"If you are melting glaciers from high latitudes--in Alaska, Greenland, or Iceland--you move mass away from the pole, toward the equator, which slows the Earth down," said Jerry Mitrovica, the study's lead author and a Harvard...

    Slaughter in Fallujah 'will not make US wobble' By Alec Russell in Washington (Filed: 02/04/2004) Washington vowed yesterday it would not "wobble" in its determination to succeed in Iraq as the nation absorbed, shuddered over and then put to one side the horrific images of brutalised and burned bodies of four civilian contractors.
