Ski the Himalayas before they are gone in 2035

Thinking of making a daring tip up to the Himalayas? Fantasizing about skiing those colossal glaciers? Well, better do it before 2035. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, there is a very real and scary possibility that the Himalayan glaciers could all be melted by then. This is no joke. Besides saying goodbye to my fantasy of skiing K2, half of all human kind could be negatively affected by this, according to CNN. The melting glaciers would cause massive flooding (actually it’s already begun), and then there wouldn’t be enough water after the flooding. Countries would wage war over control of the precious remaining water and, all in all, bad times would abound. 

This is a very real problem that necessitates a very real solution. Who’s stepping up to the plate??
