Someone needs to help me here with the exact numbers -- but I took my family on a trip to the Canadian Rockies several years ago and we walked out to the Athabasca ice fields and glacier. They have monuments in the ground to show how much the ice has been melting and receding for many years. Help me here -- is it about 150 or 160 years or so? At any rate, the ice has been melting steadily for a long time, and long before automobiles started making greenhouse gasses.
Why let the facts get in the way of a good story.
