Skip to comments.5-mile-long landslide in Alaska national park; warming eyed as possible culprit
Posted on 07/13/2012 3:31:34 PM PDT by Sawdring
A massive landslide sent tons of rock and debris tumbling more than five miles down a glacier in Alaska, the National Park Service reported in an event that could be yet another sign of a warming world.
ocated in a remote area of Glacier Bay National Park, the slide was so big it registered on earthquake monitors as a magnitude 3.4 event.
Officials noticed the monitor blip on June 11 but it wasn't until July 2 that a pilot passing over the site took photos that showed just how large it was, Glacier Bay National Park announced on its Facebook page.

Warming?? I blame gravity. Curse you gravity to causing landslides and saggy boobs and making jumping off buildings hurt.
Funny thing is, it doesn’t appear to be ice. Looks to me like part of the peak broke away in a natural process called erosion.
The sciency folks might want to study up on it.
Get with the program bub. That’s MAN MADE gravity!
Oh for crying out loud.
Brilliant conclusion, we all know there's never been another occurence like this over the eons...../sarc
Okay, but are you sure this isn’t MAN MADE erosion.
I mean, come on folks. Don’t you care about the plant?
(...the National Park Service reported in an event that could be yet another sign of a warming world.)
I love the word “could”. How about: ...an event that could be yet another sign: of the end of the world; that God is angry; that Mother Nature is angry; that it’s Bush’s fault; that it’s Obama’s fault. In summary, it’s another sign of just about anything! See how easy it is to be a journalist? ...and all because of the word “could”!
>>Thats MAN MADE gravity!
Yeah. Man-made gravity, caused by all the stuff we make that is adding to the mass of the Earth! According to a Huffington Post story, 99% of all scientists agree! And if you don’t believe it, you hate puppies!
The first time in history part of a mountain has fallen downhill.
In 1958 the largest wave ever recorded was triggered by a huge landslide in the same region. Back in the 80’s I knew the guy who ended up owning one of the boats that survived.
I'd add that the ignorance is largely due to the political agendas of the current education establishment and the media. They jointly conspire to downplay any troublesome realities that stand in the way of their imagined Marxist Utopia.
What goes up, must come down. Since when does AGW have any effect on natural rock. When it’s interpreted by the socialist frauds at MSNBC
Minorities and children affected the most.
Federal Government: “Global Warming Deniers possibly liable for damages”
Rush had a kiddie caller today who said his class had an anti coal speaker to manipulate the kids away from the evils of coal.
And we all know that the “warming” is why we call it summer.
Thanks to fracking and cheap natural gas, power producers have already made a big switch away from coal.
