Surprise, surprise. Turns out that “only a few hundred of the roughly 200,000 glaciers worldwide have been monitored for a decade or more.”
“A team of French glaciologists has recently confirmed that glaciers in the Karakoram Range between northern Pakistan and western China “on average have remained stable or may have even grown slightly in recent years,” says this article by Rob Waugh.
The glaciologists used satellite data to study the area, which accounts for 3 percent of the total ice-covered area in the world, excluding Greenland and Antarctica.
“A sensitive ranging system allows researchers to measure the distance of the two (GRACE) satellites down to as small as 1 micron- about 1/100 the width of a human hair – and to calculate ice and water amounts from particular regions of interest around the globe using their gravity fields.”
“The researchers found that the ice had actually increased in thickness by 0.11 (plus or minus 0.22) meters per year between 1999 and 2008.”
This flies in the face of UN claims that Himalayan glaciers would melt to a fifth of current levels by 2035, leading to sea level rises and drought.
Previous estimates of ice loss in the high Asia mountains have ranged up to 50 billion tons a year, according to the University of Colorado Boulder University’s Professor John Wahr.
“The results in this region really were a surprise.”
‘One possible explanation is that previous estimates were based on measurements taken primarily from some of the lower, more accessible glaciers in Asia and were extrapolated to infer the behavior of higher glaciers,’ said Wahr.
‘But unlike the lower glaciers, many of the high glaciers would still be too cold to lose mass, even in the presence of atmospheric warming.’
Around the world, melting has been overestimated. Earth’s glaciers and ice caps are shedding roughly 150 billion tons of ice annually – up to 30 per cent lower than predicted.
Only a few hundred of the roughly 200,000 glaciers worldwide have been monitored for a decade or more.
Read that again! “Only a few hundred of the roughly 200,000 glaciers worldwide have been monitored for a decade or more.”
The doomsday scenarios used by climate extremists to destroy our freedoms are based on measurements of only a few hundred out of roughly 200,000 glaciers!
The report was published in Nature Geoscience.

“This will, of course, be the leading headline in all media!” says Linda.
NOTE: I posted an article about the Karakoram Range back in February, saying that the region had lost no ice during the past ten years. The difference is that this study says the region has actually GAINED mass.

Good news! A publisher in Italy has now translated Not by Fire but by Ice into Italian.
