Disbelievers of Global Warming Cannot Dispute This
You’ll see no more dramatic evidence of the effects of climate change than is clearly visible in the film Chasing Ice, produced and directed by Jeff Orlowski.It tells the compelling story of Jim Balog’s five-year journey to record in time-lapse photography the disappearing glaciers on multiple continents.
My husband and I have been hiking glaciers for almost 30 years in Canada, Alaska, and Patagonia, particularly along the Columbia Ice fields in Canada and Alaska, in Glacier National Park in the US , and the National Glacier Park in Chile. We have witnessed first-hand the melting away of these magnificent glaciers, particularly in the past dozen years. We are returning in December to Los Glaciares National Park in Argentina and we are curious to see if we will experience the same shocking disappearance of these magnificent water sheds frozen over thousands of years.
Glaciers have been disappearing for 20,000 years – when Chicago was buried under a mile of ice.
Glacier Bay, Alaska retreated eight feet per day from 1780 to 1892
Explorer Captain George Vancouver found Icy Strait choked with ice in 1794, and Glacier Bay was barely an indented glacier. That glacier was more than 4000 ft. thick, up to 20 miles or more wide, and extended more than 100 miles to the St.Elias Range of mountains.
By 1879 naturist John Muir found that the ice had retreated 48 miles up the bay. By 1916 the Grand Pacific Glacier headed Tarr inlet 65 miles from Glacier Bay’s mouth.
The glaciers of Norway and Alaska lost half their mass during the first half of the 20th century. It has nothing to do with CO2.
Glaciers are retreating, because we are in an inter-glacial period. When the next ice age comes, glaciers will expand – and the human race will have real climate problems to worry about.
