Hindu religion threatened by climate change

I see on Treehugger that apparently a shrinking glacier is threatening the very existence of the Ganges, the holiest river in the Hindu religion.

I’m not sure what the effect of the drying up of the river would have on Hinduism, but I can imagine this will get a mixed response, some will doubtless say its prophetic, others will say it could prove a turning point for India’s attitude to climate change…

Interesting.
