In 2009, we were all told that the Himalayas were melting at an exponentially dangerous rate and would disappear altogether by 2035.
General panic ensued until scientists realized they had made a mistake and republished the findings. The snow-capped mountain range wasn’t going to be gone by 2035, they clarified, but 2350.
Everybody makes mistakes though, so most people were willing to go right back to drinking the Kool-Aid in their end-is-nigh tie-dye shirts after that little mix-up. If anything, global warming alarmists got even more fired up about doing Mother Nature’s work: scaring people out of their hard-earned earnings and God-given liberties under a message of repentance and reprisal.
Only it’s just come out that another mistake has been made… on top of the one announced last week, which involved a blatant admission that the world hasn’t actually warmed in the last 10 years and that we might even be facing a mini ice age…
Now on top of that we learn that, according to a brand new study based off of satellite technology, the Himalayans haven’t melted in the last 10 years.
Double (or triple) oops! How embarrassing!
Yet global warming “scientists” aren’t embarrassed at all. They’re not deterred and they’re not giving even the slightest hint of an apology to all of the people they terrified, swindled and bullied. Instead, they insist that this changes nothing.
“Our results and those of everyone else show we are losing a huge amount of water into the oceans every year,” Professor John Wahr of the University of Colorado assures. “People should be just as worried about the melting of the world’s ice as they were before.”
And according to the UK’s Guardian, “The scientists are careful to point out that lower-altitude glaciers in the Asian mountain ranges… are definitely melting… But over the study period from 2003-10 enough ice was added to the peaks to compensate.”
So in other words, the earth is going through cycles. Like it normally does. Which is why it oftentimes snows in the winter and gets hot in the summer… and why there are freak occurrences from time to time where the climate doesn’t behave how we expect it to.
But if the global warming alarmists admitted aby of those particuarly obvious facts, they wouldn’t be able to own anybody’s minds and pocketbooks. And where’d be the fun in that?
