    Ya’ know, I’m beginning to get a sneaking suspicion that glaciers have a tendency to both grow AND retreat. I can’t quite put my finger on why I’m thinking this… Oh, wait. Yes, I can…. The Great Lakes, scoured bedrock & massive boulders in NYC, terminal moraines all over the Midwest and thousands of carved mountains and valleys around the planet are proof that ice comes and goes in cycles. (Hint to the Klimate Klown Posse: It’s called “natural climate cycles change”

      They made the “Proper” claim in the article
      “Co-author Joerg Schaefer, a geochemist and Lamont associate research professor, is concerned the findings could be misinterpreted by skeptics of climate change. They might conclude that, if the glacier is larger than it has been over most of the time during the past several thousand years, then there is little to worry about today.

      โ€œWhich is simply wrong,โ€ Schaefer said.”
