Bolivia - Dampak perubahan iklim terlihat nyata di Pegunungan Bolivia. Disana ada resor ski tertinggi di dunia yakni Chacaltaya. Namun kini hanya tinggal reruntuhan saja.

Composite image made out of two different images showing the Chacaltaya mountain top, 40 km from La Paz in different periods: on top on October 1, 1973 and at the bottom as photographed on November 9, 2009.  The renown Chacalyaya's ski run, at 5,300 meter (18,500 feet) above sea level, is now dead because of the global warming and all that remains of its past splendor is a rocky hilltop. During Chacaltaya's Golden Times in the 60's, its ski slope covered a surface of 1,6 square km, whilst the snow today covers some ten square meters only.
