"French scientists from the National Centre for Scientific Research and the University of Grenoble, were forced to rely on satellite images, to study the region - because much of the Karakoram range is inaccessible.
They compared observations made in 1999 and 2008 and found a marginal mass increase.
They estimated the glaciers had gained between 0.11 and 0.22 metres of ice each year....
'Overall, the impact of melting glaciers such as these on sea level rise is known to be negligible, but it does mean that there is much more to be learnt about exactly how the world's glaciers will respond
- to continued global warming."...
Ed. note: Translation: Even though the UN got caught making up 'scientific' data going into a climate convention, we pretend it was a one time snafu and global warming still exists because who would pass up endless government money?
