The glacier was retreating with CO2 at 280 ppm. What exactly does this genius want us to do?
Glaciers show need to stop global warming
June 19, 2011
In 1977, I visited Glacier National Park in Montana to see Grinnell Glacier, which is accessible only by foot. The trail is approximately 10 miles round trip and climbs about 1,600 feet. All hikers who go onto the glacier must be accompanied for safety reasons by a park ranger who has rope and crampon spikes for shoes. The ranger took us onto the extremely large glacier.
Recently while searching the Internet, I found current photos of Grinnell Glacier. The place where I was standing in 1977 no longer exists. The glacier, which had been several hundred feet thick and several square miles in size, has melted to the point that it is approximately 20 percent of the size in 1977.
In 2003, U.S. Geological Survey predicted that all glaciers in Glacier National Park would be completely gone by 2030. In 2007, USGS revised this date to 2022. It is hard to dispute personal and photographic evidence of disappearing glaciers in Glacier National Park. Our weather will continue to provide more severe droughts, more flooding, hotter summers, colder winters and more tornados until a way is found to stop global warming
