Glacial retreats

A guest post at WUWT on glaciers elicited some (im)pertinent comments. Eg:

How glaciers have responded to the warming of the past 13,000 years is a complicated story, …
… would have been a less biased starting point, since the glaciers have been retreating since at least that far back. If they hadn’t, it would be rather difficult to drop the ball in Time Square on New Year’s Eve.

Would we really want to live in a period of time where glaciers were growing?

The glaciers were growing during the 1960s and 70s and it was "all our fault", due to all the aerosols and particulates we were emitting. So our great sin is actually that we have not managed to keep the climate stable. Let's call this the Goldilocks Delusion.

Heh. Good one, Halfwise. "The Goldilocks Delusion" says it all.
