Which of the following descrXXXiptions of glaciers is true? 冰川下面的描述中,哪個是真的? (A)Glaciers are the main water source for the Nile.          冰川是尼羅河的主要水源。 (B)Melting glaciers may helphydroelectric dams run at maximum power for a long time.        冰川融化,可能有助於在很長一段時間的最大功率為水電大壩運行。 (C) As temperature increases, glaciers are getting built up.          隨著溫度的升高,冰川越來越建立。 (D)Melting glacierswill result in the decline of sea levels.        冰川融化將導致海平面的下降。 ***************************************************************************** The melting waters of the Ruwenzori Mountains feed the headwaters of the Nile. Here, for hundreds of thousands of years, people have depended on the river for basic necessities: water, transportation, farming, and fishing. Now, the glaciers of the Ruwenzori are melting so rapidly that they will soon disappear. Within the next twenty or thirty years, most glaciers in Africa and South America will vanish completely. The shrinking of the world’s glaciers will have massive consequences for communities that depend on ice melt. In the short-term, these consequences may appear beneficial. For example, extra water from glaciers means that hydroelectric dams will run at maximum power. In the long run, however, the melting of earth’s glaciers could be catastrophic. Today’s extra hydroelectric power has been stolen from the future. Communities with ample power now may have none after the glaciers have melted, and the loss of ice will increase sea levels worldwide. Temperature change and a lack of snow is causing the retreat of the glaciers. Glaciers are no longer getting built up during the snowy winter months, so they are no longer able to maintain their size over the long run. Unless there are some changes in the current rate of global warming, the glaciers are essentially doomed.   48 Which of the following descrXXXiptions of glaciers is true? A.
