Abstract:

Seventy-five percent of the world's fresh water is stored in glaciers, but scientists predict climate change will cause some of the world's largest glaciers to completely melt by 2030. What effect will this have on our daily lives, especially our water and food supply? With global warming falling low on a national list of American concerns, it's time to take a deeper look at what could be a global calamity in the making. David Brancaccio and environmentalist Conrad Anker trek to the Gangotri Glacier in the Himalayan Mountains and visit Montana's Glacier National Park to witness the problem.
