New Ice Age?

Mount Shasta, at 14,162 feet seems to have a mind of its own these days. Shasta has seven glaciers. The biggest is the one on the middle, Whitney Glacier. What has surprised scientists about the glacier is that if the theories about global warming are true, the glacier ought to be shrinking, but it’s not."Unlike most areas around the world, these glaciers are advancing, they are growing. Thirty percent in the last fifty years."
