Actually, we’re in for a decades long (if not longer) cold spell. It’s supposed to be taking hold in another year or so, but some of the effects are felt now.

There are no glaciers anymore, thanks to white men in SUVs. And even if there are, they are retreating. Truly the facts of this story conflict with computer models, which are never wrong.

Debris lobes only exist in cold climates where the water inside a mass of dirt and rocks freezes. It behaves like a glacier and can move. If the ice were to melt, the movement would stop and it would behave like a mound.

Ship all the SUVs to Alaska. This ice must be melted and Alaska should return to normal tropical temperature.

That movie scared the bejeebers out of me the first time I saw it. (I think I was about 6)

For some reason, I still remember the title.

Nice pic. Crap...looks like a challenging road to re-route, not to mention the pipeline itself, although it is puttering out since the DEMOCRATS wouldn’t let us drill ANWR.

Those old “B” movies are great to watch - especially when they are “riffed” by the MST3K crowd.

Looks to me like a glacier, only on a small scale?

So they should set the trees on fire ?
