I'm not here to argue. However with climate change, warming/cooling whatever, can anyone tell me what the optimal world temperature should be? :shock:

My purpose in writing this thread is make people aware of the history of glacier recession in GNP since the end of the Little Ice Age. This history has been well documented by many sources. It concerns me that this history has been ignored by the Park, probably because it doesn't fit the politically popular narrative of human caused climate change. I'm not trying to litigate the climate change issue with this thread. However I do want the Park to tell the history of glacier recession as we know it, instead of promoting a political agenda.

Lets try and not make this a political thread in this section, discussing it is fine, but I don't want to have to move to the Politics of Glacier section.

Thanks.

Apparently the Park is removing signs that reference the glaciers disappearing by 2020 or 2030. Not suprising considering this info was removed from Park liturature last year. I will have to verify this story when I get out there.

@GNP Jim:

I do wish you had cited a source other than Daily Caller, which is in the thick of climate change denial.

From Wikipedia:
Also in 2017, The Daily Caller uncritically published a bogus Daily Mail story which claimed that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) manipulated data to make climate change appear worse; at the same time, legitimate news outlets debunked the Daily Mail story.[18][19][20] Also in 2017, The Daily Caller published a story claiming that a study found no evidence of accelerating temperatures over a 23-year period, which climate scientists described as a misleading story.[15] In 2016, The Daily Caller published a story claiming that climate scientist Michael Mann (director of the Earth System Science Center at Pennsylvania State University) had asserted that data was unnecessary to measure climate change; Mann described the story as "egregiously false".[21] In 2015, The Daily Caller wrote that NOAA "fiddle[d]" with data when the agency published a report concluding that there was no global warming hiatus.[22][23]

I am in favor of the Park ceasing its alarmist claims that the glaciers will be gone by X date.

Y'all need to give it up on this "climate change" issue.
It's never gonna get solved on these pages.

There is "science" supporting virtually any claim out there including most recently that the Loch Ness Monster might be real.

What ever side of this issue you are on, again, I will ask, one more time, discuss without political overtones.

Thank you.

Don't go if you don't want to. I've been going there for years, and have never gotten that warning.
I went there just now. It may have to do with each individual's virus software?

I've also gotten similar messages from logging into DaveParker's Glacier National Park Chat.
That warning comes because it is a "http.www" site and not a a "https.www" site.
Ask Dave.

Here is the same article republished on ZeroHedge, and "https" site:

Here's another climate change article that impacts glaciers.

Getting that warning has a lot to do with how you have your anti virus and your browser set up and how you actually access the internet, I was just able to access that website with no problems at all.
