  • But that’s about the local temperature of the year, it says nothing about the glaciers shrinking or expanding, also if glaciers are shrinking, wouldn’t we lose some readings? I mean if the glacier this year is smaller than last year, means that we have lost at least one year readings (most likely much more than that), not to mention that it contradicts that ice gets deposited every year.

    It is my understanding that glaciers expand and shrink seasonally every year, and lately the expansion (if any) is always smaller than the shrinking, but it is a trend that started more than 100y ago (basically since when we started keeping record) and has been accellerating, because of this how can you extrapolate when to start dating in reverse? If you never saw a the, let’s call it inflationary phase, how do you know when it reversed? The error might be small… or not

    Is there an error in my reasoning (or my assumptions)? Consider that I am not the only one having this doubts.


  • anyhow do you know the answer? Because I’d have a ton of questions, since the argument is complex and I don’t like the hand-wavy argument “well he expert say so”

    Experts, scientists, luminaries in their field were prescribing lobotomies to mentally ills and castrations to gay people less than 100 years ago, so yes please always listen to the experts, but keep doubting their answers

    Well reread what I wrote and what you wrote, I think it’s pretty obvious

    From saying “if it was shrinking before it might not be related too human activities” you went full “how are you alive in 2024…” And answered as if I was denying the god revealed truth

    That’s a Taliban mentality at work, you don’t discuss the truth

    If you can’t see it, I can’t show it to you

    BTW do you have the power to ban me? If you don’t then, what are you discussing about silencing and banning?

    Can you elaborate a bit?

    I know that some icers on the Alps have been shrinking since the last 120 years (more or less since we started measuring them) a bit too early IMO for humans to be the cause, yet the melting has significantly accelerated in the last 30-40 years (which is likely to be correlated to human activities)
