Himalayan glacier melt affecting two billion people. Studies have only begun but are already revealing that the Himalayan glaciers are melting, and may lead to a significant rise in the water flow of four major river basins including the Ganges and Yellow Rivers.

And overflow of rivers in the next few decades would then be followed by a severe water shortage, affecting the two billion people who rely on the source of water. May Heaven grant us with wisdom and immediate action to protect our natural resources and the balance of our delicate ecosystem. We pray that Mother Nature continues to sustain life for many more millennia.
