Having a glacier like this coming flowing toward you wouldn't be any fun. Argentine Patagonia
For most people this probably isn't the most significant manifestation of global warming, but I find it fascinated and threatening.
Of course melting glaciers have more widespread consequences than increasing the risks to a few adventurous climbers. Pakistan faces high risk of both drought from decreasing melt -- and floods following sudden releases of glacial waters.
If we can't or won't stop pouring carbon dioxide into the atmosphere and fueling the "wild," we better begin to get our minds around that concept: "adaptation."
