    Default 100-foot deep Andes lake disappears

    100-foot deep Andes lake disappears
    Story Highlights
    Lake disappeared between March and May


    Ice chunks that floated on lake now lie on rocks



    SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) -- A five-acre glacial lake in Chile's southern Andes has disappeared -- and scientists want to know why.


    An undated photo shows a lake in the Chilean Andes as it was before May.

    1 of 3 Park rangers at Bernardo O'Higgins National Park said they found a 100-feet-deep crater in late May were the lake had been in March. Several large pieces of ice that used to float atop the water also were spotted.

    "The lake had simply disappeared," Juan Jose Romero, head of Chile's National Forest Service in the southernmost region of Magallanes, said Wednesday. "No one knows what happened."

    A group of geologists and other experts will be sent to the area 1,250 miles southeast of Santiago in the next few days to investigate, Romero said.

    One theory is the water disappeared through cracks in the lake bottom into underground fissures. But experts do not know why the cracks would have appeared because there have been no earthquakes reported in the area recently, Romero said.

    A river that flowed out of the lake was reduced to a trickle.

    I love how scientists are positive that global warming is real, yet they can't exlpain an entire lake disappearing in 3 weeks.

    I think you missed "A group of geologists and other experts will be sent to the area 1,250 miles southeast of Santiago in the next few days to investigate" bit.

    Oh great, here we go again. Sorry, but global warming IS real! North Pole is melting, which is why the polar bears are getting thinner. Nothing to eat! Explain that if global warming isn't real.

    Hey, I'm doing a paper on Global Warming. You seem to be an expert on the subject so maybe you can help.

    What day did they discover irrefutable evidence that human beings are causing a global climate shift? When did the majority of the scientific world accept a universal theory on Global Warming, I kinda need an exact day and who was involved (but it has to be the majority of the scientific community otherwise it's not scientific fact, so this is important, I really want an A+).

    Also, were obviously not REAL climate scientists like yourself so maybe you can enlighten the rest us. How are you scientists explaining the past ice ages? Because each one probably followed a global climate shift like were seeing today, and human's weren't really that impactful concerning the planet so it's difficult for us laymen types to understand this.

    Wow, I love this place. We have REAL anti terrorism operatives, professional football players, tough guys, climate scientists, professors of History, English professors, and a couple of certified geniuses. What a great place to hang out, you can always count on somebody smarter then you to explain how stupid and misguided you are.

    Anyway, thanks dude, hopefully you find some time between your real job as climate scientist and help a brother out.

    Thanks!!!

    I'm pretty sure I used it to wash my balls, but it might have been another lake (I was drunk at the time so my memory is somewhat fuzzy). After hearing about the missing lake I naturally assumed it was the body of icy water I used to wash my nuts.

    It is?

    How do you know this stuff? How exactly? let me know.

    I'll check back.
    If eddie were down and out on a sidewalk playing guitar I'd be next to him with a bottle and a blanky braving the cold. I would be sucking my thumb happily making chupa chupa noises in sync with the petroglyphic sounds that came from the mighty finger tips of Edward Van Halen.
