Peru Indians' farming life at risk

Experts say global warming will melt water-providing glaciers by 2050.

    In Peru, Quechua Indians work the land in the same way as the Incas did centuries ago.

    But climate change might force them to change their practices in the future.

    Experts say most of the glaciers which provide these communities with water will melt away by 2050 because of global warming.
