Impacts of glacier mass loss 20.9.2017 Deccan Herald - Tuesday
RAPID SHRINKAGE Researchers have warned of an urgent worldwide need to address a broad spectrum of cascading impacts of glacier mass loss on downstream systems. In their paper, published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the authors synthesised currently available evidence and documented the profound impact on freshwater and near-shore marine systems. Glaciers cover close to 10% of the Earth's land surface but are shrinking rapidly across most parts of the world. Glacier shrinkage will alter sediment transport, and biogeochemical and contaminant fluxes from rivers to oceans. An unexpected impact of glacier shrinkage is the liberation of contaminants including emission products from industrial activity such as black carbon and associated compounds, mercury, pesticides, and other persistent organic pollutants. Though there is uncertainty in the release of these legacy contaminants from glacierised areas, their transport to downstream systems by meltwater will eventually reduce as glacial ...

 India today reaffirmed its commitment to the landmark Paris climate change agreement, saying it is willing to "work above and beyond" the pact to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, during a UN 'Leadership Summit on Environment Pact', said that India had been at the forefront of the debate on environment and development.
