Record #173432:

The flaw in the thaw / Fred Pearce.

Title: The flaw in the thaw / Fred Pearce.
Author(s): Pearce, Fred.
Date: 2005.
In: New Scientist. (2005.), Vol. 187(2514) (2005)
Abstract: Examines reports of shrinking glaciers around world "proving" global warming. Outlines debate over causes of Kilimanjaro's shrinking ice cover (precipitation drop, warming, etc.) and reviews evidence from other tropical glaciers of dramatic retreat and possible causes (e.g., "global" warming and El Niño intensity). Notes post Little Ice Age retreat of glaciers in Himalayas, Alps and Patagonia, and accelerated retreat in recent years. Recent inventory of 46,000 glaciers in China reported 7% ice loss since 1980. Notes counter-examples and possible causes. Discusses consequences of mountain glacier retreat, including current and future sea level change and impact on recreation. Looks at evidence from Greenland and Antarctica, of ice shelf collapse, accelerating outlet glaciers, and increased snowfall.
