Himalayan glaciers not melting because of climate change, report finds


www .telegraph.co.uk

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.

So here we go, even more evidence of the man made global warming hoax. They actually lied about the temperatures in the Himalayas, overstating the average temperature by 6 degrees. Well, what do you expect from a pseudocult who's high priest is Al Gore, a man infamous for his exaggerations, falsified stories, and out-right lies. It should be over. Cap and Trade should be history. The UN's dreams of using the global warming hoax as an excuse for some grand scheme of global taxation should be in tatters. How can the masses still hold on to this fairy tale?

But now you'll start seeing the standard replies from proponents of HCGW trying to deflect this into a pollution issue instead of dealing with even more "bad" news that one of their pet issues is a hoax.

What? Are you mad?
if you can remain so blase` after all the reported activity from vulcansim, to sunspots,You sir are a coool customer.....

Though Global Warming (capital G capital W) was debunked as a driven result totally due to us,it remains some kind of fact that there are glaciers tumbling into the sea, at unprecedented sizes, as well as droughts, Floods, famines,and the rest of whats going on birds die, sos eveything else it seems.
The skies too present strange and hitherto unacknowledged dangers like the kill shot, and asteroid sollisions,new space conditions, lik the in cloud we are trvelling through which may have magnetic or other consequences...
Electric universe theory iform us of a different set of parameters which we can use to guage events,as well the science of volcanology has new knwledge too.
Every thing thats been going on, has the potential to be related to other things which taken in combination, do NOT spell a rosey futur, or even a peaceful next decade.
that the himalayas glaciers are the last to show any possible effects or they may be still expanding becausee of the loss elsewhere in the globe of those glaciers,is not an indication alls well.

I do not deny that the climate is changing. The climate has always changed, and will continue to do so for as long as the earth perseveres. I deny the garbage known as man caused global warming or what ever they call it this week in their attempt to guilt us into accepting higher taxes and more restrictive, job killing laws.

No, this is NOT evidence that man made global warming is a hoax..... This is just evidence that climate is not the only factor which decides if a glacier melts or not. That is what your article says:



The new study by scientists at the Universities of California and Potsdam has found that half of the glaciers in the Karakoram range, in the northwestern Himlaya, are in fact advancing and that global warming is not the deciding factor in whether a glacier survives or melts.

Their report, published in the journal Nature Geoscience, found the key factor affecting their advance or retreat is the amount of debris – rocks and mud – strewn on their surface, not the general nature of climate change.

Glaciers surrounded by high mountains and covered with more than two centimetres of debris are protected from melting.



As you can see, the debris , and the shadows from high mountains are the only things protecting the glaciers from melting....



Debris-covered glaciers are common in the rugged central Himalaya, but they are almost absent in subdued landscapes on the Tibetan Plateau, where retreat rates are higher.


All this article proves is that many calculations of melting glaciers are not accurate because they don't take into account debris and shadows protecting them. The article does NOT suggest EVER that global warming is not happening and not melting the glaciers, but in fact, debris and shadows are the only thing protecting the glaciers from global warming.

This topic is evidence that climate change skeptics will use data they don't even understand and grasp at straws to support their claims.

Or you didn't read the report OR you don't understand what it means because you got complete wrong idea of what is about.

Damn people that just read the headlines!
