Why do glaciers retreat?

I only have 1 point.. They’re melting. As the ends break off and melt, the glacier gets shorter.

Answer #1

Glaciers melt because of climate warming.

And because of the “Albedo effect” That is: If there is ice, there is white surface. The white surface reflects sunlight –> place cold. If there is no ice, sunlight shines on darker surfaces, such as Rock –> place warms up –> more ice melts –> more dark surface –> place warm up more –> and so on.

Answer #2

The global warming.
