Hansen : “practically all of the glaciers could be gone within 50 years”

He is being more conservative than the IPCC, which says that the Himalayan Glaciers will be gone in 25 years.

I’m still trying to figure out the movie “2012” where a giant flood drowned the Earth to an altitude of at least 15,000 feet. Where did all that water come from?

    Of course, that water came from computer models (those used in Hollywood that is)

    He’s getting conservative in his old age … now he’s making predictions that won’t come to pass until he’s long gone and buried.

    What a mindless movie that was. (spoilers for those who didn’t see but for some strange reason want to) Didn’t that movie also have whole contients shift thousands of miles and at the end Africa had risen in elevation? Pehraps those 15,000 foot mountians had dropped thousands of feet in elevation when the contintent they were one moved thousands of miles in one days time. Or perhaps it was, as I said before, a mindless movie.

    • I liked how they were having massive earthquakes in LA, so the mother (in LA) calls up the father (in Wyoming) and tells him to bring the kids back to LA.

      On the other hand, the father took the kids camping in summer clothes in Yellowstone in December, so they both deserved to be in the nut house.

    all that water came from the Aliens living at the bottom of the ocean, don’t you watch movies? šŸ™‚

    Does anyone care about lapse rate, freeze lines, etc anymore? Any glacier above 17000 ft is not going to melt due to global warming unless we repeal some basic physics.
