I visited this glacier in 1975 and again in 2008. The rate of glacial retreat has accelerated. The distance to walk to get to the lip has receded approx half a kilometer. There are still naysayers about the true impact of humans on global warming, but glacier volume reduction worldwide cannot be argued.
"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."
