1930 : “Alpine glaciers are in full retreat.”

“WORD comes from Switzerland that the Alpine glaciers are in full retreat. Out of 102 glaciers observed by Professor P. L. Mercanton of the University of Lausanne and his associates more than two- thirds have been found to be shrinking. Does this mean the approach of a warmer climate, such as swept over our globe thousands of years ago? Will palms, cypresses, magnolias, myrtles and olive trees thrive at the feet of the Adirondacks,  as they did in those distant days?”
