Going, Going, Gone
The home of the Kea is near some of the world's few advancing glaciers. These steep mountain glaciers advance partly because heavier than usual snows at high altitude build up the neve ice mass. It is often pointed out by the naysayers that the ice thickness on the great Greenland ice sheet is currently growing. This is a natural result of the increased precipitation that results from climate change. These people also like to point out that sea levels have not changed that much. That's right. The ice hasn't melted yet. But it is melting.
