According to Boris Johnson’s father-in-law’s newspaper, melting glaciers are a clear sign of climate change caused by greenhouse gases.

In 1910, glaciers were retreating in South America and most of the rest of the world.

“It appears that, save over a small area, the glaciers of the world are retreating to the mountains. The Arapahoe glacier in the Rockies has been melting at a rapid rate for several years. The glacier on Mount Sarmiento in South America. ; which descended into the sea during the last century, is now separated from the shore by a vigorous growth of timber The Jacobshaven glacier in Greenland hat* retreated four miles since the year 1860, and the East glacier in Spitzbergen is more than a mile away from its old terminal moraine. In Scandinavia the s:now line is farther up the mountains, and the glaciers have withdrawn 3,000 feet from the lowlands in a century In the Eastern Alps and one or two other small districts the glaciers are growing.”

“In March, a NASA-led research team announced that Jakobshavn Isbrae, is … thickening and advancing toward the ocean”
Following the study’s publication, additional analyses show Jakobshavn grew thicker by 22 and 33 yards (20 to 30 meters) each year from 2016 to 2019.”

According to NASA, glaciers melt during the coldest years on record and they grow during the hottest years on record, and this bad news.
The 20 years preceding 1902 was during a centennial solar minimum, so the AMO was warmer, that drives continental glacier retreat.
All of this is due to climate change ™. While global warming ™ only causes ice the recede, cc can make it grow. In fact, it can make it do whatever to somehow fit the storyline. So, if you see ice flaoting around or singing or being ejected into the stratosphere, all of that is due to man made climate change ™.
It’s interesting how, according to the “experts”, receding glaciers are attributed to AGW ; but at the same time growing glaciers like Jakobshavn are attributed to another cause: changing ocean currents. But couldn’t changing ocean currents also cause glaciers to recede? They never consider that.
