    Anthropogenic global warming is melting the world's glaciers at increasing rates. This poses some grave dangers to the vast populations around the world who are dependent on glacial melt water feeding into the river systems as a supply of water for drinking and agriculture in the dry summer months. The glaciers of the Himalayas are mostly shrinking rapidly and these glaciers are the source of water for hundreds of millions of people in India and China. Some mountaineer photographers recently took current photos of many glaciers from the same spots that photos were taken many decades ago, showing the changes in the ice very clearly. Take a look.

    Rivers of ice: Vanishing glaciers
    Stunning images from high in the Himalayas - showing the extent by which many glaciers have shrunk in the past 80 years or so - have gone on display at the Royal Geographical Society in central London.

    Now all you have to do is provide some hard, observed, repeatable evidence that man is responsible.

    By the way:

    Which physical law supports and predicts a greenhouse effect as described by warmists?

    That's been done many times by a number of people, wiredwrong, but you are just tooooooo retarded, confused and brainwashed to get it so nobody is going to waste much time with your nonsense anymore.

    But just by the way, you poor silly retard, the greenhouse effect is an observed phenomena. What you call 'physical laws' are attempts to make generalizations about reality based on observed phenomena. Observed phenomena don't need a "physical law" to "predict or support" them to make them real. Nevertheless there are "laws" of radiative physics that do explain the greenhouse effect. Those "laws", developed over the last century and a half or so, are partially based on direct observations of the IR trapping qualities of greenhouse gases.

    How do we know that humans are the major cause of global warming?

    So........whats the point s0n?

    I laugh my balls off when I see threads like these posted up in this forum!!! Like......what is this? A public service announcement?

    Whats the point?


    Should we all be "stunned"? And lets say we all are "stunned"? So what? Are you proud of yourself this morning for stunning us? Is that the point?

    Like I said over a year ago on here. Nobody cares. Its 2011..........nobody cares about this shit anymore. k00ks like Rolling Thunder fall all over themselves publicizing the alarmist crap for years, and as each year passes, less and less people give a rats ass.


    What do psychiatrists call folks who do things over and over and over and over and over and over again yet keep expecting a different outcome?

    Is this like the "adjustments" made to maps to show Greenland glaciers retreating when they were increasing?

    Got a cite that shows Greenland glaciers increasing? PUT UP OR SHUT UP.
