What Climate Change Looks Like: A Race to Save Frozen Mummies
This week, we’re featuring images that show the varied ways that global warming has affected the world.
Scythian warriors, like the one seen on display above, have been buried within the Siberian permafrost for more than 2,000 years. Encased in icy tombs called kurgans, many of these mummies have their hair, tattoos and leather garbs still intact, providing archaeologists with a rare glimpse into their ancient lives.
But as global temperatures have warmed, the ice covering the tombs has melted, putting many of the frozen corpses at risk of thawing and rotting. The one seen above was recovered in 1995 from a kurgan where the permafrost had begun to disappear
The NYT is like The Onion, only liberals and their employees think it’s all real.
At the time these Scythians were buried, there was no permafrost. And if there was no permafrost, it must have been because of the SUVs the Scythian were driving. Didn’t they find any car bodies right next to the tombs?
They also refer to prehistoric times “when the Earth was warmer than it is today” – which must have been caused by all those prehistoric coal mines and tractor trailers!!!
You cannot make these people up. Next they will start shooting humans because they fart.
Google “Two Minute Conservative” for clarity.
“But as global temperatures have warmed, the ice covering the tombs has melted, putting many of the frozen corpses at risk of thawing and rotting.”
Um, but doesn’t that imply that the ground was not frozen and covered in ice when they were buried 2000 years ago, like it is today?
This NYT article suggests that the climate was warmer 2000 years ago than it is now. Ouch, that’s gotta hurt.
Simply put there are no unbiased or objective journalists. Media have political positions. Adhere to a certain line or quit, or get fired! Political parties are no different and the wrong guys are in charge. They don’t give a FART about you!
