"Oct 12, 2003. All seven glaciers on California's Mount Shasta'sare growing,
says Slawek Tulaczyk, a glaciologist at the University of California, Santa Cruz.
This includes three-mile-long Whitney, the state's largest. Not only are the
glaciers growing, three of them have doubled in size since 1950. Meanwhile,
seven smaller glaciers in California's Sierra Nevadas are smaller than they
were 100 years ago."
