Melting ice may lead to starvation

Melting ice may lead to starvation

About 60 million people living in the vicinity of the Himalayas, are threatened by hunger, or at least food shortages in the coming decades. This is due, according to the scientists, the melting of ice, which entails the shallowing of rivers and drought, and consequently — a poor harvest.

However, the forecast compiled by Dutch scientists this year, less pessimistic than in 2007, when expected the hungry will be no less than 100 million people. In any case, the problem will affect the population of India, Pakistan, Nepal, China, Bangladesh and Bhutan.

Correction was introduced due to the fact that some areas in the Himalayas depend more on rainfall than on the rivers that flow down from the glacier-covered mountains.
