Mount St. Helens, still steaming, holds the world’s newest glacier
At least 58 New Zealand glaciers advanced between 1983 and 2008, with Franz Josef Glacier (Kā Roimata o Hine Hukatere) advancing nearly continuously during this time. Read more at: phys.org...
For years, images of melting glaciers have been a big part of the climate change discussion. But there's one image released this week by NASA that shows one Alaskan glacier that might actually be growing.
Experts say that more than 120 glaciers in Pakistan’s north are stable, or even growing rapidly, in a phenomenon called the “Karakoram Anomaly”.
The extent of thick ice has doubled over the last ten years.
California’s Squaw Valley ski resort, just west of Lake Tahoe, has been buried beneath more than 58 feet of snowfall this season. That’s enough snow to completely cover a five-story building.
NASA Study: Mass Gains of Antarctic Ice Sheet Greater than Losses
The spectacles of Patagonia are truly remarkable. And there are not many places in this world, where a dream meets the reality. Located in southern America, Perito Moreno glacier is a science fiction dreamscape.
The previous Maunder Minimum occurred in the 17th century and lasted between 50 and 60 years. During this time, winters were colder: for example the River Thames, which usually flows through London, notoriously froze over. The ice was so thick that people could walk from one side to the other. However, the citizens that lived in freezing, 17th century Europe survived these cold winters, and they didn't have the heating technology that we are fortunate enough to have today. If the next solar activity minimum does affect the weather on Earth, it will not be deadly for the human race. Zharkova compared the Maunder Minimum with the one that her team predicted to occur around 15 years into the future. The next minimum will likely be a little bit shorter than the one in the 17th century, only lasting a maximum of three solar cycles (around 30 years).

Short answer, no.
Glaciers are receding across the Earth.

This is a great post.
However, you can't just go throwing a man who never poops in the first paragraph.
Now people don't care about glaciers.
They want to know more about the man who never poops.
“The trend is very bad for glaciers,” Riedel said. “In general, glaciers in the North Cascades have lost 40 percent of their ice over the past 150 years, roughly. And in the last 40 years, they’ve lost about 13 percent".
