    While the glacial water may not be large in the overall percentage, it is critical in it's timing. For that is the water that agriculture on those rivers depends on in the last part of the crop cycle.

    Global warming's impact on Asia's rivers overblown : Nature News

    Nevertheless, the study concludes that climate change will reduce water supplies enough that by 2050, declines in irrigation water are likely to reduce the number of people the region's agriculture can support by about 60 million — 4.5% of the region's present population.

    Model uncertainty
    One caveat, Immerzeel notes, is that climate models don't fare well at simulating the effect of warming on Asian rainfall. "There's still a lot of research going into the effect of climate change on the behaviour of the monsoon," he says.

    I see. You find the prospect of 60 million people in starvation status amusing.

    BullSpit!

    WHERE does water GO???

    UP, into our cloud layer, to be redistributed.

    DOWN, into our aquifers, to be purified.

    We don't LOSE it, it doesn't just DISAPPEAR,

    ever how much is here?

    Is STILL going to BE here.

    Perhaps in different areas, but that's how CYCLES work, and how the Earth, itself, is replenished.

    We bleed out THIS tract? We use the next one.

    The water is going to "move."

    It's a protection mechanism for the earth, so that NO PLACE should be "sucked dry" of the nutrients in the soil by human beans that think they can plant, harvest, replant, harvest, ad infinitum.

    Even if we WERE able to "run out" of water??? The flippin' asteroids sailing around and many of this solar systems planets could provide more than enough for ALL of our world.

    Speaking of the which,

    we should probably make provisions for sea life with the ACTUAL "gold" we've got,

    aka : SALT.

    What's going to happen to them?

    And they're mammals, too.
