Global warming is here!

Melting glaciers in Western Canada are revealing tree stumps up to 7,000 years old where the region's rivers of ice have retreated to a historic minimum, a geologist said today.


You know what this means, don't you?

The radiocarbon dates seem to be the same around the world, according to Koch. There have been many advances and retreats of these glaciers over the past 7,000 years, but no retreats that have pushed them back so far upstream as to expose these trees.

No retreats of the glacier have been this extreme!


Something seems wrong with this worry.

Let me see, the ice has retreated in a manner that is unprecedented? And underneath that ice there are ancient tree stumps? But this melting of ice has never happened before.


Well, the ice has never melted like this other than the time the ground was clear enough for the trees to grow in the first place.

So other than that time, this is unprecedented.

It's a wonder I'm not curled up in a fetal position, I suppose.
