Melting Glaciers … before and after photos

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.

    Don’t you have any photos of glaciers?
    I thought you had before and after glacier photos+

    This is an alarming signal of nature, that we need to take some action proactively to save our nature. This is sign for us to wake up and come forward individually to save our nature. Simply relying on the government policy and let them decide to take action is not going to work. Therefore, each and every individual have to play important role, rather waiting for some one to do something.

    We want some descriptive flair on our actions, deciding just what this means can add realism and common sense to our approach. That in turn can make our engaging more enjoyable. There are many ways you can describe the effects of damage and resisting damage. But is has to start form your home and from you first.

    Great, pictures. Hey Sanasha, WhY dO yOu TyPe LiKe DiS??

    Those pictures are interesting. I should show you a picture of my house in Winter and my house in Summer (same year). The results are AMAZING! In winter its completely covered in snow and in summer there is NONE.

    Did you know that there are active volcanoes under water? Did you know a volcano erupted under the glaciers with such ferocity that it it made Mt. St. Helens look small? Did you know there are over 75 active volcanoes in the regions most often shown as examples? Did you know that the other regions have been expanding?
    Did you know that global temperatures have been cooling?

    Did you know that there is no correlation between CO2 emissions and global warming which means CO2 cannot be the ’cause’?

    I am sure you care about the planet, about people, about our future. Unfortunately, there are very many people who are the equivalent to the ‘snake oil salesman’ of the 1800s. Snake oil salesman always sold snake oil, but they always changed their promise on what the oil ‘cured’. In one town it was arthritis because the people complained about arthritis. In another town, it was the flu because they suffered from the flu. These people know you care and they take advantage of you.

    CO2 causing global warming was created because people like you care so much you will be willing to change your life and more importantly part with your money.

    I hope you actually perform your own research and learn the real truth because every dollar diverted to global warming could have saved lives… it could go to health care, or to feed the poor, or to any of a number of valid and good purposes. Instead, you are used as a pawn to shift money to the unscrupulous.

    Are you aware that the people recognized by the U.N. (I.e. IPCC – international panel on climate change) report to the same people who repeatedly vote to issue sanctions on the ‘evil’ countries like Iran, Iraq, North Korea, etc. and then violate those sanctions? Do you know why they voted for sanctions and then violated them? Answer: so they could sell their goods and services (I.e. weapons and technology) and 10 to 100 times the normal going price.

    Instead of being a sucker, follow the money and learn the truth.

    Apparently someone made a huge effort to get these photos, and it’s great to see the differences, whatever it means. Thanks for putting them up – hope some other adults see them also.

    as a man that lives among some of the largest glaciers in north america i would like to point out thet some of these glaciers thet i see every day of my life are growing while some are shrinking and i personly have seen global warming enthusiest measure the shrinking glaciers around me in the late spring when these glaciers are at there largest then a few years later measure these same glaciers in the late fall when there at the smallest poin tand use that as proof that the glaciers are melting, while convinently not mentioning the time of the year these pictures and measurements were taken and also not bringing up the fact thet a few miles away theres a glacier thets gorwing. also the glaciers around me generaly grow in the warm years cuz thats when theres more snow fall while on the colder years its dry and not much snow falls.

Got something to say?
