Nature published a satellite data analysis, "Recent contributions of glaciers and ice caps to sea level rise" (paywall). In a press release, "CU-Boulder study shows global glaciers, ice caps shedding billions of tons of mass annually," it was explained, "The measurements are important because the melting of the world’s glaciers and ice caps, along with Greenland and Antarctica, pose the greatest threat to sea level increases in the future." But according to IBD: "Study Confirms Hima-Lyin’ About Climate Change"
Compare with coverage by:
Reuters: "Scientists melt mystery over icecaps and sea levels"
Christian Science Monitor: "NASA satellites reveal colossal ice melt, greenhouse gasses blamed"
E&E Publishing: "Melting ice sheets already seen driving sea-level rise "
Discovery News: "Glaciers: The Biggest Losers"

Over at Forbes, denier Patrick Michaels (see my 2/4 post) claims the Nature study created: "An Unsettling Week For Global Warming's 'Settled Science'"
