Antarctic Glaciers Wont Melt

Atmospheric temperature should be much higher to make continental glaciers melt, said the head of Science and Research Institute of Arctic and Antarctic Regions Ivan Frolov.
      Many hundred years or 20-30 degree temperature rise would have made glaciers melt, says the scientist. Today Greenlands and Antarctic glaciers have the tendency to grow.
      Scientists have two opposite points of view concerning Earths climate global warming and global cooling. Mr. Frolov says cooling and warming periods are common for our planet temperature fluctuations amounted to 10-12 degrees. However, such fluctuations havent caused glaciers to melt. Thus, we shouldnt be afraid they melt today.
