Several months ago, The News Tribune featured an in-depth article about the shrinking glaciers on Mount Rainier, endorsing the “scientific theory” that most of this problem is manmade. More recently the TNT has printed an article about shrinking glaciers at Mount Adams and Mount Hood in Oregon.
Why don’t the media pay any attention to the “other view”? Numerous scientists explain that we are experiencing “climate change” and that man is not necessarily totally to blame.
For the past 21 years a glacier has been growing at Mount St Helens and has encapsulated the dome. It is estimated to be 600 feet thick and is continuing to grow northward. I can only assume that since Mount St Helen’s advancing glacier doesn’t fit the global warming theory, this story is deliberately ignored.
When the Mount St Helen’s Visitor’s Center opens next spring, take time to visit and listen to the ranger’s informative talk. I visit often and have yet to hear anything mentioned about the advancing glacier. I purposely ask the question to ensure those in attendance hear some glacier facts that the global warming “experts” don’t mention.
