CNN Headline: Glaciers disappearing from Kilimanjaro

But what they don’t tell you is there is a record amount of ice in Antarctica.  And, by the way, the earth has actually been COOLING for the last decade.  I guess these goobers didn’t get the memo.

Perhaps this is Mother Nature’s version of the Obama economic plan.  She is “redistributing the wealth” of the ice around the world.


Glaciers disappearing from Kilimanjaro

By Azadeh Ansari, CNN

(CNN) — The ice and snow that cap majestic Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania are vanishing before our eyes.

If current conditions persist, climate change experts say, Kilimanjaro’s world-renowned glaciers, which have covered Africa’s highest peak for centuries, will be gone within the next two decades.

“In a very real sense, these glaciers are being decapitated from the surface down,” said Lonnie Thompson, professor of earth sciences at Ohio State University. Thompson is co-author of a study on Kilimanjaro published Monday in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

The study’s authors blame the disappearing ice on increases in global temperatures and diminished snowfall at Kilimanjaro’s summit.  (Diminished snowfall I might buy, but as I mentioned above it would appear that the good professor either didn’t get or chose to ignore the memo that it has been PROVEN that global temperatures have actually been falling for the last decade.  But I’m sure the good professor won’t let a trivial thing like facts or truth stand in the way of his liberal agenda.)

  1. There might be global warming or cooling but the important issue is whether we, as a human race, can do anything about it.

    There are a host of porkies and not very much truth barraging us everyday so its difficult to know what to believe.

    I think I have simplified the issue in an entertaining way on my blog which includes some issues connected with climategate and “embarrassing” evidence.

    In the pipeline is an analysis of the economic effects of the proposed emission reductions. Watch this space or should I say Blog

    PS The term “porky” is listed in the Australian Dictionary of Slang.( So I’m told.)
