    It seems I was wrong on the severity of the problem, Old Crock was right. It is time we take the lost of the Arctic and Glacier ice seriously.

    What is that a graph of?

    Mt Hood's glaciers are smaller every summer, from what i can see from my apartment. Is this reduction per year or something?

    Unfortunately my skills attaching images is poor. Maybe its too big so its resized as a thumbnail.

    You have to double click on the graph to see it.

    Central Oregon’s Vanishing Glacier


    By Joseph Friedrichs, 10-25-07



    The Collier Glacier, one of Central Oregon’s most treasured natural possessions, is shrinking faster than most of the 35 other glaciers in the state, a team of geologists who spent time this summer exploring the region reported.

    Ellen Morris Bishop, an Oregon-based geologist, told the Associated Press that the glaciers of the Oregon Cascades are in a “chaotic shrink” phase. And where do Bishop and her crew place the blame? Why global warming, of course.

    I hear that in not very many years they may have to rename Glacier national park.

    You got to thank me for this, even you have to admit that graph is pretty funny.

    Not just Hood, but also Adams, Jefferson, and all of our snowcaps are losing ice. The biggest single area of glaciers in the lower 48, the North Cascades, is also losing ice.

    Maybe you need to post the link to the article that the graph came from.
