Glaciers have been disappearing for 20,000 years, and sea level has been rising for 20,000 years. Bernie should remember that, because he was unemployed and living in a warehouse in Vermont with no electricity or plumbing for most of that period.

  1. Steve Case says:

    I hiked up to the Grinnell Glacier in 1960. The park rangers leading the hike told us then that the glaciers in the park had been receding for decades and that they would eventually disappear.

  2. Latitude says:

    Wonder if he wrote that from his new $1/2 million vacation home

  3. Don B says:

    Hubert Lamb:

    “It was after 2000-1500 BC that most of the present glaciers in the Rocky Mountains south of 57 o N were formed and that major re-advance of those in the Alaskan Rockies first took place.

    And at their subsequent advanced positions – probably around 500 BC as well as between 1650 and 1850 AD – the glaciers in the Alps regained an extent, estimated in the Glockner region, at about 5 times their Bronze Age Minimum, when all the smaller ones had disappeared.”

    Bernie is no climate historian.

  4. Gail Combs says:

    Interesting, I can not post about the non-legals inhabiting our parks. The comment has been censored three times in three different configurations.

  5. Gator69 says:

    Climate change is what created some of our most beautiful parks. Bernie has it all backwards, which is typical of a leftist.

    • Olaf Koenders says:

      Sorta true..

      National parks are a political construct that were outlined 100 years ago. They’ve been there in many forms for millions.

  6. Gail Combs says:

    This is an example of the problems left by the nonlegals.

      • Gail Combs says:

        Leftists, Ferals what’s the difference?

        • Gator69 says:

          Ferals do not commit genocide.

          • Gail Combs says:

            Don’t be too sure of that Gator.

            MEChA is invading our schools to teach removing the SW from the USA and giving it to Mexico.
            http://www.mayorno.com/WhoIsMecha.html

            ference on March 15 – 18, 2001, the official “MEChA Philosophy” was ratified. An excerpt from the document states: “as Mechistas, we vow to work for the liberation of Aztlan.”

            The MEChA Clubs on each of the Santa Barbara high school campuses are not the only ones. MEChA groups exist on 90 percent of the public high school, college and university campuses in the Southwestern United States.

            La Raza is a racist organization that makes the KKK look like a church picnic. The La Raza goal is based on getting back the territory that Mexico lost & the US paid for after the Mexican-American War. Therefore it should be considered a Terrorist organization since it openly advocates the violent overthrow of US rule of law and occupation of United States territory with the ultimate intent of sedition. That is the real La Raza, which receives federal funds 30 million in CA alone.
            “Chicano is our identity; it defines who we are as people. It rejects the notion that we…should assimilate into the Anglo-American melting pot…Aztlan was the legendary homeland of the Aztecas … It became synonymous with the vast territories of the Southwest, brutally stolen from a Mexican people marginalized and betrayed by the hostile custodians of the Manifest Destiny.” (Statement on University of Oregon MEChA Website, Jan. 3, 2006)
            We are a bronze people with a bronze culture. Before the world, before all of North America, before all our brothers in the bronze continent, we are a nation, we are a union of free pueblos, we are Aztlan. For La Raza todo. Fuera de La Raza nada.”
            That closing two-sentence motto is chilling to everyone who values equal rights for all. It says:

            “For The Race everything. Outside The Race, nothing.”

            …this is coming straight from the official MEChA sites at Georgetown University, the University of Texas, UCLA, University of Michigan, University of Colorado, University of Oregon, and many other colleges and universities around the country….
            Americans of course ARE NOT WELCOME in the new Mexican territories of California, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and anything else they can grab

          • gator69 says:

            Gail, La Raza is run by leftists, not ferals.

          • Gail Combs says:

            The guys I met were very much Mexican and anti-USA. I do a lot of parties for Hispanics and their lips flap when they are well lubricated.
            …..

            Jose Vasconcelos, who died in 1982, is the Nazi Propagandist behind La Raza Mexican nationalism. Jose was on the Nazi German payroll during WWII. La Raza, Spanish Mexicans with a dash of Indian, is the Mexican equivalent of the Nazi “aryan” Race. La Raza Cosmica is the Mexican equivalent of Hitler’s Mein Kemp written during the same time period by Vasconcelos.

            So yeah it is ‘socialist’ with it’s Nazi roots in Mexico.

            But they are still ferals, that is thugs organized by drug dealers and communists just like black lives matter is organized by another Nazi, George Soros.

            They have Zero use for the Rule of Law or property rights or any other civilized behavior which is why I call them Ferals. They are Not civilized humans. They are opportunists with no real loyalty to the Progressives or anyone outside their gang.

            (Civilized Hispanics hate and fear them)

          • gator69 says:

            The drug dealers have been created by leftist policies, and the ferals are useful to the leftists, which is why they are welcomed into the US by the likes of Skeeter.

            Get rid of the leftists, and you solve the problem.

        Or, on a larger scale, what the next big glacial advance will do to the landfills across Northern U.S. – as George Carlin put it, “the Earth, plus plastic.”

    Well Crazy Bernie is for sure my go-to guy for all things technical.

  8. Frank K. says:

    Re: Vermont

    I was biking through Vermont on Tuesday on mostly rural roads. Almost no political signs anywhere. Where I did see signs I saw two Bernie Sanders signs, one Trump sign, and one “Hilary for Prison” sign.

  9. Tim A says:

    “Bernie should remember that, because he was unemployed and living in a warehouse in Vermont with no electricity or plumbing for most of that period.”
    Yeah, but he took a shower every 2-3 weeks, so cut him some slack!

  10. CheshireRed says:

    Let’s be honest here; Bernie’s a prick.

  11. Bob Grise says:

    Don B beat me to it. The glaciers in Glacier are receding and may disappear, but they are only 3,000 years old. The park literature says so. Google it if you want.

  12. Snowleopard says:

    The fact that there are glaciers at all at that latitude and altitude, especially after the peak of this “warm period” is evidence that we are headed back to the glacial stage, not the other way.

  13. Will somebody tell me why we don’t celebrate when glaciers shrink.

    During the “Little Ice Age” Swiss farmers were losing their high pastures to glaciers. We know this from their reasons for failing to pay taxes. The History Channel explains this and much more in this documentary:

    • Olaf Koenders says:

      Exactly my point.. They’re useless, and destructive.

    • Gail Combs says:

      Or WHY you actually want glaciers and Arctic ice to grow and the climate to be colder?

      In the cooler 1970s we lost ~200 miles or a couple degrees of latitude in farmland capable of growing wheat and corn. Much of the earth’s land mass is above 45N (Canada and Russia and northern USA) The 1974 CIA Report, A Study of Climatological Research as it Pertains to Intelligence Problems, indicates a grain crisis during the late 1960s/ early 1970s due to this cooler dryer weather.

      … Since 1972 the grain crisis has intensified…. Since 1969 the storage of grain has decreased from 600 million metric tons to less than 100 million metric tons – a 30 day supply… many governments have gone to great lengths to hide their agricultural predicaments from other countries as well as from their own people…

      Koppen plant boundary movement shows why:

      http://www.sturmsoft.com/climate/suckling_mitchell_2000_fig2_3.gif

      If you add in warmer is wetter and during the first part of the Holocene the Sahara was grasslands not desert, so what if we lose a bit of coast? We gain a lot more farmland and that is much more critical than NYC or Washington DC

      Stone-Age graveyard reveals life in a “green Sahara”

      Scientists in Niger have found the Sahara Desert’s largest known Stone-Age graveyard, which offers an un­paralleled record of life when the region was green…

      Dating back 10,000 years and called Gobero after the Tuareg name for the area, the site was brimming with skeletons of humans and ani­mals including large fish and crocodiles, researchers said.

      Gobero is hidden away within Niger’s forbidding Ténéré Desert, known to local Tuareg nomads as a “desert within a desert.” The Ténéré is the setting of other dramatic scientific findings including the 500-toothed, plant-eating dinosaur Nigersaurus and the enormous ex­tinct crocodilia Sarcosuchus, also known as SuperCroc.

      The discovery of the lakeside graveyard—said to represent two successive human populations divided by more than 1,000 years—is reported in the September issue of National Geographic magazine and the Aug. 14 issue of the research journal PLoS One.

      As they explored the site, researchers said, they tiptoed among dozens of fossilized human skeletons laid bare on the surface of an ancient dune field by the hot Saharan wind.

      “Everywhere you turned, there were bones belonging to animals that don’t live in the desert,” said Sereno. “I realized we were in the green Sahara.”

      Two seasons of excavation supported by the society eventually revealed some 200 graves clearly belonging to two successive lakeside populations, scientists said. The older group, determined to be Kiffian, were hunters of wild game who left evidence that they also speared huge perch with harpoons when they colo­nized the green Sahara during its wettest period between 10,000 and 8,000 years ago. Their tall stature, some­times reaching well over 6 feet, was not immediately apparent from their tightly bound burial positions.

      The more recent population was the Tenerian, a more lightly built people who appeared to have had a di­verse economy of hunting, fishing and cattle herding, according to the research team. They lived during the latter part of the green Sahara, about 7,000 to 4,500 years ago. Their one-of-a-kind burials often included jew­elry or ritual poses—a girl wearing an upper-arm bracelet carved from a hippo tusk, for example, and a stun­ning triple burial containing a woman and two children in a poignant embrace….
