Mount Everest is becoming increasingly dangerous to climb because global warming is melting glacier ice along its slopes, according to a Nepalese Sherpa who has conquered the world’s highest summit 20 times.
Rising temperatures have melted much of the ice on the steep trail to the summit and climbers are struggling to get traction on the exposed rock surface, according to the 49-year-old Sherpa, known only as Apa.
Warmists latched on to this story as more "proof" of their favorite topic, AGW. But not since the Gulf Oil spill allowed BHO to ban any offshore drilling for six month has a story been so plagued by bad timing.
A 13-year-old American boy, Jordan Romero, has become the youngest person ever to climb Mount Everest, setting a new but controversial world record.
President Eisenhower other famous warning
Liberal love to quote President Eisenhower and his famous warning about the military industrial complex. But he also issued another warning which seems appropo with all the scientists falling in line behind the idea of global warming.
Former President Dwight Eisenhower warned of this grave danger in his farewell address to the nation on January 17, 1961:
“The prospect of domination of the nation’s scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present – and is gravely to be regarded.”
Another Scientific Organization Fudges the Data
In March, [CSIRO] joined with the Bureau of Meteorology to produce a "snapshot of the state of the climate to update Australians about how their climate has changed and what it means". Although the pamphlet had a neutral title, "State of the Climate", it was clearly designed to bring the great weight of the apparent credibility of these two organisations to bear against, and hopefully crush, those pesky climate change sceptics.
The problem that exists was discovered by Tom Quirk who noticed on the graphs in the pamphlet that while the plot of CO2 went to the year 2000, the plot for Methane Gas stops at 1990. It seems Methane stopped going up on the mid 1990s yet here is the CSIRO, the organisation dedicated to scientific truth, pretending -- even stating -- that they're still going up, Climategate style.
