So is the largest glacier in Chile. So are glaciers around the world.
Argentina’s Perito Moreno glacier is (supposedly) one of only a few icefields worldwide that is growing, one of only a few that have withstood rising global temperatures.
One of only a few.
And yet, the Juneau Icefield, which covers 1,505 square miles (3,900 sq km) and is the fifth-largest ice field in the Western Hemisphere, is also growing.
And then there are those growing glaciers in the Himalayas.
And on Mt Shasta.
And on Mount St Helens.
The list goes on.
Funny how each time we read about another growing glacier, it’s always “one of only (you fill in the blank).”
More than 90% of the worlds glaciers are growing, and still, each
one is “one of only a few.”
