    We’ve been here before. That “naturist” typo cracks me up every time.

    Telling the truth is cherry-picking. To be ‘inclusive’, and not judgmental, you must give all narratives equal time.

    People need to read this: Know Thy Enemy,

    Glaciers can also return is a generation’s time:

    Little Ice Age, Big Chill

    In 1653, advancing glaciers were wiping out communities in the French Alps, that had existed there for centuries due to the Medieval Warm Period. They advanced so fast that the Catholic Church was even called in to intervene.

    Watch it before it gets “memory holed”. (lol)

    I was on an Alaskan cruise back in September, 2006 and we explored Glacier Bay. We had a National Park naturalist on board who was serving as a tour guide and provided narration. She told us that 50% of the glaciers in the park were advancing, and 50% of them were retreating. She said it had little to do with temperature, but the respective advancing or retreating was a factor of how much precipitation the respective areas received.

    I’ve heard that in recent years the on-board naturalists now are also fully on-board to all the changes being completely due to climate change. I’m glad I went when I did.
