Am I Really Being Snarky?


I mean, it’s the French that are reporting this and they, well they’re the French.  You remember all that stuff about Freedom Fries, right? So this little bit of news, well they probably made it up just to make the United States look bad.

One of the biggest glaciers in the southern hemisphere shrivelled by a fifth in 40 years, French scientists said on Wednesday.

The Cook glacier on Kerguelen, an island in France’s southern Indian Ocean territories, covered 501 square kilometres (193 square miles) in 1963.

Combining satellite images with other data, glaciologists from the Laboratory for Studying Geophysics and Space Oceanography estimate the glacier lost an average of nearly 1.5 metres (4.9 feet) in height each year by 2003, shedding almost 22 percent of its original

On the other hand, what if this is really true?

Nah, they’re just making it up.
