The glaciers are melting! The glaciers are melting! The glaciers are…uhhhhh…never mind.
Turns out the IPCC’s chicken little story that all the Himalayan glaciers are melting is just another exaggeration. Or fraud. Take your choice. You know, like the stats coming out of East Anglia CRU. And its claim that Antarctica is melting. And that Greenland’s ice cap is melting. And that sea levels are rising. And that the polar bears are dying. Fact is, some glaciers are retreating, but many others around the world are growing.
“But how is that possible? How can glaciers be growing when the world is warming up like a package of Jiffy-Pop in a microwave?”
Here are a dozen glaciers (or groups of glaciers) around the world that are growing almost as quickly as global warming skepticism.
  1. Himalayan glaciers are growing, not shrinking.
  2. Alaska’s Hubbard glacier. Growing. A lot.
  3. Norwegian glaciers. Growing again.
  4. Glaciers growing on Canada’s tallest mountain.
  5. North to Alaska and more growing glaciers.
  6. Glaciers are growing in California. California?
  7. A glacier is growing on Washington’s Mt. St. Helens.
  8. Glaciers are growing in France and Switzerland, too.
  9. New Zealand’s largest glaciers are growing.
  10. Russia’s glaciers are growing, too.
  11. Argentina’s Perito Moreno glacier is, you guessed it, growing.
  12. Iceland’s Breidamerkurjokull glacier. Yup, it’s growing, too.
