photos illustrate what park experts say could mean dramatic changes to its ecosystem.
"How much of (the glacier loss) is a natural cycle and how much is human-caused is a complex issue,"
says Schuster, who notes recent estimates that the park's last glacier could vanish within 10 to 20 years.
The planet is cooking itself to

"Global warming is a hoax!"
He's right - those melting glaciers are LYING!
