Greenpeace found during the past 30 years, the glaciers of the Yellow River source have shrunk by 17%. A trend that could leave the region without glaciers by the end of the century. This indicates an alarming sign of climate impact on the source of China's mother river- the Yellow River. Greenpeace is calling the Chinese Government and the world for due attention to deal with the Yellow River source disaster caused by climate change and an immediate step on reducing CO2 emissions.Locations:Asia-China-East Asia-QinhaiDate:1 Sep, 2005Credit:© Greenpeace / John NovisMaximum size:3000px X 1044pxKeywords:Climate (campaign title)-Climate change impacts-Day-Desertification-Glacier melt-Glaciers-Global warming-KWCI (GPI)-OutdoorsShoot:Yellow River Documentation Tour in ChinaFrom 1966 to 2000, glaciers in the Yellow River Source region retreated by 17% in area, causing the loss of 2.39 billion m3 of water from source of the river.
