Chilean Glacier Ice Heist Lands Thieves in Hot Water

Posted by Sanaz 944 days ago in Hydrology from http://www.treehugger.com

As a result of climate change, Chile's Jorge Montt Glacier receded nearly a half-mile just last year alone -- but, as it turns out, global warming isn't the only thing robbing the region of its ice cover. Recently, Chilean police arrested members of a crime ring as they drove a refrigerated truck filled with over 5 tons of ice stolen from the already dwindling glacier. Authorities say they've never seen a case quite like this before.
