Skip to comments.THE NPS REMOVES ALL “GLACIERS GONE BY 2020” SIGNS AT GLACIER NATIONAL PARK, MONTANA AFTER “LARGER-THAN-AVERAGE SNOWFALL OVER SEVERAL WINTERS”

Following years of heavy snowfall, the National Park Service (NPS) is quietly removing all visitor center signs that declare the glaciers at Glacier National Park, located in Montanas Rocky Mountains, will be gone by the year 2020 due to climate change.
With that doomsday deadline about to come and go in just a few months time, the service is rather sheepishly pulling all 2020 signs from its displays after the computer models it relied upon from the early 2000s, which convincingly foretold of unending glacial retreat, have turned out to be catastrophically inaccurate.
Larger than average snowfall over several winters slowed down that retreat rate and the 2020 date used in the NPS display does not apply anymore, said the USGS, which monitors Glacier National Park.
Roger I. Roots, J.D., Ph.D., first noted the signage change in an article for Watts Up With That.
Almost everywhere, the Parks specific claims of impending glacier disappearance have been replaced with more nuanced messaging, Roots wrote.
The Park Service is scrambling to remove the signs without their visitors noticing, Roots posted on his Facebook wall, along with a video showing the sign changes:
Just last year, officials at Glacier National Park were displaying signs and brochures predicting that all glaciers in the Park would disappear by 2020 (or 2030). Now the Park Service is scrambling to remove the signs without their visitors noticing. ...
The gone by 2020 claims were repeated in the New York Times, National Geographic, and other international news sources, writes Roots. But no mainstream news outlet has done any meaningful reporting regarding the apparent stabilization and recovery of the glaciers in GNP over the past decade.
Even local Montana news sources such as The Missoulian, Billings Gazette and Bozeman Daily Chronicle have remained utterly silent regarding this story.

Story is from June of last year.
Just have to worry about the statues.
What ???? My bad on the date ...
With such stupidity on display how can they even be expected to properly manage a resource and asset of the USA as a national park?
kindergarten would be a chalenge
It got many a chuckle last year when it was posted - many times.
But, hey, still worth a good chuckle.
We are in a winter weather watch in my part of Montana for tonight.
8” of snow over 5,000.
12” + over 7,500.
We’ll likely have some bad damaged trees this time tomorrow.
GW my a$$!
Bad = badly.
I saw where they replaced the dated apocalypse signs with undated apocalyptic signs.
Story is from June of last year.
That’s because they just dug out of the winter snow
Yes, but polar bears!
Those signs are valuable and should be saved as monuments to Fake News.
It deserves a rerun.
Supposed to be there next year or the year after I guess I might as well cancel it since it will all be flooded. Extreme sarcasm turned off now.
And like everything else that the left gets away with, there will be no shaming on TV of them getting it totally wrong.
Take down a few signs, and pretend it never happened and it never happened.
I say PUT ALL the Signs back up with a Picture of Algore and Barry the Muslim so everyone remembers the snake oil they have been peddling all these years.
Don't let them revise THEIR history.
I mostly agree, but just leave them there as is; leave “Gone with the Wind” as is too. Let people set their own context.
