    This link to Real Science just nails the global warming fraudsters. They start with a 1940 photo of a glacier, and then to a 2004 photo but skip a 1950 photo that shows most of the melt occurred in the 40's.

    And don't show the map that shows 2/3 of the melt occured before 1880.

    Here's the link:

    Interesting. The more you read about the global warming cult, the more convinced you become that they are little more than an organized con.

    and finally 2004

    and just for good measure here is a map of the area showing where the glaciers were going back in time.

    it doesnt appear as if very much of the total melting has been recent.

    from the map it seems as if most of the Western Arm melted between 1860-1879. must have been pretty hot then, huh?

    The cult of Gorbal Warming is a subsidiary of the Environmental Movement, just like the Baptist church is a subsidiary of Christianity. Both cults are founded on their "faith" in the word of their chosen messiahs.

    I guess this is a case of seeing what you want to see.

    Look at the 1940 picture. See mountain in the distance on the left. Now look at the 1950 photo. See the lighter line just above the ice. That is where the ice was in the 1940 picture. Now look at that same line in the 2004 picture. A lot of ice had to melt to create the depth of that line.

    In the middle, the mountain most distant, there is a near horizontal line above the ice. When you compare the pictures you can see the amount the ice has melted back.

    Of course, if you deny what your eyes are telling you, you will see nothing. And that seems to be the case for you fellows. Glaciologists from all over the world have been detailing the retreat of the glaciars for over one hundred years. A retreat that is accelerating.

    The deniers are the ones basing their opinions on the "faith" that despite the known properties of GHGs and their rise over the last 200 years, we can't possibly be having an effect on something as large as earth. I don't adhere to Messiahs myself, preferring the logic of A causes B, A is increasing, therefore B will increase. :cool:

    Ice comes and goes. Glaciation, and the recession of glaciers are part of a larger cycle. But of course, a being capable of creating any number of gods in their own image would be arrogant enough to think their feeble lives would naturally have some significant effect on their environment.
