    Are you trolling? One glacier is getting bigger. That's only "troublesome" because anti-science libertarians are going to spread the news to their imbecile followers, who cannot comprehend the most basic things about science, or in this case common sense (such as why it matters that MOST glaciers are getting smaller, and why it's to be expected that SOME will still be growing bigger). Like the majority of Americans apparently, a nation which recognizes neither evolution nor climate change, and makes sure politicians enforce their religious nonsense on innocent kids. Yeah, you're trolling.

    Meanwhile, most of the rest of the world's glaciers are getting smaller... :oh

    But this one's getting bigger! Therefore it overrules the effects of all the ones getting smaller, right!? :nuts

    And while we're at it, if the percentage of people who "believe" the Earth is round and orbits the sun dropped from 77 to 41, it's not going to have any effect on the shape of the Earth or the path of its orbit, just as trying to pretend climate changes isn't happening won't stop glaciers from melting or tundra from thawing. :notrust

    It just serves to illustrate how good a snowjob spin doctors have been doing distorting people's perceptions of what has been going on all around us our entire lives.

    Perhaps a more credible source is called for...

    I don't see how this goes against the theory of Climate change?

    As the climate gets more unstable certain parts of the world will undoubtedly get much colder.
