Mountains are the water towers of the world, supplying a substantial part of both natural and anthropogenic water demands 1,2 .
We conclude that the most important water towers are also among the most vulnerable, and that climatic and socio-economic changes will affect them profoundly.
Immediate action is required to safeguard the future of the world’s most important and vulnerable water towers.

Importance and vulnerability of the world’s water towers.
As I picked up my morning coffee, I scoped out the place for possible prey. A new cock to suck from a suitable guy was on my breakfast menu. I made eye contact with a good-looking 30-something but quickly realized that he was a former conquest. As he approached to say hello, I raised my hand like a traffic cop and shook my head no. He stopped and retreated, obviously disappointed. I was looking for some fresh meat. However, I was so horny and hungry for cock and hot cum that if nothing new was to my liking I would go back to the 30-something, but I had to act quickly, as always.
