Oops – Those Montana glaciers were supposed to be gone! Wha’ happened?

Instead, they appear to be growing.

The National Park Service removes all “glaciers gone by 2020” signs at Glacier National Park, Montana, after “larger-than-average snowfall over several winters), reads the headline.

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 Montana’s Rocky Mountains, would be gone by the year 2020 due to climate change.

However, the computer models the NPS relied upon from the early 2000s, which convincingly foretold an unending glacial retreat, turned out to be catastrophically inaccurate.

“Almost everywhere, the Park’s specific claims of impending glacier disappearance have been replaced with more nuanced messaging,” wrote Roger I. Roots, J.D., Ph.D.

“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.

Roots first reported the signage change in 2019 in an article for Watts Up With That.

The glaciers appear to be growing

Rather than melting, the glaciers appear to be growing, Roots said.

Teams from Lysander Spooner University (of which Roots is the founder) visiting the Park each September have noted that GNP’s most famous glaciers such as the Grinnell Glacier and the Jackson Glacier appear to have been growing—not shrinking—since about 2010. (The Jackson Glacier—easily seen from the Going-To-The-Sun Highway—may have grown as much as 25% or more over the past decade.) As much as 25 percent!

A viral video published on Wattsupwiththat.com showed that the Grinnell Glacier appears to be slightly larger than in 2009.

Here’s that video:


Are the glaciers in Glacier National Park growing?

  1. The high temperature in Verkhoyansk, a town in northeast Russia about 260 miles south of the Arctic coast and about 6 miles north of the Arctic Circle, topped out at 38 degrees Celsius, or 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit, Saturday.

    Very consistent with global cooling. During some of the ice ages in was much warmer in the Arctic. Russians are still mining for wooly mammoth tusks in the horthen islands.

    Of course there is a possibility that in the mean times a partial polar reverse occurred.

  2. It’s not just in the Northern Hemisphere that there’s way more snow falling, it’s also in the Southern Hemisphere (where it’s Winter):


    Strangely, the “Global Warming Is Caused By Humans” media seem almost reluctant to mention this. I’m sure it’s not because they predicted that “ice and snow would be a thing of the past by 2010”.

    Nah. Couldn’t possibly be that.

  3. Not surprising at all that the glaciers may be growing and I’m not surprised either that the NPS is “stealthily” removing the propaganda lies…I mean signs. Where I live at this time of year I am usually going outside in shorts and a tee shirt but this year I’m still going out in the early morning in my sweats. Something definitely wrong with the weather.

  4. “appears” ,”may”??? Where are the numbers? I cant show this to my idiotic but useful friends. Why is he pulling his punches?

  5. Close your eyes and believe the greens and those pesky chunks of ice won’t be a problem.

    Just kidding.

    Glaciers happen folks….

  6. NPS what a bunch of ignorant fools! Those idiots don’t surprise me though. They are no different than the MSM since they’re part of the government.

  7. climate models?
    utter crap
    covid models
    how long do you reckon before even the thickest sheepies begin to wake up
    no..I wont be holding breath or putting money they will.

    Vance above
    well to GIVE data on growing would be the final humiliation
    so they will either use covid shortfunding staffing as an excuse or just not do it
    or do it but hide the data until FOI demands hit em.

  8. In Romania one month ago and today

    The drought that is scorching the eastern states of the European Union is devastating crops and exacerbating what is expected to be the worst economic recession the region will go through since the fall of communism, Bloomberg was quoted as saying by Agerpres. In some parts of Romania and Poland this is the worst drought in the last 100 years, in the Czech Republic it is the worst in the last 500 years. May 20, 2020 | ECONOMICA.net

    Record floods in Romania! The greatest disaster of the last 200 years is announced! Dozens of localities are under water. The helicopters intervened

    According to the National Administration “Romanian Waters”, the floods recorded in recent days are historic. This luru has not happened in Romania for over 200 years.

    The situation is quite serious, considering the fact that in the last three days, cumulative precipitations were recorded 150 l / sqm- / 170l / sqm which led to the formation of a historical flood on the river Timiș and tributaries Bistra and Pogăniș.
    The General Inspectorate for Emergency Situations (IGSU) added that heavy downpours on 22 June caused flooding in 90 locations in 19 counties across the country.

    The worst affected counties are Alba, Bihor, Caraș-Severin, Botoșani and Vaslui. Areas of Harghita, Mureș, NEAMT and Suceava counties were also badly hit. Firefighters were called on to pump water from over 550 properties in total.

    I lived in NEAMT for 15 years.

  9. I already sent that photo of them clearing snow 70 feet deep from Glacier pass. Would not surprise me AT ALL if glaciers there are growing. You might not hear about it with the Blackfeet Nation to the East closed (native American).
