Because we have to laugh from time to time, here is news I know will cheer you! It has been revealed that mapmakers made a “mistake” wiping out over 100,000 square miles of ice from Greenland and have now had to admit their error.
LOL! You probably won’t see this story on the front pages of the New York Times or Washington Post.
From Scotsman.com (Hat tip: Judy):
IT APPEARED to provide incontrovertible proof that global warming was accelerating faster than even the most doom-laden scientists had predicted.
There was considerable alarm when the word’s [world's] most authoritative atlas printed a map which showed that Greenland was rapidly turning green.
However, experts from around the globe pointed out that the cataclysmic chart had no scientific support and was contradicted by all of the most recent satellite images.
Now the Scottish map-makers responsible for the disappearance of 115,830 square miles of polar ice have admitted publicly they were wrong.
As an act of contrition, The Times Comprehensive Atlas of the World cartographers have produced a new map which restores Greenland’s ice cover.
Read it all!
Of course the not-so-funny part is that the beat goes on at the United Nation (Agenda 21) and with Governor Martin O’Malley’s Plan Maryland — programs designed to take away your freedoms (your property rights, the basis of our freedom!) based on bogus scientific information about global warming.
