Nothing To See Here, Move Along

Global warming is about to unleash some bad shit on some folks in Bhutan, one of the few countries I would like to visit someday.
Unfortunately, Punakha's residents are not alone in this picturesque Buddhist kingdom in having the threat of death and destruction hanging over their heads like an environmental sword of Damocles. Because of Earth's rising temperatures, at least 25 glacial lakes in Bhutan are at risk of overflowing and dumping their contents into the narrow valleys where much of the country's population lives.
