Another blow to the scaremongers. A new study in Nature Geoscience finds the glaciers in one out of six Himalayan areas are growing or stable:
The researchers looked at six areas of the Himalaya.
In the Hindu Kush, they found that 27% were stable or advancing, while 73% were in retreat.
In the monsoon-dominant areas,Western Himalaya 13% advancing or stable, 87% in retreat.
In the south Central Himalayas 35% were advancing or stable, and 65% were in retreat.
On the Tibetan side, the north Central Himalaya 18% stable or advancing, 83% in retreat.
In the West Kunlun Shan,21% were advancing or stable and 79% were in retreat.
In the most north-westerly area, the Karakoram, where winter westerlies greatly aid accumulation,58% were advancing or stable and 42% were in retreat.
Why do I get blank stares from the climate change warmists when I ask the simple question:
If global warming is real why are glaciers retreating significantly in only 5 out of 6 Himalayan areas?
