With the loss of snow and ice, we are also running the risk of losing much of our fresh water, currently being held in massive reserves as glaciers. As these glaciers recede, so too do our precious reserves of fresh water. Cold matters and we must find ways to cool the planet and control our impact on the climate.

Protecting the spine of the Rocky Mountains will preserve crucial ecological functions.

This may well be an important defence against the future impact of climate chan …
