    'BUENOS AIRES, Argentina — Argentina's Perito Moreno glacier is one of only a few ice fields worldwide that have withstood rising global temperatures.

    Nourished by Andean snowmelt, the glacier constantly grows even as it spawns icebergs the size of apartment buildings into a frigid lake, maintaining a nearly perfect equilibrium since measurements began more than a century ago.

    "We're not sure why this happens," said Andres Rivera, a glacialist with the Center for Scientific Studies in Valdivia, Chile. "But not all glaciers respond equally to climate change."'
    ROFL... says the "Glacialist" whose trying to report the facts while holding onto their job... by trying to explain the inexplicable... That Ice in one part of the planet is immune from "RISING GLOBAL TEMPERATURES"...

    ROFL... bad news girls... turns out the evidence is proving that the planet is not warming after all...

    Pay no heed to those rogue glaciers. They are radicals that refuse to get with the program. Heathens ! the whole lot of them.

    Very nice, i was just there. Perito Moreno is the ONLY glacier that does not RECEDE.

    Perito Moreno is for the time being a STABLE glaciar. It is not an ADVANCING glacier.

    Now that i have capitalized some central words, maybe it well get through.

    Here is the list of glaciers that are growing in Norway.

    NORWAY
    Ålfotbreen Glacier
    Briksdalsbreen Glacier
    Nigardsbreen Glacier
    Hardangerjøkulen Glacier
    Hansebreen Glacier
    Jostefonn Glacier
    Engabreen glacier (The Engabreen glacier
    is the second largest glacier in Norway. It is a
    part (a glacial tongue) of the Svartisen glacier,
    which has steadily increased in mass since the
    1960s when heavier winter precipitation set in.)


    Norway's glaciers growing at record pace. The face of the Briksdal glacier,
    an off-shoot of the largest glacier in Norway and mainland Europe, is growing by an
    average 7.2 inches (18 cm) per day. (From the Norwegian daily Bergens Tidende.)

    Perhaps we should submit their names to the CIA

    thank you for the source. i will check it later. so far i found it was not telling the truth about the perito moreno. the title of the thread and the articles is misleading also. what else is new?

    You are welcome. There is also a growing glacier on Mt St. Helens.

    Hi Pubilus:

    Let me give you guys a clue: Shrinking glacier mass (north or south poles) cause cold water runoff to 'decrease' over a period, until the circulating oceanic currents (map) slow down and warm water is cut off from heading north 'and' south. The ocean currents slow down and the warm water cannot reach the southern extremes and the ice does not melt and the ice sheet starts to 'grow,' which reduces the melting ice again for the cycle. Therefore, a period of global warming creates the conditions for the slowing of the ocean currents, until we see the ice begin to grow on the poles; which is happening right now. Eventually the cold water runoff capacity will increase and equalize and the ice caps will once again begin shrinking to speed up the ocean currents and the cycle will begin again.

    GL,

    Terral

    i checked your source some more.

    i tried to find some facts on this page.

    it links to itself, and the rare links to off-side url are dead, at least the first 3 i checked. the guy could not even link out correctly to wikipedia.

    iceagenow is a text book example of a bad source. it is not even funny bad, it is boring bad.
