Since I was blogging about Minnesota geology and glaciers, I thought it might be appropriate to link to the website of my uncle the glaciologist. His site has some amazing, and alarming, information that we all ought to be aware of. In particular, this statement: " The statement “glaciers are sensitive to the climate” was made countless times in published articles and the presentations we made throughout the 1960s-1970s, but little did we know just how sensitive they were. The now impending demise of many of them suggests glaciers are much more sensitive to the earth’s climate than are humans. We should have heeded their warning signals long ago. "
