Zinke: "The glacier receded during lunch"

Confirmation hearing for Ryan Zinke, nominee for the US Department of Interior.
Bernie Sanders: "Is climate change a hoax?"

Ryan Zinke: "Climate is changing. That's undisputable. I'm from Glacier National Park. When my family and I ate lunch over a glacier...the glacier receeded during lunch."
Another clip.

I was probably at that glacier a few years ago. It's in southern Glacier National Park near the main road. The recession is dramatic. When I was there, there was a bare area a couple of miles long that had once been covered by glacier. The bare area is probably a lot larger now.
