Global warming causing California glacier to grow, scientists say Last Updated: Wednesday, July 9, 2008 | 2:40 PM ET CBC News
The glaciers on Mount Shasta in California are growing because of global warming, experts say.
"When people look at glaciers around the world, the majority of them are shrinking," said Slawek Tulaczyk, a University of California, Santa Cruz, professor who studied the glaciers.
But the seven glaciers on Shasta, part of the Cascade mountains in northern California, "seem to be benefiting from the warming ocean," he said.
As the ocean warms, more moisture evaporates. As moisture moves inland, it falls as snow enough on Shasta to more than offset a 1 C temperature rise in the past century.
The three smallest of the Shasta glaciers are more than twice the length they were in 1950.

Oh dear god.
At least the polar bears will have a place to live........
Leave it to nutjob professors to come up with an answer to support them no matter how crazy.
“Professor Slawek Tulaczyk”
Why don’t you get a REAL job like stuffing envelopes in the comfort of your very own home or bottling those sea monkeys for sale in the back of pulp comic books?
Boy, science ain’t what it used to be.
Global warming causes everything. It’s almost entertaining (if it weren’t so maddening) to watch “experts” link everything to global warming, even diametrically opposite weather/geological events.
This is like when my son told me that unusually cold weather was an effect of global warming. LOL
The story makes perfect sense to me. But then I have been drinking Wild Turkey 101 all day.
Perhaps somebody should tell him that the oceans are not warming?
The left has so abandoned reason they’re willing to swallow anything. I seriously don’t believe there is an ill or evil on this earth they can’t believe has some kind of sinister, political origin. The age of the internet and undreamt of technology has somehow spawned a new Dark Age of Ignorance such as the world has never experienced. It’s absolutely contrarian.
........well, what can I say?
What! And give up all those big grants that allow him to “study” the sex life of the boll weevil and spew his idiotic “findings” and call it science.
I wish we could just have a year of Wildcat rule. Someone says something that stupid, that’s a caning. “This is the first time in my life I have been proud of my country”......That’s a caning, Missy. Algore says CO2 is evil, the Earth has a fever and we are all doomed.........that’s a caning and a pre-frontal lobotomy, Mr. Roboto.
ROFLOL. Thanks for the laugh!!
The only science I trust anymore is mathematics. I think math is a science.
Slawek Tulaczyk isn’t the person I use to know.
Hmmm...California glaciers growing because of more moisture coming off the ocean...California in the midst of a drought...Hmmmm.
