Crisis on high – ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

This extraordinary piece about the Third Pole in China has been circulated by https://radicalecologicaldemocracy.wordpress.com/   So I take the liberty of forwarding it– very sobering, considering that, following that tragic farce of Paris, still nothing substantive is actually being done to reduce emissions.

This quote from the above is especially alarming simply because this will only accelerate the process of melting:

‘But the scientists are discovering another factor that is causing the big melt: pollution from vehicle exhaust and coal burners is now making its way up to the region.

Black carbon particles and dust land on the glaciers and absorb the sun and heat, unlike the white ice that reflects it.’

And he says the current models for global climate do not really know how to take account of the third pole. The implications are obvious.
