Re: Melting glaciers, North Cascades

Yes, glaciers have been melting since the ice age.  It is greatly accelerated now due to CO2 from human activities. Even if we stopped with carbon emissions now, it would take centuries if not thousands of years for plants and other agents to remove it from the atmosphere.

Most people, yes, the majority do not see changes. That is where science comes in...there are means of measuring earth history that tell a story of changes beyond the lifespan of an ordinary human being.

In my years on this earth (73), I have seen changes...all in one direction...heat waves, loss of snow (and glaciers), increased fire and air pollution...some folks just don't look up?
