Before-after photos of glaciers show their alarming decline

To show their rapid decline, a scientist is juxtaposing 20th century photos of glaciers with current ones. And the outcome is shocking.

    All this demonstrates us the fact that Earths climate continually changes as it has over 4.5 billion years! Do us all a favour and get China, Russia and India to stop polluting our air and oceans.

    You already started looking for livable planets like mars. WHITE PEOPLE should be held responsible. YOUr DESTROYing THE AMAZONS. YOU DESTROYed THE americas native inhabitants. You destroyed their culture and language. You discovered carbons and petrochemicals. You invented nuclear plants and plastics and now others copying and you said its bad for climate.?

    You white people have always been intervening other cultures and customs. Just like the native inhabitants of patagonia...you destroyed them...you are the aliens of this planet... 👊👊👊👁️👁️👁️👀👁️👁️

    11,000 years ago the planet was covered in ice, the oceans where 120 meters lower than today, it's natural , but don't worry, the earth will again be covered in meters of thick ice soon enough, and those that laugh , just show how thick they really are 👍👍 https://www.abc.net.au/news/science/2016-06-15/what-is-an-ice-age-explainer/7185002

    Very sad. We need to know this things so that we would know and the government how to take measures to lessen global warming.

    Good idea, but lousy presentation. Scenes change too fast. I would like to see side by side photos and let you stop and compare.

    What do you expect in 100years that nothing changes

    And thats is normal

    It's always striking to me that those who say this happens over time as if it's normal seem to be totally disregarding the current unprecedented rate of the decline of global ice. This is the singular factor that is alarming to climate scientists (and should be to every thinking person), not simply that it is happening. They act as if scientists aren't aware that ice ages have come and gone in the distant (pre-human) past. Modern Homo Sapiens have never experienced what is happening now and in the near future. They are wondering if we can adapt as quickly as things are changing.

    Proves nothing the earth has been melting since the last ice age. But alsoBrown looked at the official NASA global temperature data and noticed something surprising. From February 2016 to February 2018, “global average temperatures dropped by 0.56 degrees Celsius.” That, he notes, is the biggest two-year drop in the past century. “The 2016-2018 Big Chill,” he writes, “was composed of two Little Chills, the biggest five-month drop ever (February to June 2016) and the fourth biggest (February to June 2017). A similar event from February to June 2018 would bring global average temperatures below the 1980s average.” Brown’s discovery did not warrant any news coverage in US mainstream media.

    All The World's Ice An Snow Will Be Gone By 2022 Methane Induced Irradiated Heat It Is Going To Get Hotter an Wetter ““The amount of water vapor in the atmosphere exists in direct relation to the temperature. If you increase the temperature, more water evaporates and becomes vapor, and vice versa. So when something else causes a temperature increase (such as extra CO2 from fossil fuels), more water evaporates. Then, since water vapor is a green house gas, this additional water vapor causes the temperature to go up even further — a positive feedback.” Explaining how the Water Vapor Greenhouse effect works; Sceptical Science. How much does water vapor amplify CO2 warming ? Studies show that water vapor feed back roughly doubles the amount of warming caused by CO2. So if there is a 1°C change caused by CO2, the water vapor will cause the temperature to go up another 1°C. When other feedback loops are included, the total warming from a potential 1°C change caused by CO2 is, in reality, as much as 3°C. “A warmer atmosphere can hold more moisture, and globally water vapour increases by 7% for every degree centigrade of warming.””Kevin Hester Carbon 415.78ppm + Methane Natural Gas 2,300ppb + Water Vapour = Global Warming Extreme Deadly Weather Abrupt Climate Changing Sea Level Rising Over 220 Feet Add 1.8C.
