The word Himalaya means House of Snow, being the second largest icecap outside the polar regions. But, it’s melting at the fastest rate in human history. One-third of the Himalayan glaciers is projected to melt away by the end of this century due to climate change, threating the supply of water to nearly 2 billion people across South Asia. We discover how water became a major flash point between India and Pakistan, witness the playing of the Siachen glacier conflict , and go undercover to observe the proliferation of water thieves in Karachi.

About the series: The World Health Organization puts the number of deaths from climate change at 250,000 by 2050. Droughts, wildfires, floods, and catastrophic rains only lead to one question: Has the politics of climate change finally reached the tipping point? We investigate Australia’s coal conundrum, Pakistan’s Himalayan meltdown and Brazil Amazonian battle. Along the way, we meet people and activists trying to find ways to tackle the biggest issue of the 21st century. A combination of bad policies and political apathy is speeding up climate change. Have we reached the tipping point? Can it be reversed?
