In 1963, 4 years before the first global warming predictions, French television was already wondering about the melting of glaciers. #TBT

    Angry that we've known for so long and have yet to do anything about it...esp idiots like Trump.

    Err... In the 1960s the global temperature average was without any significant increase in temperature and the decades preceding it were abnormally cold. Reasonably there would be plenty of glaciers in the 1960s. The major increases in global average temperatures started after about 1970. Glaciers increase and decrease all the time due to yearly and regional variations and this makes them poor indicators of a global temperature increase of decrease. They are also constantly moving. Just stick to the graphs NASA provides of global average temperatures. Don't rely on some guy telling you there used to be more snow where he is standing.

    It is so F___ing arrogant of humans to think that we have anything to do with or can control the climate or weather. I listen to all the scared and concerned about this but yet not one of the cry babies are doing anything about it. They still have all their creature comforts and won't give any of them up but wants the government to do something which of course they can't either. I've lived in Florida most all my life on the water and have not noticed one inch of increased water levels. This is all BS to take control of you. Obummer just bought a 15 million dollar estate on the water. Think about that for a while. SMH

    1963 was 67 years after the publication of Svante Arrhenius' calculation of the effect of doubling atmospheric carbon dioxide and his observation that humans were "evaporating our coal mines into the atmosphere". I would call that a prediction of global warming.

    Dont you know, global warming and climate change is a farce!? Thats what most people still think.

    If we continue to pollute our own body with junk surely will be sick, if we continue to pollute our only planet called Earth, only dammed fools will not understand the results 😮😣😥

    Tdh Orlando if you went out your door and the sea level or river level changed by 6 or 8m you would wonder hmmm what is happening here. Do we need to move, take action. Yes things change but when they change rapidly they impact people's lives hence wondering do we need to take action to safe guards lives, property etc. If you don't consider that you are putting yourself at risk! Remember people have been living in the French Alps for a very long time and there were few changes to the glaciers...it would have been in the written, verbal histories, so these people did note it and recognised it as something to be monitored, studied and if possible action taken!

    It holds mysteries only to the clueless idiots who look at the world in their lifetime and ASSUME that the world was always like THEY SAW IT and will always be like THEY SAW IT. Guess what? It WONT ALWAYS BE LIKE YOU SAW IT. Glaciers come and glaciers go and the world moves on and does just fine.
