Maude Barlow lectured at the Cochabamba Climate Summit about ‘climate change, glaciers and human rights’.
One of the topics was the deliberate destruction of Andean glaciers for mining projects by Canadian companies.
Maude stated:”The issue of glacier melt is where climate justice and water justice come together. Water abuse is hurting the climate, and climate injustice is hurting water.”
