Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
  1. Beyond what nanne says about the supposed claim of all glaciers receding, I don't understand why Roger Pielke Sr. didn't further consider the stark regional differences. Could it be that local geologic features ensure a 'heat insulation' for glaciers there? Say, shielding by the South Shetland Islands?

  2. Why does the ratio of glacier surface loss to total glacier area matter? The way I understand it, the mass loss of a glacier is in significant part thinning, not just shortening.
