    What the President Didn’t See From Alaska

    The Hubbard Glacier…which is actually growing.

    A quick trip to our coast would have been worthwhile. Next time! Yes, uneducated media, you can actually see Russia from here. Thar’ she is…

      The concept is if that ONE is growing it does not matter if dozens or more are not.... the one counteracts all the rest.

          Doesn't mean its growing just that the ice is reaching the sea faster (which would happen if its melting quicker) - it's how thick it is that really matters.

                Meanwhile, did anyone read the link?
                The pics are just teasers. The link mentions items of more economic impact that BHO may not have picked up on or ignored.

                  USGS, 2003...
                  Introduction

                  Hubbard Glacier, the largest calving glacier on the North American Continent (25 percent larger than Rhode Island), advanced across the entrance to 35-mile-long Russell Fiord (fig.1) during June 2002, temporarily turning it into a lake. Hubbard Glacier has been advancing for more than 100 years and has twice closed the entrance to Russell Fiord during the last 16 years by squeezing and pushing submarine glacial sediments across the mouth of the fiord (figs. 2 and 3). Water flowing into the cutoff fiord from mountain streams and glacier melt causes the level of Russell Lake to rise. However both the 1986 and 2002 dams failed (fig. 4) before the lake altitude rose enough for water to spill over a low pass at the far end of the fiord and enter the Situk River drainage, a world-class sport and commercial fishery near Yakutat, Alaska.

                  Glaciers are always advancing (positive mass balance) or retreating (negative mass balance ). Most alpine/valley glaciers didn’t exist until the Neoglaciation (~4,000 yrs ago). They advanced from the Holocene Climatic Optimum until the Little Ice Age and have generally been retreating since the mid 19th century. Glaciers and continental ice sheets aren't doing anything differently now, than they do naturally.

                    Glaciers are not static. They grow and shrink dependent on the amount of snow that piles up on them. And, they all shrink in late summer. Duh!

                      August in Alaska, how delightful!

                        100% wrong.

                        If it was "melting quicker," the ice front would be retreating away from the sea.

                        Hubbard Glacier has been advancing (growing) for over 100 years. It is a "calving glacier," it makes icebergs. It can't make icebergs if it isn't advancing.

                        "What matters" is mass balance... The ratio of the accumulation rate to the ablation rate. Hubbard's ice is accumulating faster than it is ablating.

                          I guess Maobama wishes that most glaciers were advancing rather than retreating...

                            Maobama didn’t see this either...



                            "Global warming" in Alaska occurred in one step-shift known as the Pacific Climate Shift of 1976. This was part of a 100% natural climatic oscillation.

                            Alaska has not warmed since 1977...

                              Glaciers can move through basal sliding "Another process by which glaciers move is basal sliding. With basal sliding, we see the entire glacier moves as a single unit due to melting at its base. Pressure at the base of the glacier causes a thin layer of ice to melt. This reduces friction, allowing the entire glacier to slide downslope" Recent research published by the University of Maine have indicated that the speed of slide in a warming period can increase by a factor of up to three
