The Little Ice Age ended about 1850. We had 150 glaciers here in 1900. We only have 25 left now.So, does Fagre attribute this change to human activity? Here's what the article says:
Fagre's own research doesn't distinguish between whether the warming is natural or manmade, although he personally believes that humans are causing at least some of it.Fagre sees "much natural variability in the climate system that still is not completely understood." That is the view we take here at COTTonLINE, too.
But he "gets nervous" when people try to attribute the root of all global warming to burning fossil fuels or land-use change. That's because, as he points out, there's just so much natural variability in the climate system that still is not completely understood.
