Himalayan Glaciers Not Melting Because of Climate Change, Report Finds

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.'

  1. Hmmmmm, that's all very well, but tell that to the people who have lost everything in the floods all around the world.

    Whether it is climate change, global cooling or global warming (who cares what it's called), there IS something wrong with the weather and it IS affecting people all over the world.

    We don't all have our heads in the sand, and we are not all stupid.


Thanks for your comment it is much appreciated.
