14 Sep 1912 – NATURAL PHENOMENA. GREAT GLACIER RECEDING. LEAVI…

According to Hansen, this massive glacial retreat occurred during the coldest years on record.

Hansen also tells us that glacial melt is due to global warming, and is going to drown Manhattan by the year 2008.

    Reblogged this on CACA and commented:
    “We are getting close to catastrophic tipping points,
    despite the fact that most people barely notice the warming yet.”
    – Dr James Hansen.

    The retreat was going on LONG before that:

    ” In 1879 naturalist John Muir found that the ice had retreated almost all the way up the bay, a distance of around 48 miles (77 km).[12] By 1916 the Grand Pacific Glacier was at the head of Tarr Inlet about 65 miles (105 km) from Glacier Bay’s mouth. This is the fastest documented glacier retreat.”

    Steve’s posts are our collective “living memory”, he won’t let us forget any babling of the the warmist pseudo-scientific crowd. Too bad for them!

    If you let the LIA end in a crashing thud as we have you’ve got to expect some knock-on effects like this. Where in God’s name were the climate alarmists in the mid 1800’s when all this global warming began? Hundreds of years of climate stability shot to hell thanks to those ineffective numpties who allowed the LIA to end without a fight, and we’ve been paying for it since. They could have reversed that if they’d tried! Well, actually, when you think about it we’ve been doing rather well in many sectors of the travel and leisure industries, farming and such, sure, but dammit it’s just not right! It’s not the way it was!

    I suppose, yes, the same blame could be handed the numpties that allowed the medieval warm period to just end with a thud as well. Again, hundreds of years of climate stability shot to hell because nobody cared. Didn’t these people know that climate change is the greatest threat mankind has ever faced? EVER! And what of those pre-medieval warming period numpties that just sat back and let that warming happen? It goes on and on and on. That would have been the time to halt this flip flop nonsense in its tracks. Surely they could have burned off a few less trees, taken up knitting saw grass and burning dung to stay warm, practiced better stewardship of this abused planet, embraced infanticide like we do today, what ever, to preserve the status quo. It’s not like they had better things to do after all.

    Well there’s your problem – nobody wants to lift a finger to stop climate change. Slackers! It seems the only thing we’ve learned from history is that – mmm, heh, something, surely, eh… thinking…
