Skip to comments.Surpise! Glaciers appearing in Scotland

British Botanists conducting a Summer survey of Scotlands tallest mountain, Ben Nevis, have been stunned to find evidence of recently formed multi-year ice fields, areas of compacted snow, some of which weigh hundreds of tons.
According to the BBC;
Hazards common in arctic and alpine areas but described as extremely unusual in the UK during the summer have been found on Ben Nevis.
A team of climbers and scientists investigating the mountains North Face said snowfields remained in many gullies and upper scree slopes.
On these fields, they have come across compacted, dense, ice hard snow call neve.
Neve is the first stage in the formation of glaciers, the team said.
The team has also encountered sheets of snow weighing hundreds of tonnes and tunnels and fissures known as bergschrunds.
This is how ice ages start a buildup of snow which does not melt in the Summer, which leads to a positive feedback loop, as the growing ice sheet reflects more and more sunlight back into space.
It’s a slow motion train wreck carried out by PC idiots, but I repeat myself.
Obviously global warming disguised as global cooling . . .
Nature is a Sneaky Pete!
Ah-HA!!! Just as my geology professor said it would happen!
Well, except that he told us it would happen in the 1980s and after that failed to materialize, he became a global warming alarmist for the rest of his career
But otherwise he was SPOT ON, and British Botanists conducting a Summer survey of Scotlands tallest mountain, Ben Nevis prove it!
Warm globally, cool locally! LOL!
"The purpose of Newspeak was not only to provide a medium of expression for the world-view and mental habits proper to the devotees of IngSoc, but to make all other modes of thought impossible. Its vocabulary was so constructed as to give exact and often very subtle expression to every meaning that a Party member could properly wish to express, while excluding all other meaning and also the possibility of arriving at them by indirect methods. This was done partly by the invention of new words, but chiefly by eliminating undesirable words and stripping such words as remained of unorthodox meanings, and so far as possible of all secondary meaning whatever."
Algore is deeply saddened by this unexpected turn of events, and will take a moment off from his lawsuit with Aljazeera to draft a strongly worded letter.
Ice ages are a well known intermediate effect of global warming. I’m sure the next IPCC report will clear this up.
FWIW, last time I needed to replace a roof, we chose a dark, dark red just to thumb our noses at these idiots.
Damn global warming
That’ll happen. Global Warming is a wild card and can lead to any type of Climate Change. Of course, Climate Change always leads to government funding. That’s a given.
It’s always something...
Gaia help us! We must soon surrender our freedom and prosperity to global overlord hyper-nannies and obediently accept our meager subsistence rations... and stop global warming... or we all gonna freeze to death!!!
This is great! The assclown gore is getting millions from the idiots that fall for his crap. the governments of the world that believe in this are worse than the dictators of old.
The last 2 summers have seen some snow at lower levels here in CO not melt. Some of the hiking paths we go on have snow stay over the paths all summer.
Is that legit?
