"However, I have noticed BIG differences between glaciers I saw in the 1955, and what they were in 1995 in Europe. The same is true of glaciers I saw in Alaska in 1980 and 2008. HUGE shrinkage and recession from former locations."
Of course, glaciers have been receding for quite a long time, since the Little Ice Age in particular. For instance, The Mendenhall glacier in Alaska has been receding since the late 1700's and at a rate of about 25-30 feet per year. Natural cycles continue.
