Awesome, Brian.

Last December I visited the Perito Moreno Glacier at El Calafate during a tour of Argentina and Chile.  The glacier is about 250 km2 in size.  At the front it is quite noisy and one regularly hears sounds like gunshots as the ice cracks.  At intervals of about twenty minutes, towers of ice tumble into the lake.  The glacier bisects Lago Argentino, causing the water on the one side to rise well above that on the other side.  Once in about four years it ruptures, the water carving a spectacular arch through the ice.

This is one of the only glaciers that is growing in size at present.

The one who came to fix our lounge window (a cricket ball mishap) was quite obese, but I don't know whether or not he was still growing.

Being obese, did he move glacially? Or set a cracking pace?  Wink

He certainly sweated a lot, a possible indication of a warming trend.

But of course!  Good job, sir:  Plumber’s bum, amply mediated by the observer’s embarrassment, is the real cause of AGW!

An Andean piper with an icy temperament and a glass tube fetish?  Nope, bummer’s plum it is — and that curious exothermic mixture of sweaty look-aside discomfiture and hotly suppressed amusement.
