Chilean glacier vanishing due to climate change. According to Chile’s chief water company, the Direccion General de Aguas de Chile (DGA), the Echaurren and surrounding glaciers are receding at a rate of 12 meters per year. At this rate the River Maipo, which flows from the Echaurren and provides 70% of the water to the nation’s capital of Santiago, may dry completely within the next fifty years.

Such an event would necessitate a dramatic population shift away from central Chile due to a lack of water. Our deep gratitude, Direccion General de Aguas de Chile, for bringing this important information to the public’s attention. May everyone quickly transition to the most effective and water efficient plant-based diet, to curb warming conditions and stabilize our Earth.
