It is curious that the 2010 Arg. glacier protection law was passed within a year of the likely 2007 Aisen Fyord earthquake caused 1.5 year Chaiten volcano eruptions from 5/2008-12/2009 and spewed huge amounts of glacier melting ash on the surrounding Chilean/Argentinian glaciers and dislocated many of the local citizens for many months and miles.
The eruptions likely heightened the sensitivities of the politicians inspiring them to legislate whatever they could to possibly lesson any glacier melting. Good luck fining the earth.
There is no proof that CO2 causes glacial melting while China and India do unnecessarily introduce unAmerican allowed ash into the air that might promote some glacial melting.
Meanwhile, Antarctic ice is at recent historical high amounts causing global historic increases. A relatively small amount of Antarctic glacial shelf ice is being melted by coastal underwater thermal vents - again, not by "CO2 global warming" (catastrophically anthropogenically adjusted global warming (CAAGW)).
Please, keep it scientific and stop with the unsubstantiated CAAGW terror fraud.
