Sometimes you don't have to read between the lines

An brief note on global warming also acknowledges the end of the last little Ice Age.

Two things with this one.

First, this is a slight effect, barely measurable and certainly not worthy of a headline.

Second is this paragraph (emphasis added).

The European Alps have been growing since the end of the last little Ice Age in 1850 when glaciers began shrinking as temperatures warmed, but the rate of uplift has accelerated in recent decades because global warming has sped up the rate of glacier melt, the researchers say.

"End of the last little Ice Age."

As in a natural cycle.

As in not human caused.

Anyone want to lay odds that it will be the bit about growing mountains that hits the news wires and not the bit about the end of the last little Ice Age?
