    Glacier thief arrested in Chile


    Climate change sceptics have acquired a new explanation for why glaciers are retreating: it's not global warming, it's theft.
    Police in Chile have arrested a man on suspicion of stealing five tonnes of ice from the Jorge Montt glacier in the Patagonia region to sell as designer ice cubes in bars and restaurants.
    Local media reported that last Friday police intercepted a refrigerated truck with an estimated £3,900 worth of illicit ice allegedly bound for whiskies, rums and cocktails in the capital Santiago.

    Maybe Al Gore, and that fat bastard Michael Moore hired this guy to cater their party.

    Where does one store a glacier once you have stolen it?
