Obama Plans To End The Interglacial

EPA chief warns against climate change on visit to Alaska glacier

PORTAGE GLACIER, ALASKA — As she marveled at the site of a shrinking Alaska glacier, the newly installed leader of the Environmental Protection Agency said Monday that the president told her that fighting climate change should be her primary focus.

“The president’s main priority for me was to recognize when I was coming in here that this is going to be a significant challenge and one in which the administration was going to begin to tackle,” said EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy.

Only a complete imbecile (i.e. Barack Obama) would believe that he could stop interglacial processes which have been going on for 20,000 years.

As you enter Glacier Bay in Southeast Alaska you will cruise along shorelines completely covered by ice just 200 years ago.

Explorer Captain George Vancouver found Icy Strait choked with ice in 1794, and Glacier Bay was barely an indented glacier. That glacier was more than 4000 ft. thick, up to 20 miles or more wide, and extended more than 100 miles to the St.Elias Range of mountains.

By 1879 naturist John Muir found that the ice had retreated 48 miles up the bay. By 1916 the Grand Pacific Glacier headed Tarr inlet 65 miles from Glacier Bay’s mouth.

    Coworker just got back from there…they were told the glaciers are advancing. Because of climate change, of course!

    “Only a complete imbecile”……..says it all.
    “Fighting Climate Change”………since when has climate change joined the “axis of evil”?

    Looks like McCarthy is going to be dumber than Jackson!

  6. What gives Obama the power to command the EPA? Anybody remember that old yarn about “checks and balances”?

    Was just up at Glacier Bay three weeks ago. Beautiful place. From the Glacier Bay Brochure:
    “At Glacier Bay you can witness geologic processes and change usually barely noticed in the span of a human life. Compare this diagram with the 1680 Huna Tlingit scene on the other side. There was no Glacier Bay then, only a broad valley with a glacier moving down it.” The diagram shows the bottom third of what is now Glacier Bay was broad valley. The Little Ice Age was pretty dam cold.
