That sounds like that Freeper thread from the other day where Moses’ enemies were swallowed up by the earth.

That snow bridge simply would not have collapsed if we had quit burning fossil fuels.

I swear I thought this was from the Bee. The sarcasm drips off this. It’s better than Heels Up running with/from Biden. Global Warming ain’t getting the Professor. You can’t make this sh!t up.

Not very smart in two respects; his ‘research’ perpetuated the global warming fraud and anyone who has worked in and around glaciers or ice fields should know of the dangers of snow-covered crevasses.

Glacier hiking is a lot like trying to walk on water.

Tough to pull off for an extended time. [see foot only water skiing...]

What are the odds?

I recall doctors being pushed off of bridges after the 2001 anthrax attacks (which PRE-DATED the 9-11 attacks!)
