Largest glacier in Argentina advancing

Perito Moreno

15 Jun 09 – (Excerpts) – “Argentina's Perito Moreno glacier is (supposedly) 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.”

Perito Moreno, a vast, 19-mile-long (30km) and 3-mile-wide (5 km) river of ice, is the largest glacier in Patagonia.

            Funny how each time we read about another growing glacier, it's
            always "one of the only few" that are growing.

            More than 90% of the worlds glaciers are growing, and still, each
            one is "one of the only few."

            I’d like to note that I’ve had the Perito Moreno glacier listed on this
            website for several years as one of the multitude of glaciers that are
            growing. The last time I checked, it was advancing at the rate of 7 feet
            per day.


            “Global warming? Think again,” says reader Jimmy Walter.
            “I use MyYahoo. I get 4 science news summaries and 10 regular
             news summaries. The number of global warning articles per
             day is never less than 2, sometimes as many as 10!

            This is propaganda!

            Repetition conditions people who are too stupid or lazy to read
            the truth. We are being conditioned to believe this non-sense.”
