No, 98% of climate scientists are all wrong and corrupt. Use more fossil fuels. Hell, roll coal to show those commie libs!

It looks like giving Al Gore money for reasons has paid off
 
2014-08-24 05:11:55 PM  
From the article it sounds like they were looking for and expected these snow fields, and that they're remnants from the last ice age, not new developments.

FTFA: "Hazards common in arctic and alpine areas but described as "extremely unusual" in the UK during the summer have been found on Ben Nevis."

Jeez people. Stuff such as neve IS extremely unusual in the UK during the summer, but not on the highest mountain in the UK. Nowhere does the article say Ben Nevis is becoming more glacial like.

The whole point of the detailed survey they is doing is map out current living organisms and ice so they have a baseline for studying it under warming climate change.

LOL when did that QU bogus study by Cook et al suddenly jump from 97% to 98%?

The true number of studies that explicitly blamed AGW was actually .05% but Cook decided to include two other categories to inflate the numbers.


And why would QU threaten people if they published the paper?

It was a never ending spate of wind, rain and misery spent out in the middle of a Loch off of the Clyde.

Just finished watching  Outlander's latest episode, so read that entire article in a Scottish brogue.

I believe the original Scottish links terrain, including pot bunkers, was formed by glacial scour in the last ice age.
