All good right wingers know that the Anthropogenic Global Warming is the greatest hoax known to mankind. In fact, not only is global warming fake, we may be headed for a period of global cooling.
Unfortunately, for wingers, vast numbers of liberal scientists refute these arguments by using actual science to show the rise of world wide temperature. Time to add a new group to the list of occupations that have joined the global global warming conspiracy. This new group of liberal scientists form an Emerging Specialty called Ice Patch Archaeology.
According to one tricksy scientist.
As glaciers and ice fields continue to melt at an unprecedented rate, increasingly older and significant artifacts -- as well as plant material, animal carcasses and ancient feces -- are being released from the ice that has gripped them for thousands of years, [the tricksy scientist] said.
Over the past decade, [the tricksy scientist] has worked with other researchers to develop a geographic information system, or GIS, model to identify glaciers and ice fields in Alaska and elsewhere that are likely to hold artifacts. They pulled together biological and physical data to find ice fields that may have been used by prehistoric hunters to kill animals seeking refuge from heat and insect swarms in the summer months.
"In these instances, what we're finding as archaeologists is stuff that was lost," [the tricksy scientist] said. "Maybe you missed a shot and your weapon disappeared into the snowbank. It's like finding your keys when you drop them in snow. You're not going to find them until spring. Well, the spring hasn't come until these things started melting for the first time, in some instances, in many, many thousands of years."
It has got to be tough being a winger. Everyone is against you - even these Ice Patch Archaeologists.
If these Ice Patch Archaeologists would admit that they really don't know why the ice is melting and that the various Ice Sheets could return at any time, maybe tomorrow, I think we could take them off the list. Until then, they stay on.
