Well, there is no doubt that the glaciers at glacier national park are not what they used to be.What are some predictive successes that the science has had?
As an example - some right-wing sites recently pointed out that Glacier National Park had removed signage telling patrons that a glacier or glaciers would be gone by 2020. Apparently, there were models based on the science that predicted that. But it turns out to not have been true. Now the signs say the glacier will be gone at some undetermined time in the future if we don't act.
Maybe they missed the rate of loss, but we hiked to Iceberg lake around 1999 and again in 2015, and the glacier was much smaller, both Trips were in August.
The people should be much more concerned about whether or not the glaciers are smaller than at any time in recorded history than whether or not a sign was correct.
