GASP!: Glaciers gone by 2050

The BS scare tactics and propaganda aimed squarely at indoctrinating the zombies in our society are unceasing. This study was brought to you by the same fanatics who brought you such memorable fear treatises as:

...the list is unending and quite ridiculous!

Ice melt predictions are a common alarmist tactic, but don’t fall for it. The climate cyclically fluctuates; history has shown us this clearly, and we’re currently in a cooling trend that followed a warming trend. Ice does melt but it also reforms in the cool seasons. Global mean temperatures have not warmed since 1998, while CO2 levels have continued higher; this is fairly convincing evidence to all but the staunchest of cult members that the very core of the global warming theory is flawed, junk science.

My prediction? The Pyrenees glaciers will not be gone by 2050. Let’s look at other failed predictions of alarmists, and don’t forget the predictions of doom yet to come—from Prince Charles’ portent of doom to Al Gore’s to the Nobel Dodo’s. We’re all going to be just fine. You’ll see...

Other media fear pieces can be read at the warmlist and in the GASP! series.

Study: Pyrenees Glaciers May Be Gone by 2050:

The crisp, white glaciers of the Pyrenees, the mountain range along the border between France and Spain, have substantially receded in the past 15 years and could disappear by 2050 due to global warming, a new study suggests.

The retreat of glaciers in Greenland and areas like Glacier National Park have been well-documented, but less well-studied are the situations of alpine glaciers around the world.

Researchers at the University of Cantabria, the Autonomous University of Madrid and the University of Valladolid compiled data from current and historic studies of the glaciers in the high mountain regions of the Iberian Peninsula to gauge how climate change has affected these icy behemoths.

"High mountains are particularly sensitive areas to climate and environmental changes, and how glaciers evolve there in response to climate change is one of the most effective indicators of current global warming," said study leader Juan José González Trueba.
