Another glacier defies global warming

Despite shedding "icebergs the size of apartment buildings," and the whole global warming thing (which of course is a hoax), Argentina's Perito Moreno glacier is still growing. (AP) Scientists don't know why the glacier, "nourished by Andean snowmelt" isn't retreating.

Further north, Mt. Shasta is home to the
last growing glaciers in the US. The mountain is lucky to receive more precipitation from a warming Pacific Ocean.

About Me

I started pound360 to channel my obsession with vitamins, running and the five senses. Eventually, I got bored focusing on all that stuff, so I came back from a one month hiatus in May of 2007 (one year after launching Pound360) and broadened my mumblings here to include all science.
