Can global warming be a good thing?
January 19, 2011 By Daisy Patino

While the whole world and their mothers are freaking out about global warming, The New York Times has found the silver lining.


An article in the New York Times explores how melting glaciers actually helping solve mysteries. With the recent high temperatures consistently melting ice, researchers have finally found the bodies of many people who had gone missing.


Some of the remains discovered include those belonging to Rafael Pabon, a pilot whose plane vanished in 1990.


Another great discovery was the body of the 500-year-old Incan girl found in the north of Argentina. Along with the remains of two younger children, the supposed teenager was plucked from the slopes of a cloudswept volcano in 1999 by a team who battled for three days through driving blizzards and 70mph winds to reach the summit 22,000 ft above sea level.


The bodies and clothing were still intact because of the ice, as if no time had passed since they were trapped in the mountains.


According to the New York Times researchers, "If the snow melts, even deeper histories may come to light."
