National Geographic 1967 : Solar Activity Controls Glaciers

Alaska’s ice masses advance and retreat in direct correlation with cyclic changes in sunspot numbers. Sunspots coincide with strong electrical energy discharges from the sun …… cyclic solar storms affect glaciers’ temperatures and nourishment—snow—causing growth and decay in similar cycles. We detect an intercontinental similarity in the glaciers’ regular thickening and thinning.

    I loved National Geographic in the 60-70-80’s.
    Oh well.

      They slid down the slippery slope along with the Boy Scouts, the NFL, libraries, journalism, NASA, and so many other fine American institutions.

        There is nothing (neo)marxism/progressivism touches that won’t be corrupted and eventually turned into shit.
        (which is a logical result of an ideology that goes so much against common sense and natural laws and has nothing original to give but can only survive by criticizing existing things and destroy them by pretending to improve them)

    Great find! Thank you. I hope the Scott Adams plugs is expanding the readership.

    That’s so 1960ies.
    Nowadays sun spots were replaced by the almighty co2,
    therefore melting ice by adding more energy to a system(eg. sunspots)
    from the only energy source
    turned from “obviously logical” to theoretical conspiracy.

    Though some looneys dare to claim that the reason why the longest glacier in the southern hemisphere(Pio XI) is growing just as the Perito Moreno Glacier(3*manhattan size)does
    is because AGW is a hoax.

    My goodness, has science gone down the tubes over the last 50 years. We must be undergoing a period of negative evolution, the human mind rapidly retrograding to the level of an ape.
