DOOMSDAY DELAY: National Parks Remove ‘Glaciers Gone by 2020’ Warning After ‘Heavy Snowfall’

posted by Hannity Staff - 6.07.19

The National Parks Service unceremoniously removed their infamous sign at the Visitors Center at Glacier National Park this week that warned tourists the glaciers will be ‘Gone by 2020’; citing several season of “heavy snow.”

“Glacier retreat in Glacier National Park speeds up and slows down with fluctuations in the local climate,” the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), which monitors Glacier National Park, told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

“Those signs were based on the observation prior to 2010 that glaciers were shrinking more quickly than a computer model predicted they would,” USGS told the DC. “Subsequently, larger than average snowfall over several winters slowed down that retreat rate and the 2020 date used in the NPS display does not apply anymore.”

“The overall picture remains the same, however, and that picture is that the glaciers all continue to retreat,” USGS said.

The Department’s decision comes weeks after Denver, Colorado saw the biggest late-spring snowfall in more than 44 years.

“As of 8 a.m. on Tuesday, Denver had officially received 3.4 inches of snow. That’s the most snow measured this late in the season since May 29, 1975 when 5.6 inches hit the city,” reports CBS Denver.

“In addition to the snow, Denver tied the record low temperature for May 21 when the official thermometer for the city dropped to 31 degrees Tuesday morning. It was previously 31 degrees on this date in 2001 when 1 inch of snow fell,” adds the website.

The sudden deep freeze is similar to another major snowstorm that slammed the Midwest in April.

“Even though spring may have sprung across much of the country, a major late-season winter storm is threatening to bring blizzard conditions to the Central U.S.,” reports Fox News.

“A blizzard my friends, in April, it’s happening across portions of South Dakota up towards Nebraska and then into Wisconsin,” said Fox News Senior Meteorologist. “We could see over a foot of snow and windy conditions and the potential for flooding ahead of this, some ice as well.”

The storm came on the heels of massive flooding across parts of Nebraska and beyond and could contribute to ongoing reconstruction efforts in the region.

BRAIN FREEZE: Al Gore Says Climate Change Cooling... THEN WARMING the Earth

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.02.18

Former Vice President and climate-change crusader Al Gore warned social media of another “ominous” heat record set in Oman over the weekend, just months after claiming global warming was -in fact- cooling the planet.

Gore posted the dire prediction on Twitter Saturday, saying “another ominous record” was smashed when the “overnight Low” in Oman reached a staggering 108.7 degrees.

“Another ominous record has been set. The city of Quriyat, Oman, hit an overnight LOW of 108.7 degrees on Tuesday – likely the highest minimum daily temp recorded on Earth,” Gore writes.

The former Vice President was touting another aspect of climate change just last winter, when he said the global crisis was creating record low temperatures throughout the United States.

“It’s bitter cold in parts of the US, but climate scientist Dr. Michael Mann explains that’s exactly what we should expect from the climate crisis,” he tweeted.

BRAIN FREEZE: Al Gore Says GLOBAL WARMING Behind Frigid Temps

Former Vice President Al Gore believes global warming is the main culprit behind the deep freeze taking hold across large sections of the United States, saying the frigid temperatures are “exactly what we should expect” from climate change.

The climate change champion posted his environmental theory on social media, baselessly claiming that “bitter cold in parts of the US” can be explained by global warming; linking to an article from a “climate scientist.”

“It’s bitter cold in parts of the US, but climate scientist Dr. Michael Mann explains that’s exactly what we should expect from the climate crisis,” he tweeted.

The article, “A ‘Perfect Storm’: Extreme Winter Weather, Bitter Cold, and Climate Change,” strangely suggests that while “The US East Coast is experiencing an ‘old-fashioned’ winter, with plenty of cold weather and some heavy snowfall in certain places,” its somehow connected to man-made pollutants.

“Yet, what we were witnessing play out is in fact very much consistent with our expectations of the response of weather dynamics to human-caused climate change,” the author states.

President Trump prompted a full-fledge media meltdown just days ago, when he jokingly tweeted the east coast of the US “could use a little bit of that good old Global Warming.”
