Are glaciers really growing?

Heard this once, from an old man who was a hermit who meditate for 23 hours a day in the desert and survived on sun gazing and breathing exercises and apparently he never poops.

He told me that the glaciers are actually growing on the earth so I had to look it up, I thought, with the global warming cataclysm approaching us in 100 years there's no way this is possible.

Crater Glacier Mt St Helens


Mount St. Helens, still steaming, holds the world’s newest glacier


New Zealand's Growing Glacier's


At least 58 New Zealand glaciers advanced between 1983 and 2008, with Franz Josef Glacier (Kā Roimata o Hine Hukatere) advancing nearly continuously during this time. Read more at: phys.org...


Alaska's Hubbard Glacier is Growing


For years, images of melting glaciers have been a big part of the climate change discussion. But there's one image released this week by NASA that shows one Alaskan glacier that might actually be growing.


Glacier's Growing in Pakistan


Experts say that more than 120 glaciers in Pakistan’s north are stable, or even growing rapidly, in a phenomenon called the “Karakoram Anomaly”.


Glacier's rapidly growing. Mere coincidence.

Rapid Growth of Arctic Sea Ice Continues


The extent of thick ice has doubled over the last ten years.


Doubled. Sea ice doubled in ten years. Yea you read that right.

Massive amounts of snow in Tahoe


California’s Squaw Valley ski resort, just west of Lake Tahoe, has been buried beneath more than 58 feet of snowfall this season. That’s enough snow to completely cover a five-story building.


NASA Antarctic Ice Sheet Growing


NASA Study: Mass Gains of Antarctic Ice Sheet Greater than Losses


South America worlds fastest growing glacier



The spectacles of Patagonia are truly remarkable. And there are not many places in this world, where a dream meets the reality. Located in southern America, Perito Moreno glacier is a science fiction dreamscape.


IFL Science



The previous Maunder Minimum occurred in the 17th century and lasted between 50 and 60 years. During this time, winters were colder: for example the River Thames, which usually flows through London, notoriously froze over. The ice was so thick that people could walk from one side to the other. However, the citizens that lived in freezing, 17th century Europe survived these cold winters, and they didn't have the heating technology that we are fortunate enough to have today. If the next solar activity minimum does affect the weather on Earth, it will not be deadly for the human race. Zharkova compared the Maunder Minimum with the one that her team predicted to occur around 15 years into the future. The next minimum will likely be a little bit shorter than the one in the 17th century, only lasting a maximum of three solar cycles (around 30 years).


This has been observed by many scientist from what I have read. We are now entering this period and it sure does look like things may be cooling off huh? But wait... the oceans are rising and everyone and everything is dying how is that possible?

What do you think? How is this going to affect things like the food supply? How can we migrate like they did last time? What about Canada? I hope you Canucks are ready for this!!

I would like to reiterate that this year where I live we had temperatures at -22 this year for over a week solid and I've never seen that here before but I'm young and that could mean nothing.

This is a great post.
However, you can't just go throwing a man who never poops in the first paragraph.

Now people don't care about glaciers.
They want to know more about the man who never poops.

India's fastest growing glacier is in South America?


Wow, these Indians are everywhere....like Apoo.

He said to me, "we are all the mind of god, everything is us and we are everything, and if you want to stop pooping stop eating and stare at the sun"

Great wisdom. Then he told me the ice age is near

"Zactly thank you. We must now know more about the sun gazing poopless man. And yes the glacier question is intriguing too.

I read somewhere some time ago that it was scientifically proven that there is always a high heat period before an ice age.

What we are basically doing is hpjust hurrying the process up. The chance is really high that there is an upcoming ice age. So it is possible glaciers to be growing.

Was the hermit claiming that he can undergo photosynthesis and that he trained his body to be 100% efficient?!?!

Yeah buddy!!! Squaw valley!!! That's my mountain. While it's true they got plenty of snow, 58 feet is a bit of a lie. That's a total of the best possible estimation. Kinda like, batteries lasting for 48 hours. They take the highest numbers in their tests and use that as their standard.

Either way Tahoe is looking better than it has. Problem is, two good seasons does not set a trend. I still need more evidence either way. I don't subscribe to nor do I dismiss the "climate change" hype.
In any case, thanks for the Squaw high light. Love that resort.

Short Answer, Yes. Fact.

In Government and MSM world. No, the opposite.

Remember! Keep them scared.

Short answer, no.
Glaciers are receding across the Earth.

A few glaciers do not follow this trend, for whatever reason; most glaciers do.

Longer answer, some are growing and most are shrinking. 7/9 of the links are emphatically clear about most glaciers receding. The few that are growing (regional climate variability) are away from the poles in Argentina, Pakistan and NZ.

Sounds like he practiced dry fasting. It was more common back then, but let me tell you it's so much easier than water.

Regarding the Glaciers melting, I tend to believe the opposite. For example, a mini iceage. (if you believe that's coming which I do).

Good post though!

Wait. Hold up.

I just want you to know that if ATS had something like a "Post of the Week" contest, You'd have my vote, hoss.

Now. Yes, I'm aware that from a strict "tangibility" standpoint, this ranks right up there with:
"Dude, if I had a million dollars, I would split it with you", but it came straight from the heart, and I want you to know that, OK?

That being said, I have to disagree.

I'm a firm believer in negotiating from a position of power. So, at least as I see it, if there's even a remote chance that you are gonna play the "Man who never poops" card, I think it just goes without saying that you open with it. You just throw it down from the start, you know?

That way, the reader is completely hooked from the beginning.
Just sayin'.

Back to your regularly scheduled program.

At least from what I've read, I'd have to agree with Kandi, that some are growing, but most are shrinking.

As for how that plays out in the greater scheme of things, I don't think ANYONE has enough solid data to make anything other than a guess, considering the time scale involved. Earth's climate is a MINDBOGGLINGLY complex system, with checks, balances, and variables that have developed over BILLIONS of years.

From what I have seen during MY lifetime, it's pretty much a 50/50 bet as to what's gonna happen TOMORROW, much less over decades.

Seen in the same region and mountains as Mt. St. Helen's newest glacier, receding:

“The trend is very bad for glaciers,” Riedel said. “In general, glaciers in the North Cascades have lost 40 percent of their ice over the past 150 years, roughly. And in the last 40 years, they’ve lost about 13 percent".

Source


In the same OP article posted on the Crater Glacier Mt St Helens/Mt. St. Helen's glacier the page title is "St. Helens’ Crater Glacier is growing when most glaciers around the world are shrinking." The articles goes on to explain how nothing is typical about it compared to other glaciers.

if you draw a circle around the globe with chicago as its balance point it is getting warmer/plants and crop season tells the truth. Anyway, my point here is to tell you all , in Japan the climate is warming up and going north. The oysters are moving north,that should tell you something about the oceans and weather warming up.

Lucky for the OP that he caught the hermit on his one hour break! Double lucky the hermit was a little-known world expert on glaciers.

23 hours in desert sun probably left his bowels as parched as beef jerky. Poke his belly and dust blows out of his ass.

It does not matter, the only thing that matters and is a threat, is pollution. This will destroy many species and entire ecosystems.

Sorry, have to take half of my words back, i suspect the hermie thing might be a natural thing after all,
carry on.
