    The point being that this has been going on a long time, way before man’s influence, yes. You can explain this to people and they won’t even see the connection, the urge to be loved and adored is so strong…

  2. But, but that’s not peer-reviewed or “settled” by a nameless, faceless consensus!
    “Many men in the Home of the Scholars have had strange new ideas in the past,” said Solidarity 8-1164, “but when the majority of their brother Scholars voted against them, they abandoned their ideas as all men must.” Anthem, by Ayn Rand, 1937, 1945

    Nisqually Glacier likely gets the most intense sunlight of all Mt. Rainier’s glaciers, because of its aspect.
    On a 32-point compass rose, this would be #14 (SEbs; south east by south), or one point more to the south past SouthEast.
    I’m more familiar with the Emmons Glacier that faces NE.
