Global Warming Idiocy: Blaming Everest Avalanche on Climate Change


Well that didn't take long.  Even before all the bodies have been recovered Live Science is blaming the tragic avalanche at Mount Everest on Climate Change:
The icy slopes of Mount Everest have seen hundreds of deaths in the years since 1922, when seven people perished during the British Mount Everest Expedition.

An avalanche today (April 18) claimed at least 12 lives, in what may be the single deadliest climbing event in the history of the world's tallest mountain (29,029 feet, or 8,848 meters). The death toll may rise, because other climbers are still missing, according to the BBC.

All of the deceased were guides from the ethnic Sherpa community, who were securing ropes for the start of the spring climbing season. And many Sherpas insist that Mount Everest and other mountains in the area have become more dangerous because of climate change. [Ice World: Gallery of Awe-Inspiring Glaciers]
Not only doesn't Live Science offer any proof that Sherpas insist mountains become more dangerous because of climate changes, but it doesn't explain if the avalanche was related to global warming, why it didn't happen a long time ago. After all,  as of this writing the Earth hasn't warmed in 17 years and 8 months.

This is the beginning of the climbing season on Everest. The "news" has been that AGW is causing less snow on Everest (less snow ='s less chance of avalanches), causing the lower snow level to rise, and causing glaciers to melt.

I it isn't CO2 its cow farts. The people putting this out are having brain farts.

Jeff Dunetz said...

Oh, my God. will this never end.

There were avalanches long before Al Gore and Industrial CO2. I blame gravity.

Jeff Dunetz said...

Crap. Don't give them any ideas. They'll start taxing us for gravity mitigation if we're not careful.
