Watch Climate Scientists Explore Melting Alaskan Glaciers on ‘Earth Focus’ | EcoWatch

Glaciers have been melting in Alaska for thousands of years.

As you enter Glacier Bay in Southeast Alaska you will cruise along shorelines completely covered by ice just 200 years ago.

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.

    This is simply unbelievable, highly unreal. So many conflicting facts and opinions, as if.today’s modern climate scientist had no access to the recorded knowledge and notes of those who preceded them in exploring the world.

    It is, as if, today’s modern climate scientist lives an isolated click-ish/clan-ish intellectual life, away from common knowledge (appearing in newspapers even!) passed down just a hundred plus years back.

      Yeah, and I think the fear mongering bullshit artists just don’t care what happened 150 years ago. They’re looking for information or “data” that fits their narrative. Everything else they’ll disregard. And they’ll talk about the melting glaciers in Alaska as if that spells doom. I’m sure they actually know that the glaciers have been melting for hundreds of years. That point they conveniently forget to mention.

    • Tel says:

      They have access, but that would require them to look.

    They aren’t scientists. They are Marxists.

    • Jason Calley says:

      They absolutely are not scientists. As for the “Marxists”, I think that they may be something even worse than actual Marxists — and trust me, I have no respect for Marxists. I fear that the Marxist kumbahya bulls%$& is only what the barkers yell to bring the rubes into the tent. Sadly for the rubes, their tent show will not end in a happy worker’s paradise.

        ‘KILLING THOSE “UNFIT TO LIVE”

        “The moment we face it frankly we are driven to the conclusion that the community has a right to put a price on the right to live in it … If people are fit to live, let them live under decent human conditions. If they are not fit to live, kill them in a decent human way. Is it any wonder that some of us are driven to prescribe the lethal chamber as the solution for the hard cases which are at present made the excuse for dragging all the other cases down to their level, and the only solution that will create a sense of full social responsibility in modern populations?”

        Source: George Bernard Shaw, Prefaces (London: Constable and Co., 1934), p. 296.

        Amazing how we study George Bernard Shaw in school but never read any quotes from him like this.

        That quote gets routinely removed from sites on Shaw.
        like this for example:

    Naturists were tough in those days. The glaciers would not be the only thing shrinking.

  4. gator69 says:

    John Muir was not a climatologist. 😉

    • Jason Calley says:

      Oooohhh… good one. Yes, he was not a climatologist — therefore everything he reported can be discounted. In fact, since climatology is a young science, every report older than 30 years can be discounted (if convenient!)

  5. Chip Bennett says:

    Thanks for the picture. So that’s what tin-foil hats looked like in 1879!

    • Gail Combs says:

      Blech, I made the mistake of reading the drivel.

      I hope they get completely stuck and Canada hands them a HUGE bill for rescue.

      Actually if I was Canada I would require payment BEFORE they are allowed to make the attempt. {:>D
