author Joshua Maurer, a doctoral candidate at Colombia University in New York.

Scientists combed 40 years of satellite observation spanning 2,000 kilometers [1,243 miles] across India, China, Nepal, and Bhutan, and found that the glaciers have been losing the equivalent of foot-and-a-half [45 centimeters] of ice each year since 2000.

Many of the 20th century observations came from recently declassified US spy satellite imagery.

The figure is double the amount of melting that took place from 1975 to 2000. Past research has found similar trends, but the latest work is bigger in its geographic and historic scope.

It concluded that rising temperatures are the biggest factor. though temperatures vary from place to place, average temperatures were one degree Celsius [1.8 degrees Fahrenheit] higher between 2000 to 2016 than they were between 1975 and 2,000.

Other factors the researchers blamed were changes in rainfall, with reductions leading to reduce ice cover, and the burning of fossil fuels which lead to soot that lands on snowy glacier surfaces, absorbing sunlight and hastening melting.

''It shows how endangered [the Himalayas] are if climate change continues at the same pace in coming decades.,'' said Etienne Berthier, a glaciologist at France's Laboratory for Studies in Geophysics and Spatial Oceanography, who was not involved in the study.


A separate study also published on Wednesday found : ''Greenland's ice sheet may have completely melted within the next millennium if greenhouse gas emissions continue at their current rate.

The Greenland ice sheet holds the equivalent of seven meters [yards] of sea level.

''If we continue as usual, Greenland will melt,'' said lead author Andy Aschwanden, a research associate professor of the University of Alaska Fairbank's Geophysical Institute.

It is the most recent warning about warming in the world's coldest region.

''What we are doing right now in terms of emissions, in the very near future, will have a longterm impact on the Greenland ice sheet, and by extension, if it melts, to sea level and human society,'' Ascwanden said.
