Having spent significant time at Glacier National Park, I can tell you without question, the glaciers quickly disappearing.

You came to know this...how? Did you personally poll the visitors or did someone else?

We solved climate change by removing a sign. Brilliant.

What makes you think we were able measure the Earth's surface temperature to within a degree (C) a century ago?

I don't know about you, but we seem to be doing better as a species today than we did in 1910 even after apparently 75% of the glaciers at Glacier National Park have melted.
I take it you don't live in an area that depends on glaciers for drinking water, millions of people in South America and Asia depend on it and I doubt they will be "fine".

I recommend anyone who has ever wanted to visit Glacier giddyup and do it pretty soon, because regardless of the cause, the glaciers are definitely shrinking.
Teams from Lysander Spooner University visiting the Park each September have noted that GNP’s most famous glaciers such as the Grinnell Glacier and the Jackson Glacier appear to have been growing—not shrinking—since about 2010.

Another failed prediction that was presented as fact to all who visited the park. Time to move the goalposts again.

Funny how the "science deniers" always end up being right.
