A young Aymara villagers outside her home with a view of Huayna Potosi glacier in the Bolivian highlands, some 30 km (19 miles) from 2009. In the Andes, faster-melting glaciers spell long-term risks for hydroelectric power and drinking water. The La Paz region depend heavily on the glacier on Bolivia's Chacaltaya mountain and neighboring glaciers for tap water and, indirectly, for electricity supplies. Tuesday Dec. 29, 2009.
