New Study Of Himalayan Glaciers
April 30, 2011 Leave a comment
The idea that the Himalayan glaciers have been melting at an unprecedented rate because of man-made global warming is unsupportable. This new study finds that many Himalayan glaciers are stable or even growing.
Essentially, it provides a better understanding of some of the factors influencing glacier melting. Global warming proponents have the tendency to attribute retreating glaciers to rising temperatures alone. But, as others have noted, they ignore soot, precipitation, debris etc.
“A new study published in the scientific journal Nature Geoscience has concluded that the claimed melting of the Himalayan glaciers, trumpeted by the United Nations as “proof” for catastrophic global warming, does not match the evidence. Instead, the researchers found that many glaciers in the Himalayas are expanding or stable.
Noting that their study corrects “erroneous statements in the fourth report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change,” the authors say that their results show “that there is no uniform response of Himalayan glaciers to climate change.” ”
