Sorry WaPo… Peruvian tropical glaciers sublimating, not melting

Science dies on the front-page of the Washington Post.

The scary climate story featured on the WaPo front-page this morning is about disappearing tropical glaciers in Peru.

Of course the disappearance of glaciers is blamed on melting caused by the dreaded global warming. But as discussed in the study below, sublimation not temperature is the likely cause of tropical glacier disappearance.

  1. sounds a whole lot like the Mt. Kilimanjaro BS of a few years back. Gorebull warming was supposedly melting all the snow off the mountain. In fact it was cyclical lack of snow/precipitation and melt rates were quite normal. There just wasn’t enough new snow pack for awhile. You notice that quietly went away, much like the ozone hole issue.

  2. So, the WaPo let their “Latin America Correspondent”, whose specialty seems to be politics, write what essentially is a SCIENCE-based story?

    Nick Miroff sounds like ANOTHER one of those journos who really wanted to be a NOVELIST, but settled for writing fiction for the news media instead…..

  3. Science dies on the front-page of the Washington Post….but Science Fiction lives on.
    Is anyone old enough to remember the last time WP reported any science correctly ?
