Ski-resort workers in the Austrian Alps cover Brunnenkogel glacier with a fleece blanket to keep it from melting. If Europe's glaciers continue to shrink at the current rate of 1 percent per year, they will be nearly gone by 2100.
"Global warming is a false myth
and every serious person and scientist says so."
—Vaclav Klaus, president of the Czech Republic
