Tibet's temperature is rising more rapidly than elsewhere due to global warming, AFP reported. Temperatures in the region are rising at a rate of 0.3 degrees Celsius every 10 years, according to a report by the Tibet Meteorological Bureau. China's average temperature has risen by 0.4 degrees every 100 years, while average global surface temperatures rose by 0.74 degrees over the past 100 years. Tibet's climate change is viewed as an indicator for the rest of the continent. A warmer Tibet could also affect regional water supplies as glaciers melt more quickly and snow cover disappears. Rivers like the Yangtze, Ganges, Mekong and Indus all have their source in Tibet.
