Remember all the dire warnings about how growing carbon emissions were warming the environment and causing the glaciers to melt, seas to rise and people to become mean. Well, that turns out not to be the case, at least about the glaciers in the Himalayas:
Researchers have discovered that contrary to popular belief half of the ice flows in the Karakoram range of the mountains are actually growing rather than shrinking.
The discovery adds a new twist to the row over whether global warming is causing the world’s highest mountain range to lose its ice cover.
It further challenges claims made in a 2007 report by the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change that the glaciers would be gone by 2035.
You mean the ice flows are growing rather than shrinking!?!?! Al Gore could not be reached for comment.
