“A million” mountain livestock dying of cold in Peru and Bolivia

Andes cold alpacas nieveAndes Cold - Bolivia - 2

The “Ice Age Now” site reports the cold events the mainstream media seems to avoid, and I was troubled when I came across two stray headlines.

Global Warming is suppose to make mountains warmer, and in some cases cause plants and animals to go extinct because they can’t migrate any higher than a mountain’s top. It seems some South American herders did move uphill during the warmer years of the past few decades, and now are paying the price as it is too cold at those altitudes this year.

It should be noted that in Peru the animals dying include alpacas, which are native to the high altitudes of the Andes Mountains. (The person writing the second article obviously isn’t pleased by the Peruvian government.)

“This is a disaster unparalleled in our history. Of course, Ollanta Humala and his court seem to have been unaware. The presidential message of July 28 said iota about the tragedy. Frightening is the situation created by the snowfall that hit especially the poor peasants. The regime cares only for transnational mining poor things.”

Argiris Daimantis sent this news item to the “Ice Age Now” site, and added insights that ought cause some shame:

“One lion killed in Zimbabwe has got a lot of attention in the Main Stream Media,” says Argiris. “A disaster unparalleled in the history of Peru gets no attention at all.”

“Even the President of Peru chooses to ignore this disaster.

“Why? Because this news might disturb the new Global Warming religion.”

  1. Argiris has tremendous tenacity in finding these stories considering the language issue (much as Google Translate helps). I’ve had many a tip from them – always stuff ignored in the MSM.

      • It’s almost as if they have an unconscious monologue ‘cold, nah can’t exploit that’. I really don’t think it’s at a conscious and there is of course what they are fed by the news wires. In the next five or so years when cooling will be harder to ignore they may about face. Disaster is their staple and cold is lethal.

  2. Argentina, August 16, 2015. Here is the sign of things to come. In San Juan, Argentina , a group of workers of the Veladero mine in the Andes, found these two guanacos, frozen to death in the snow. Apparently the guanacos looking down mountain refuge in las vegas, which are places where spring water, high temperature and where pastures grow, but on their way they were surprised by the storm and froze to death standing and semitapados (surrounded) by snow. Since the company Barrick, which operates the gold mine Veladero-, reported that when there is temporary, it is common for animals down the mountain in search of refuge, but the snowfall of last week, far surpassed by temporary occurred in at least five years, and left more than a meter and a half of snow in the camp of the mining project and three meters of snow on the road.

    Reader’s comment: Hey Pope, this is what climate change lookes like in Argentina, the country where you came from.
