Still image from How Climate Change Affects Glaciers (Spanish)

Global warming is accelerating the melting of the world’s glaciers. The rate of glacial retreat has increased over the last hundred years due to global warming and the increase of greenhouse gas emissions. The increase in glaciers melting has significant impact on the water supply for many global communities. Glacial retreat also impacts world climate zones since glaciers help regulate the climate of the planet. However, scientists argue that it is not too late to reverse the effects of global warming in an effort to decrease the rate at which glaciers are melting. Chapter 11 of Air: Climate Change Series.
