Photo Friday: Miracles on Arid Lands

Some of the most unanticipated glaciers in the world are siting atop Iran’s mountains. Natural glaciers serve as a major fresh water resource in this arid country. Glacier recede plays a crucial role in affecting Iranian water supplies in urbanism, industries, and agriculture. Hence, Project Pressure was instigated by Klaus Thymann in 2008 as a non-profit organization, which documents the world’s vanishing glaciers in order to raise awareness of climate change, inspire action and participation. Klaus recently took a journey to Iran for Project Pressure. Here we share some photos of Klaus in Iran during the expedition.
