Climate Change Hits Rivers
The world's great rivers are drying up at an alarming rate, with devastating consequences for humanity, animals and the future of the planet. More than half the world's 500 mightiest rivers have been seriously depleted. Some have been reduced to a trickle in what the United Nations will this week warn is a “disaster in the making”. Global warming is endangering even the rivers that have largely escaped damming. Serious water scarcity is going to be one of the major manners climate change exhibits itself, even kills.
