It's all our fault?

I imagine most of you have seen this. Due to climate change, glaciers melt and back up leaving rivers to flow on their way ---- or change they courses into totally new directions. Rivers changing courses because Nature spoke is part of Earth's history. Actually, this isn't the first river on our planet to make a drastic change of course. But this one - due to climate change - should get our attention. Maybe?

The immediate problem is not that this kind of thing sometimes happens, but how many such things are happening, how fast. Plus, of course, our population is now such that we can't simply migrate out of the way of bad weather.
