Melting Glaciers Threaten World Water Supply

Mountain glaciers, which act as the world's water towers, are shrinking at ever faster rates, threatening the livelihoods of millions of people and the future of countless species, a scientist said Thursday.
Studies show that Africa's highest peak, Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, may lose its ice-cap by 2020, while the Glacier National Park in the northern United States could well be looking for a new name by 2030.

Nope, nope. No such thing. Not happening. And we have to study it some more. And it might cost jobs, or lower the price of oil, or something.
