Vast Alpine glacier could almost vanish by 2100 due to warming GREAT ALETSCH GLACIER, SWITZERLAND

DENIS BALIBOUSE

One of Europe’s biggest glaciers, the Great Aletsch, coils 23 km (14 miles) through the Swiss Alps – and yet this mighty river of ice could almost vanish in the lifetimes of people born today because of climate change.

The glacier, 900 meters (2,950 feet) thick at one point, has retreated about 3 km (1.9 miles) since 1870 and that pace is quickening, as with many other glaciers around the globe.

That is feeding more water into the oceans and raising world sea levels.

The average rate of retreat the article is claiming since 1870 is 69 feet per year.

The Aletsch Glacier shrank 380 feet from 1900 to 1908, which according to NASA was the coldest period on record, with declining temperatures.

Glaciers in the Alps were retreating “considerably more than 100 ft per year” prior to 1902, which was a cold period of declining temperatures according to NASA.

Denis Balibouse is describing a phenomenon which has been going on at a similar rate for one and a half centuries, during periods of declining temperatures and much lower CO2, He is blaming it on “climate change” without presenting one shred of evidence to back his assertion. This is standard operating procedure among climate fraudsters. He claims to do research, but is simply parroting propaganda.

    As noted elsewhere, we face an evil and powerful force today that is even now being defeated by coincidence !

      We face an evil and powerful force that is even now being defeated by REALITY:

      1. Humans were endowed by their “Creator” with certain inalienable rights (“Declaration of Independence” from the UK, Thomas Jefferson, 1776)

      2. Chemical atoms were endowed by the “Conscious and intelligent Mind” that guided the force holding spinning electrons and protons together with inalienable volumes and vibrations (“The Essence of Matter,” Max Planck, 1944), and

      3. “A nearby pulsar” (most likely in the core of the Sun) endowed Earth’s biological molecules with intrinsic homochirality (“Birthday greeting from a former student,” JT Lee, 14 Oct 2015)!

      All is well,

    Reblogged this on Canadian Climate Guy.

    Yet another IPCC parot. Just what the world needs, more mindless uninformed idiots blaming everything they see on climate change…. or global warming or what ever you want to call it these days.

    It gets tiring to listen to….

  4. True, but Balibouse is just another wannabe parrot. Ted Richards is a real parrot:

    Yes, make an outrageous prediction that no adult will live to see. Can’t be proved or disproved. I can predict that by 2100 little green men from outer space will take over the Earth. Can’t be proved or disproved and is equally meaningless.

  6. Rosco says:

    If the glacier were 100 kilometres wide – ridiculous ! – 900 metres thick over the whole 3 km the total volume of melt would be 3000 x 900 x 100000 cubic metres over 145 years = 2.7 x 10^11 cubic metres.

    Of the ocean’s volume of ~1.332 x 10^18 cubic metres this represents 2.1 x 10^ -5 of 1 percent

    0.000021 %.

    If it were 1 km wide – the value is 0.00000021 %

    Hope my maths is right.

    I am terrified.
