Mount Shasta Glaciers Growing
 

Including three-mile-long Whitney, the state's largest

Oct 12, 2003. All seven glaciers on California's Mount Shasta are 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 Nevada are smaller than they were 100 years ago. 

This story, written by Usha Lee McFarling at the Los Angeles Times, should have been front page news. But no, it was published on page B1. In the Seattle Times, it was published on page 16. 

But did the headlines mention growing glaciers?

Not on your life. 

The L.A. Times shrieked "Sierra Glaciers in Rapid Retreat." In Seattle, 
the headline read "California Glaciers Altered by Climate." 

I'll leave it up to you. Are these headlines misleading or not?

This article came out in 2003. A later article in 2008, written by Samantha Young, confirmed that all seven glaciers were still growing.
