Andes glaciers have shrunk by up to 50 per cent

Climate change has shrunk Andean glaciers between 30 and 50 per cent since the 1970s.

If the glaciers disappear in the Andes, hundreds of thousands of people will be left without drinking water.
If the glaciers disappear in the Andes, millions of people will be left without drinking water.

Many of the glaciers in the Andes Mountains in South America could melt altogether in coming years, according to a study published in the journal Cryosphere.

Andean glaciers, a vital source of fresh water for tens of millions of South Americans, are retreating at their fastest rates in more than 300 years, according to the most comprehensive review of Andean ice loss so far.

The study included data on about half of all Andean glaciers in South America, and blamed the ice loss on an average temperature spike of 1.26F (0.7C) over the past 70 years.

“Glacier retreat in the tropical Andes over the last three decades is unprecedented,” said Antoine Rabatel, the lead author of the study and a scientist with the Laboratory for Glaciology and Environmental Geophysics in Grenoble, France.

My comment:

The Bible is crystal clear on the topic of spectacular events, as we approach the return of the Messiah.  The spectacular events will be followed by terrible catastrophes.

In Bolivia, the disappearance of the glaciers will be fatal. The dry mountain nation will simply run out of drinkable water.
For the tropical zone in South America, more liquid water in the atmosphere will also turn out to be disastrous.

The weather is turning freaky, and the time between the disasters are shorter and shorter.  Just like the sequences of pain felt by a pregnant woman about to give birth.

For all who do not read the Bible, panic will be the first fruits of their lack of knowledge.  People will faint when they understand what kind of calamities that is striking the Earth.

 Luke 21:26

Men will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken.

We who know the Messiah, have nothing to fear. Jesus has paid in full for our sins. We will be gathered by angles from the out corners of the Earth, and taken into safety in the Kingdom of Heaven.

Let all the followers of Jesus rejoice, for what the Lord has done. I hope and pray that millions of pagans will get them selves a Bible, as they hunger for the knowledge needed for salvation. Amen.

One thought on “Andes glaciers have shrunk by up to 50 per cent

  1. “New estimates from a Norwegian research project show meeting targets for minimizing global warming may be more achievable than previously thought.

    After the planet’s average surface temperature rose through the 1990s, the increase has almost leveled off at the level of 2000, while ocean water temperature has also stabilized, the Research Council of Norway said in a statement on its website. After applying data from the past decade, the results showed temperatures may rise 1.9 degrees Celsius if Co2 levels double by 2050, below the 3 degrees predicted by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

    “The Earth’s mean temperature rose sharply during the 1990s,” said Terje Berntsen, a professor at the University of Oslo who worked on the study. “This may have caused us to overestimate climate sensitivity.”

    The findings also show the effect of reduced airborne particulates from burning coal, which may decrease the cloud cover that cools the earth, probably has less of an impact on climate through indirect cooling than originally projected.”

    Praise God, our prays are being answered. God has stopped the climate change. Genesis 8:22 ESV “While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, shall not cease.”

    John 3:16 ESV “For God so loved the world(that he made), that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.”
    Puny men think that they control the climate. God laughs at them.
