Climate Change causes Immense Canadian River to Dry Up in Just Four Days
A major river that originated from one of the largest glaciers in Canada vanished last year in only four days. In new research, scientists describe this event as a dramatic illustration of the extreme changes global warming can have (and is having) upon Earth’s geography. The disappearance of the Slims river, unexpected and abrupt, is the first case of “river piracy,” in which the flow of one river is suddenly diverted into another, that has ever been observed.
