Now now, hasn't this topic been beaten to death already?! Although I'm certainly not an expert, I have read considerable amounts of information that say that the current warming trend has the ability if not the certainty of actually plunging most of North America and other places of similar longitudes into a new ice age by shutting down the circulation of warm water in the oceans. Ergo, the glaciers would be "saved"! Plus think of how much the resorts will save on electricity when they no longer need to make snow...
Besides, global warming is a myth brought on by reactionary groups on both sides of the debate. Even if it were proven to be true (that HUMANS and not natural events, geological cycles, etc. caused the UNNATURAL, rapid warming of the planet), the Earth will be fine. To paraphrase that mouthpiece of the U.S. Government, George Carlin, "The planet isn't going anywhere. We are! The planet is fine...the people are f***ed!"
In all seriousness, I'm glad the Swiss have come up with an idea to save the glacier, thereby allowing the skiing to continue.
