Climate fraudsters say that glaciers melting is an “early sign of global warming.”

Early Warning Signs of Global Warming: Glaciers Melting

They are lying. Glaciers have been melting for a very long time, and were melting during NASA’s claimed coldest years ever.

One Response to Disappearing Glaciers

    Reading a pathetic op-ed in the LAT’s today, http://www.latimes.com/opinion/op-ed/la-oe-0125-herrmann-climate-refugees-20160125-story.html, and seeing your post earlier – I was taking another look at the Exit Glacier in Alaska – “Obama’s pet glacier.”
    “In September during his visit to Alaska, Obama told the country, “Climate change is no longer some far-off problem. It is happening here. It is happening now.” Then something about ‘if we don’t do something now, our children won’t ever be able to see this glacier . . bla bla bla.”

    One assumes the author of the op-ed and Obama are speaking of some man-made climate change, ACC, as opposed to naturally occurring CC, which they propose is actually already observable. Scientifically – that jury hasn’t even taken a seat yet. They’re desperate to get to the table – but have yet to find worsening global trends in more extreme anything.

    Obama was referring to the rapidly receding Exit Glacier, which he visited to much media fanfare. Unfortunately, his staff – the national media – and the author of the op-ed – didn’t brush up on the science and the empirical evidence of what’s naturally occurring (and documented).

    One can assume that most all to all retreat of the glacier prior to 1950 is naturally occurring (consensus is that AGW begins somewhere between 1950-1970’s), and that there could be some human footprint in additional melt in the period after. On another NPS map which plots the glacier terminus between 1950 and 1989, one sees considerable retreat from 1950 to 1973, but then from 1973 to 2008, it just sort of wobbled back and forth (advancing a bit, then receding a bit) – loosing some width but little length. In the last 7 years, I believe that the glacier has retreated again – don’t know how much. Per the NPS graphic, The 2008 terminus is in roughly the same place as in 1973.

    So . .

    From 1815 to 1950, the glacier retreated 4,892 ft, for an average rate of 36 ft/yr.

    From 1950 to 2008, the glacier retreated another 1,657 feet, for an average rate of 28.6 ft/yr.

    Retreating more slowly after AGW begins – Interesting indeed.

    It was widely reported, during Obama’s visit to the glacier that the glacier retreated 187 feet during the past year. OK, but from . .

    1894 – 1899, it’s retreat averaged 187 ft/yr.
    1914 – 1917, it’s retreat averaged 302 ft/yr.

    Yet – Obama called on us to stop the retreat of the glacier.

    Yes Virgina, he really did.
