As we are already 8 days into 2020 with no sign of the glaciers disappearing, Montana’s Glacier National Park is set to remove the signage stating that “glaciers will be gone by 2020.”In the early 2000s, scientists warned that all glaciers will have melted by the year 2020, causing a dramatic rise in sea level that would have devastating results for coastal cities and islands.
However, as we enter the third decade of the 21st century, the glaciers are still present, and some have grown in size during recent years, according to NASA.
According to local media, the incorrect prediction from scientists are resulting in the removal of all signs stating that the glaciers will be gone by this year.
KPAX reports that Glacier National Parks spokeswoman Gina Kurzmen explained that “the latest research shows shrinking, but in ways much more complex than what was predicted.”
As a result, “the park must update all signs around the park stating all glaciers will be melted by 2020.”
Some of the signage was already removed in 2019, as the lack of melting became apparent.
