Ice dam in Argentina will break for 1st time in winter

BUENOS AIRES (AFP) - A huge ice dam on Argentina's Perito Moreno glacier will break apart for the first time in the southern hemisphere winter, likely as a result of global warming, scientists and environmentalists said Monday.

The 60-meter (yard) high wall of ice holding back a portion of Lake Argentina breaks apart spectacularly in cycles of one year to several years, but always in summer, and is one of Patagonia's top tourist attractions.

Indeed ?

In reply to: I hope Reuters isn't wrong

I would think that your hope is that Reuters, or rather the sources Reuters quotes, is wrong. At least that is the impression I get.

I love the instant analysis.

Instant analysis is sooooo scientific, and "environmentalists" are so objective.

I don't suppose it's anything like the Snows of Kilimanjaro made famous by a Power Point presentation.

RE: Doesn?t surprise me at all that the media was incorrect

In reply to: Slight correction for the Perito Moreno glacier breakup:

The scientists put out faulty info.

The politicians put out faulty info.

The reporters report what they hear.

Why read, watch or listen to anyone?

Set up your own research facility.....

Why should anyone believe you...or anyone else?

I just believe what I believe and no one will change my mind.
