The headlines recently announcing no melting of Himalayan glaciers for the past 10 years are, no surprise, not entirely accurate or telling the whole story. That's what you get for learning your science from the popular press. The rest of the story is far more interesting. As usual, I look at the scientific paper all this hype is based on, and it comes up with something that hasn't been so widely reported.
