Scientists unmask ‘Ghost Mountains’ of Antarctica at last

Scientists unmask ‘Ghost Mountains’ of Antarctica at last“. Steven Mosher copy and pastes a report titled Scientists unmask ‘Ghost Mountains’ of Antarctica at last from Newsdesk.org. They’ve created a detailed map of the Gamburtsev Mountain Range of Antarctica, buried under kilometers of ice, using radar techniques.

To Anthony Watts’ readers this interesting development is ignorantly interpreted as “we don’t know so much about this planet we live on after all”. The comments, predictably, devolve into a series of complaints about government-sponsored “scientists” and phony scientists that leech off the taxpayers via the government. Another day, another pavlovian response.

One thought on “Scientists unmask ‘Ghost Mountains’ of Antarctica at last

  1. One of H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu stories had the discovery of an ancient civilization in the Antarctic – “At the Mountains of Madness”.

    Seems appropriate!
