The Gorner Glacier

Recommended Posts

Very interesting, but it does annoy me how it's impossible to have an article like that without referencing global warming and trying to tell us the whole thing is about to melt or slide down the mountain as never before.We know glaciers are currently retreating, as they have been doing since the Little Ice Age ended.Just last night there was a somewhat interesting BBC 4 programme about the Himalayas but you could hear the audio additions where several extra snippets about how everything was now threatened by warming and melting had been inserted, because the original narrative was not sufficiently laced with AGW alarmism.Absolutely sickening propaganda, I turned it off.

I'm sorry I posted it now but thought it might interest some people. I can't see any AGW propoganda in this at all but it's easily deleted if it offends some people.

 

I'm getting a tad fed up with all this. The point of the post was basically the stunning photography which wouldn't have been possible without the melting and the moulins and ice-caves. Pathetic.

Such a pity I would have loved to have seen it - remember Knocker, you can't please all the people all the time.

Very true Mike but it's quite incredible that one can't discuss the subject of the fantastic moulins and ice-caves, which wouldn't exist without meltwater, without the AGW police exhibiting their usual paranoia. Anyway I'll post the link to the photos leaving out the facts regarding the glacier posted by the photographer in this months Geographical Magazine. Wouldn't want the police to have another seizure. Reminds one of the MaCarthy era.

Fantastic Knocker, they bring out the otherwise secret world of a glacier out into the open - mind you, sooner them than me - such expeditions can't be without hazard with the ice moving - so cold as well but what else would you expect? :)
