The bottom right of the pictures features the disappearing glacier



What do retreating glaciers revealing old tree stumps tell you?

The Morteratsch Glacier (Romansh: Vadret da Morteratsch) is the largest glacier by area in the Bernina Range of the Bündner Alps in Switzerland.

Stein Glacier, Switzerland, has retreated by 550 m (1,800 ft) between 2006 (left) and 2015 (right)

Barnacle doesn't like cheery picking of cold temperatures but
he does like cherry picking of glaciers.

What is of more interest is the amount of ice at the North and South poles + Greenland.
They say it's been increasing.

Growing Glaciers...

Quote:
A recurring trick by climate hysterics is to show an old photograph of one of GNP’s glaciers next to a more recent photo of the same glacier showing a massive decrease in size.  Often the pictures do not precisely specify what calendar dates the photos were taken on.  This is significant because the melting season is quite short and rapid, and an image from August can be starkly different from an image from just weeks earlier.

The average date of first freeze in East Glacier, Montana is September 13th.  It is only then that one can assess whether the glaciers are getting bigger or smaller than in previous years.


Quote:
Upon our return to the Hotel after visiting the Glacier, we noticed that our brand-new photos appear to show that the Grinnell Glacier has grown slightly from the 2008 images that are displayed on the Hotel walls.  There has been no reporting of this in any newspaper or broadcast that we know of.  (In fact, all news coverage reports the precise opposite.)  The smaller Gem Glacier—which is visible from the valley miles below—also appears to be slightly larger than it is shown in 2008 pictures on display.

Good link Grendel:

Global warming ended in 1995, top climate scientist tells BBC 


18 Feb 10 - (Excerpts) - The former director of the Climate Research Unit (CRU) at Britain’s University of East Anglia, admitted to the BBC last Saturday that there has been no statistically significant global warming since 1995, and that the world may have been warmer during medieval times.

In the interview (http://bit.ly/bv1fec), professor Phil Jones...confessed to the following:

·              - There was no statistically significant global warming from 1995 to 2009.

·              - From January 2002 to the present, the earth has been cooling.

·              - The Medieval Warm Period (MWP) from 800 to 1300 A.D., did exist, a
        scientifically accepted fact that Jones and other climate researchers tried to
        discount or hide.

Skeptics who have been making the same declarations for years, and were ignored, are enjoying a “We told you” moment.

“They’ve finally admitted that the current warming period is similar to previous warming periods. Congratulations, we’ve known that for a long time,” says Michael Smith, a software engineer who played a key role in exposing the manipulation of global temperature data by NASA and NOAA.

Dr. Phil Kotzbach, a research scientist in Colorado State University’s Department of Atmospheric Science, says the professor’s statements are not particularly surprising.

Dr. Timothy Ball, a climatologist and former professor of geology at the University of Winnipeg, says Jones’ statements undermine the IPCC’s core thesis of anthropogenic global warming (AGW):

“Every single country has based its energy policies on a report that one of its lead authors is now saying is false,” Ball says.

Shortly after Jones’ BBC interview, Professor Peter Liss, now CRU's acting director, came to the defense of the beleaguered scientist, calling global warming skeptics “dangerous” and accusing them of “playing Russian roulette with the planet.”

“If you’re on the climate skeptics’ side, you have to have really good evidence for your case, because if you’re wrong, then the consequences for all of us and all our children and whoever comes after is hugely influenced.

“I don’t see that evidence. I see lots of assertion, but it’s not backed up. It’s very dangerous and like playing Russian roulette with the planet.”

Robert Felix, author of "Not by Fire but by Ice" and host of Ice Age Now, denounced Liss’ attack, citing it as further proof that “the entire CRU institution seems to be infected” with an intractable “we’re always right” mindset that is hostile towards anyone or anything that challenges official dogma.

“Professor Liss’ statement is incredible. He says we have to back our assertions. It’s time for them to back up theirs,” he demanded.
