Fox News anchor Bill Hemmer opens a segment with “So it is happening with more infrequency from the lab in Wuhan to the warnings of melting glaciers. Scientists are getting it wrong in cases. Does the public have reason to lose trust as a result?” before introducing Fox radio anchor Brett Larson and continuing, “So we came across a story the other day with Glacier National Park up in Montana, they had a big sign out there warning the glaciers were going to disappear by 2020… and then they go in and take the signs down and we said ‘Brett, why don’t ya look into that?'”
Larson picks up with “Haha! You know it’s, uh, it is an interesting case… You know it kind of reminds me of when we do a forecast for a hurricane” and goes into a boring hypothetical about a hurricane that veers off from all three possible paths forecasted by TV meteorologists, continuing “They put those signs up about a decade ago sayng that the glaciers weren’t going to be here by 2020 because of the current model for global climate change. Turns out they weren’t right [blonde laughs] 85 percent of the glaciers have shrunk and they continue to [shrink] and they left the signs up because of the funding for the…” and Hemmer interjects with “What percentage of the glacierrrr… went bye-bye?”
Larson answers with “About 35 percent of it… So it’s it’s still there. But the thing is – and I am the least anti-science person around and why would I be because without science we wouldn’t have TV, we wouldn’t have these lights over our heads. But science is supposed to be questioned, you’re supposed to- that’s the whole point. A scientist doesn’t come forward and say ‘this is happening because of this’ and if they do… IIIIII’m not gonna trust that scientist.”
TLDR: Because climate scientists overestimated the rate of the still currently ongoing decomposition of glaciers in Montana, you don’t have to listen to other shit they say.
