Rivers of ice

Recent photos of glaciers in the Himalayas, directly comparing sites photographed 80 years ago show a stunning loss of ice over that period.

The cause, a warming climate, is evident but the effects on the hundreds of millions of people that rely on melt water for all their water are not immediately so obvious...yet equally as frightening in its impact.

Watch this wonderful narrated slideshow here.
