The Wider Image: The thaw of the Third Pole: China's glaciers in retreat
Glaciers in China's bleak, rugged Qilian mountains are disappearing at a shocking rate as global warming brings unpredictable change and raises the prospect of crippling, long-term water shortages, scientists say. The largest glacier in the 800-km (500-mile) mountain chain on the arid northeastern edge of the Tibetan plateau has retreated about 450 metres since the 1950s, when researchers set up China's first monitoring station to study it. The 20-square kilometre glacier, known as Laohugou No. 12, is criss-crossed by rivulets of water down its craggy, grit-blown surface. It has shrunk by about 7% since measurements began, with melting accelerating at a record pace in recent years, scientists say. Equally alarming is the loss of thickness, with about 13 metres (42 feet) of ice disappearing as temperatures rise, said Qin Xiang, the director at the monitoring station.

Japan may have been seen as a leftfield choice to host the Rugby World Cup but if you want a sense of the country's long love affair with the game, you could do worse than to get along to Tokyo's Fuwaku club. The dozens of players running, passing, mauling, scrummaging and crashing into one another in the shadow of the Aquatics Centre being built for the 2020 Olympics are unremarkable in all but one thing - their age. Fuwaku, founded in 1948, is one of approximately 150 Japanese clubs that stage competitive, full-contact matches for players over the age of 40 and the oldest man on the park is sprightly 86-year-old lock Ryuichi Nagayama. As in rugby clubs around the world, the attraction is only partly the love of playing the game which originated in an English private school and can look to the uninitiated like legalised brutality.

Ryuichi Nagayama, 86, Fuwaku Rugby Club's oldest active player, makes green tea after having a breakfast at his house in Tokyo, Japan, May 18, 2019. As a doctor, Nagayama is well aware of the risks involved in playing a high impact sport at his age and the club's website gives detailed advice on health precautions and even links to a life insurance company. "Since I joined Fuwaku Club, I have broken ribs many times and broke my collarbone too," Nagayama said. "I can't stand not playing. That's it... This may sound strange, but I have lost my wife years ago and now I would say I don't mind dying playing rugby." REUTERS/Kim Kyung-Hoon SEARCH "RUGBY VETERANS" FOR THIS STORY.
