Abstract:     
This chapter explores the human rights and institutional quandaries posed by ice and snow melting due to global climate change. It begins by examining the contours of crisis in three different contexts: Sagarmatha (Everest) National Park, the Artic, and the California snow pack. It then provides a law and geography analysis these conflicts, with a focus on the ways in which place and space constrain resolution of them. From that base, it explores the capacity of supranational petitions to overcome these geographic constraints. In particular, it engages the institutional constraints and possibilities, as well as the complexities of the human rights project. The chapter concludes by discussing the road ahead.
