Peru Climate Change Conference

Peru Climate Change Conference

The retreating ice of the Huascaran glacier is seen in the Huascaran National Park in Huaraz, Peru, Tuesday, Dec. 2, 2014. Glaciers have lost more one-fifth of their mass in just three decades, and the 70 percent Peru’s 30 million people who inhabit the country’s Pacific coastal desert, depend on glacial runoff for hydropower and to irrigate crops, meaning their electricity and long-term food security could also be in peril. Higher alpine temperatures are killing off plant and animal species in cloud forests and scientists predict Pacific fisheries will suffer. (AP Photo/Rodrigo Abd)
