Incompetence Or Fraud At USGS?

A classic study in government climate fraud.

The USGS is claiming that Glacier National Park is melting due to “global climate change” – predicting that some of the largest glaciers will be gone by 2030, and leaving a 100 year gap in information from 1910 to 2010.

there were approximately 150 glaciers present in 1850, and most glaciers were still present in 1910 when the park was established. In 2010, we consider there to be only 25 glaciers larger than 25 acres remaining in GNP.

I am filling in the gap for them. The glaciers melted so rapidly before 1950 (CO2 310 PPM) that experts predicted all of the glaciers would be gone by 2000.

The implication being that the fastest melt occurred when CO2 was very low. The melt has nothing to do with “climate change” or CO2.

The premise of the USGS article is fraudulent, and they enabled their fraud by failing to mention the critical details of the 1910 to 2010 timeline.

    On a hike to the Grinnell glacier in 1960 the ranger told us that the glacier would eventually disappear.

    Mt Baker and Glacier National park are not that far from each other (US guys can correct me)

    Here is an actual study done on the Mt Baker glaciers.

    And one of the graphs from that study (all graphs show similar cyclic behaviour)

    Personally as a climber I really liked places where glaciers disappeared. They help create scree. A bed of rocks, that if the rocks are not too big are like running down a hill of gravel but 100’s of yards/meters long. If you haven’t run down a long a reasonably deep scree field on a fairly steep slope of say 30 deg., then you have missed out on an incomparable experience. It’s one hell of a lot of fun and the fastest way you could ever get down such a slope on foot without falling or skiing down it. Of course boots are recommended for doing it. I have descended scree fields in which with a single bound I descended nearly 10′.

      Lots of fun, RAH, I have done it in the Tetons and also coming down one of the moraines in Westchester County NY as an 8 year old in sneakers. Just have to watch out for the copperheads.

    Back when Glacier National Park was truly national…

    The USGS knows better.

  5. Billy Liar says:

    Is there enough room for 150 x 25+ acre glaciers in the Park? Surely, it would be possible to show where they were because of their moraines, trim lines and rock discoloration?

    I demand a list of the missing glaciers!
