Yakutat is in Alaska. I know this because their High School Basketball team beat my girlfriend's brother's team last season. I have made it my mission to prevent him from forgetting that a town with a population (700) smaller than his high school (800) beat them.

Regarding the comment that if the shift happened today "the story would have been just one in the slew of climate change headlines." What does it matter if the headline refers to Global warming or not, facts are facts. If the story was never reported it would not mean that Global Warming is not occuring. And it certainly would not mean that the Glacier did not change its course.

Acckkk!!! Hubbard Glacier and Yakutat are in Alaska, part of the USA since 1867. NOT Canada!!! I've been to Yakutat. It's a beautiful place. Please correct this error, for the embetterment of mankind. Also, stuff like this hurts my eyes. Thanks.

Thank you for fixing the geography error. We Alaskans are rather fond of Canada, but I don't know if we're up to giving them any of our real estate. Yet.

Btw, glaciers advance and retreat all the time. Analysing glacial movement as an indicator of climate change is akin to scrying using chicken guts.

Here's a brain teaser for you: Pretend you are an economist or an author. The New York Times wants to put your blog on their website but won't give you sufficient bandwidth or server capacity to keep your faithful readers from wanting to pull their hair out every time they read it. Do you accept their offer?

Cameras all over the city is something essential since that is a way policeman can control everything that is going in the city. Even though it says that only one crime is solved for every 1,000 cameras, it is still something useful because it makes criminals feel threaten. If there were not any cameras in the city, maybe thiefs and criminals would not feel intimidated, and people will steal and kill more. Cameras can have multi-purposes, and the most common is probably to solve a crime, but it has other effective uses,.One of those uses is making criminals feel alert, which reduces crime significantly.

Using cameras instead of policeman can also be more effective for two reasons. First of all, the labor cost will be reduced significantly if cameras are used. Second of all, cameras can help you store the information about a crime and can help you identify a criminal easier than how a policeman does it.

Aditionally, since crime can not be avoided, cameras and policeman will not solve the complete problem, there will just be a small improvement. Some people will find out that policeman or cameras do a good job, others find out that they are inefficient. It is something controversial, and subjective because people can evaluate security in a different way.
