Most Himalayan Glaciers Retreating; 21% Stable or Expanding, Survey Finds – ScienceInsider.

“A new study by the Indian Space Research Organization and the Geological Survey of India in Kolkata reports that although 21% of India’s Himalayan glaciers are showing no increase in melt rate, the majority are receding. The pattern is a worldwide phenomenon and part of a natural cyclic process, according to a statement from India’s environment minister, Jayanthi Natarajan. Her statement surprised many observers in that it did not attribute the glaciers’ retreat to climate change.”
