NATIONAL PARK QUIETLY REMOVED WARNING THAT GLACIERS ‘WILL ALL BE GONE’ BY 2020 AFTER YEARS OF HEAVY SNOWFALL
By Michael Bastasch

The National Park Service (NPS) quietly removed a visitor center sign saying the glaciers at Glacier National Park would disappear by 2020 due to climate change.

As it turns out, higher-than-average snowfall in recent years upended computer model projections from the early 2000s that NPS based its claim glaciers “will all be gone by the year 2020,” federal officials said.

“Glacier retreat in Glacier National Park speeds up and slows down with fluctuations in the local climate,” the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), which monitors Glacier National Park, told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

“Those signs were based on the observation prior to 2010 that glaciers were shrinking more quickly than a computer model predicted they would,” USGS said. “Subsequently, larger than average snowfall over several winters slowed down that retreat rate and the 2020 date used in the NPS display does not apply anymore.”

  1. Hey Use that comic But Dems, AOC Pelosi Omar pics in it
    Climiate Change (ozone layer) meaning their heads are in
    It will change back to the Republicans

  2. Well it will get colder before the warming trend
    We will be frozen to death before True globeble warming starts

    • Which is why they’re calling it climate change. That way they have all the bases covered. Because…I mean…the climate has always been static and unchanging…right?

  3. I do believe man can cause warming trends. I raised my thermostat up and by golly it is warmer in my house.
