This collection of before and after photos of glaciers seems to show a fairly obvious pattern, namely things are ‘hotting up’ for our World.
The before photos are mostly in the early 1900s and all seem to show fairly extensive bodies of ice making up the glaciers.
The corresponding glaciers when photographed in the late 1900s and early 2000s all seem to show greatly reduced bodies of ice.
Now all the people who want to rant and rave that Global Warming is a hoax, would most likely have a theory to explain the lost ice in the glaciers and again to discount Global Warming, BUT I AM NOT BUYING IT.
See the rest of the pictures for yourself.
