These eco-soothsayers are a joke…
In 2010, he told CNN that Grinnell Glacier was “this little dirty glacier that seems to be obviously falling apart, that has become very tiny and decrepit”.
“This one is on its last legs,” he insisted.
But Grinnell Glacier refuses to die. Instead it appears to have been growing.
The photos warning that the glaciers are shrinking are the work of Fagre and Lisa McKeon, who has a BA in Zoology. Neither of the two glacier experts, so often quoted in the media, have geology degrees.
But Fagre is the doomsayer most likely to predict the end of all the glaciers in Glacier. That’s why he and the media were outraged that the “area’s top climate scientist” wasn’t able to “share his expertise on global warming’s role in the retreating ice sheets” with Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg.
GLACIERS ARE OUTLIVING THE ENVIRONMENTALIST WHO PREDICTED THEIR DOOM
Won’t someone save the environmentalists?
“This August I visited Glacier National Park in Montana,” Gianna Kelly, the founder of Climb for Conservation, wrote in the Huffington Post. “I am still stunned to have learned the following fact: by 2020, no glaciers will exist in Glacier National Park.”
Kelly, who had worked for the White House Council on Environmental Quality, wrote that back in the first year of the Obama administration. It might stun her more to learn that Obama is out of the White House and that the glaciers of Glacier National Park are still there and waiting to be visited.
Throughout the Obama era, visitors to Glacier National Park were frequently harangued with false claims that the glaciers would all be gone in a decade. These warnings decorated dioramas and trash cans even as the hysterical propaganda become more ridiculous with every passing year.
The snow lay heavy on Logan Pass, when I arrived in July 2017. Visitors stomped through thick snow to reach the Hidden Lake Overlook. The alpine meadows of the Hanging Gardens didn’t live up to their name. Instead of the wildflowers that most visitors expected, there were nearly endless fields of white. Mountain goats, unaware that they were threatened by the supposed rising temperatures that were warming Glacier’s glaciers into extinction, eyed us suspiciously as we tried not to slip on the ice.
Sperry Glacier, a frequent target for environmentalist doommongers, was still there in the distance.
