As Karakorum Glacier Stability Puzzles Global Warming Experts, The Scientific Excuses Start To Fly

Share this…FacebookTwitterGoogle+emailAwhile back a number of scientists hopped on the bandwagon claim that the Himalayan glaciers would be gone by the year 2030. That claim was quickly exposed as being preposterous and so the red-faced scientists backed off and said they had in fact meant the year 2300. Today that figure as well is also looking […]
