Hubbard Glacier has been advancing into Disenchantment Bay for more than 100 years, according to NASA’s Earth Observatory. In addition to its forward movement, the glacier has been thickening as well.
This must be shocking news for weather.com, which likes to beat the global-warming drum.
It’s interesting to see how they tried to temper the news by switching the focus to Glacier National Park in Montana. They mention the EPA and then, in the same paragraph, quote the National Resources Defense Council, which warns that “if the current pace of retreat continues, Glacier National Park in Montana will be glacier-free by 2070.”
By mentioning both entities in the same paragraph it almost looks as if the National Resources Defense Council might be an official government resource. It is not. It prides itself on being “the nation’s most effective environmental action group.”
