Bummer: U.K. Mountains Could Be Reclassified To Hills Thanks To ‘Climate Change’

Here’s the Cult of Climastrology just being their silly hysterical selves

Climate change threatens status of several British mountains

SEVERAL mountains in the UK could literally disappear from the map because of climate change after it was revealed that rising sea levels could see them reclassified as hills. (bold theirs)

The Guardian reported that one of the peaks at risk — Calf Top in the Yorkshire Dales — was only reclassified as a mountain a few weeks ago.

What are people going to see? The part about mountains literally disappearing. The article slowly gets into the reasoning, so, let’s switch to the initial story at the Guardian, which is also doomy

Rising sea levels could topple the proud status of some British mountains, reducing them to the status of mere hills. Those in greatest danger of demotion include a peak in the Yorkshire Dales that was only reclassified as a mountain a few weeks ago.

The Ordnance Survey (OS) uses mean sea level as the starting point for measuring the absolute height of mountains, which must be a at least 609.6 metres (2,000ft) above sea level – but several peaks in England, Scotland and Wales are only a few centimetres taller than that.

That’s 666 2/3rds yards. Almost 7 football fields in length. What they’re SUPER CONCERNED with is a tiny rise in the seas, which have been ultimately rising since the end of the last glacial age roughly 20,000 years ago, causing a mountain to be reclassified. Or not so tiny

A change could affect the status of many sites cherished by walkers who like to tackle all the mountains in a group, including the Munros in Scotland, which are all over 914 metres (3,000ft), the slightly less challenging 762-metre (2,500ft) Corbetts, and the Hewitts, Nuttalls and Deweys in England and Wales.

The seas are not going to rise a bit over 500 feet, much less over a 1,00. They didn’t even do that as the ice age ended. These people are nutbars.

    Bummer??? well certainly not as bad as NJ having lost 90% of its lobster harvest because of that “miniscule” rise in ocean temps off its coast. which do you think is most serious Teach the lobsters being wiped out? or the reclassification of the mountains?

  2. john says:

    Teach did you understand that article? If the sea level nearby goes up only a few centimeters some of those now classed as mountains will be re-classed as hills. Please also note that the sea level rise will be greater in some areas (such as NJ) than in others.

    Simple solution…….Liberals are in charge of all scientific knowledge……

    Reclassify a mountain as anything that is 1999 feet tall……voilla Ive solved their conundrum for them.

    I’m still pissed that they decided that Pluto isn’t a real planet!

    John-There’s no proof the lobster harvest is down solely due to allegedly warming waters. And there’s no proof that the cause of the allegedly warming water is due to man’s CO2. Other than that, you got everything right.

    Record-high harvests have flooded the seafood market and driven prices in the Northeast so low that money earned selling lobsters seldom covers rising bait and fuel costs. It’s so bad in Maine that some fishermen have had their boats docked for weeks, unable to justify hauling dirt cheap harvests to shore.

    and now you know the rest of the story.
