1st November 2006 on the Gaumukh Glacier, Himalayas, India - activists stand in front of the Gaumukh glacier, source of the river Ganges. Their backpacks bear a message: "Climate change is killing Ganga".

Recent investigations of the Gangotri glacier, which is at 3400 meters above sea level, have found the rate of retreat has almost doubled to 34m per year, compared to between 1935 and 1971 when it was retreating about 19metres per year.

As politicians gather for the UN climate meeting in Nairobi, Kenya, people across the globe have been busy sending a clear message – we want decisive action on climate change not more hot air.

Act on climate change! »
