South America! I could talk about the Amazon or Brazil's leadership in producing ethanol from sugar cane, but for now, the picture above is from a Patagonian glacier in the southern end of the continent. Of 50 glaciers in South America, apparently this is one of two growing robustly, all the others are shrinking. [Scoreboard: Global Warming 48, global cooling 2?] A mystery, just like life.
