Some pretty pictures of snow and ice that allegedly prove global warming
I am not going to reproduce any of the pictures as it is just typical Leftist cherry-picking. You can pick pictures to show almost anything. It is statistics you need if you are to generalize. And, overall, polar ice has been INCREASING.
So how come all the pretty pictures? Mainly because glaciers are always changing -- mostly in response to precipitation. Glaciers that are getting more snowfall than usual will be advancing and glaciers getting less will be retreating. And there are always glaciers doing both. The Franz Josef glacier in New Zealand is a good example. Up unti a few years ago was notable for its rapid advance. Now it is retreating.
Kilimanjaro is another example. Once it was almost bare of snow but it has since bounced back. And it's only at the stage that suits their religion did the Warmists mention either of them
And their deception is not even clever. For Kilimanjaro they show a comparison between 1993 and 2000. But what about 2016? For that see below:
More snow than ever. That shows you how they operate. They are arrant crooks
And their logic is very strange. Their two pictures of flooding in Australia were taken only two months apart. So does that prove global warming? Did drastic warming happen over just two months? Hardly. All they show is that Australia's floods are short-lived, which all Australians know. Our chronic problem is drought
I guess I could go on to dismantle all their trickery but I am not going to give any more time to gross propaganda. Just some of their text excerpted below. Click SOURCE to see the pictures
They have been locked in ice for hundreds, if not thousands of years, but newly released images have revealed just how fast the landscapes of Antarctica and the Arctic have changed.
The incredible pictures, released by Nasa, show how melting, and flooding, have transformed iconic landscapes around the world.
While some of the images, taken years apart, reveal long-term impacts that have been attributed to climate change, others show changes on a shorter scale due to shifting seasons or storms.
The shocking image comparisons are perhaps at their most dramatic when picturing the glaciers in Alaska.
An image taken in the summer 1917 of the Pederson Glacier shows mountains of ice floating in water. Yet, a photograph taken in the same spot in 2005 shows green pastures and a sparse covering of snow and ice in the surrounding hills.
In another pair of images taken of Northwestern Glacier, in Alaska, almost all the ice can be seen to have melted within just 65 years. In the summer of 1940, the glacier glacier can be seen snaking down from the peaks into the water, where chunks of ice float.
By summer 2005, the picture is completely different. Where once there was white snow and ice, the dark grey and black of the rock, with the occasional hint of green vegetation, dominates while the water is completely clear. Just a few hints of snow remain hidden among the highest peaks in the distance.
The ice and snow on the top of Africa's tallest peak, Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, can be seen disappearing. On the left shows a thick cap of snow on February 17, 1993 and on the right it has reducted in February 21, 2000 Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa
Southern Australia, October 9, 2010Flooding in southern Australia December 12, 2010. A series of thunderstorms led to flooding in southern Australia in 2010 affecting 200,000 people. The left image was taken on October 9, 2010 while the image on the right was taken December 12, 2010
Other images show dramatic changes caused by flooding and fire, urban development and deforestation.
