In a letter published in the New Scientist, April 2005, Bellamy claimed that a large percentage of the world’s glaciers were advancing (555 of 625), not retreating. On May 29, 2005, Bellamy wrote a letter to the Sunday Times, that his figures were wrong and that he had “decided to draw back from the debate on global warming.”
