Factual evidence gets in the way:
Greenland's glaciers have been shrinking for 100 years: studyNow I know this flies in the face of everything you learned from Al Gore. But Crazy Al will push on just the same. Science be damned!
Greenland's glaciers have been shrinking for the past century, according to a Danish study, suggesting that the ice melt is not a recent phenomenon caused by global warming.
Danish researchers from Aarhus University studied glaciers on Disko island, in western Greenland in the Atlantic, from the end of the 19th century until the present day.
Using maps from the 19th century and current satellite observations, the scientists were able to conclude that "70 percent of the glaciers have been shrinking regularly since the end of the 1880s at a rate of around eight meters per year," [glaciologist Jacob Clement] Yde said. (link)
