Open letter to Senator Mark Begich: 'Are you aware that glaciers are growing in Alaska?'

6 Jul 09 Dear Senator Begich, As someone who loves my country, I urge you to vote NO on the upcoming Control-and-Tax bill, a bill purportedly designed to fight “global warming.”

What global warming? Senator Begich, are you aware that glaciers are growing in your own state? Yes, glaciers are growing in Alaska. According to the US Geological Survey (USGS), glaciers are growing in Alaska for the first time in 250 years. In May, Alaska’s Hubbard Glacier was advancing at the rate of seven feet per day – more than half-a-mile per year. And in Icy Bay, at least three glaciers have advanced one-third of a mile in one year, said Chris Larsen, a scientist at the Geophysical Institute at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. Senator Begich, I wish you would ask the USGS for a list of glaciers in Alaska, and ask them to tell you – honestly – which ones are growing. I have a feeling that there are more glaciers growing in Alaska than any of us have been told. My fear is that that there is a giant cover up going on, especially given the fact that glaciers are also growing in California (Mt. Shasta) and Washington (Mt. Rainier, Mount St. Helens, and Glacier Peak). Every time I read about another growing glacier, I’m told that it’s “the only glacier in the world that is bucking the global warming trend.” But that’s not true. Perito Moreno Glacier, the largest glacier in Argentina, is growing. Pio XI Glacier, the largest glacier in Chile, is growing. Glaciers are growing on Mt. Logan, the tallest mountain in Canada. Glaciers are growing on Mt. Blanc, the tallest mountain in France. Glaciers (230 of them) are growing in the Western Himalayas. Glaciers are growing in Norway. Recently, all 50 glaciers in New Zealand were growing. Glaciers in Greenland are growing thicker. And contrary to what we’ve being told, the Antarctic Ice Sheet is growing, not shrinking. More than 90 percent of the world’s glaciers are growing, but all that we hear about are the ones that are shrinking. Not only are glaciers growing around the world, temperatures are dropping precipitously. Are you aware that low temperature records were set in 46 states during the month of June? According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), some 538 low temperature records were set in June alone. This temperature drop is not restricted to the United States. According to Dr. Roy Spencer, climatologist and former NASA scientist, satellite data for June shows that the earth has cooled an astounding .74°F since former Vice President Al Gore released his propaganda piece “An Inconvenient Truth” in 2006. Again, I urge you to vote NO on any Control-and-Tax bill. As author of the book Not by Fire but by Ice, and publisher of, I can provide corroboration of the facts that I am presenting to you today, and am including links (below) to do just that. Respectfully,
Robert W. Felix
