Glaciers near the equator!!!

Carstensz Pryamid lies 4 degrees south of the equator.  However, there are four glaciers in the mountain range near Carstensz Pyramid. With global warming the rate of glacial retreat in this area is rapid.  It is estimated that within a decade these glaciers will have disappeared.  Then the greater Australia continental plate will become  the first completely ice free continent on the planet in 100,000 years.
