See these glaciers while they’re still around
Glaciers — those majestic, year-round slow rivers of ice — are on the leading edge of climate change, as they lose more mass through melting each summer than they gain in winter snow accumulation. Here's our tour of top glaciers on six continents, along with observations about what their eventual demise will mean for us and our planet.

Scientific facts: 1. Glaciers melt, sometimes faster, sometimes slower. 2. Ice that melts and slides off the end of a glacier is replenished faster or slower.
We haven't been around long enough to study those limits (thousands or more years) so at that point we fall from science to incomplete data and speculation.
I love Montana..
Conveniently, you have forgotten ClimateGate where scientists at Anglia were lying about so-called global warming so they could keep their grants. Turns out someone hacked into their e-mails and found comments showing that their sensors were showing no GW.
The UK Daily Mail recently published reports showing that GW stopped 15 yrs ago.
Liberals are trying to get the populace to believe in so-called Global warming so that they can discredit capitalism.
