Glacier National Park is quietly replacing signs that predicted the disappearance of its glaciers by 2020 due to climate change.

Now the United States Geological Survey is predicting many of the glaciers in Northern Montana will disappearance between 2030 and 2080.

The Washington Free Beacon's Andrew Kugle has more:

The new signs will still warn visitors that the glaciers are disappearing but won't offer an expected deadline this time.

"When they will completely disappear depends on how and when we act. One thing is consistent: the glaciers in the park are shrinking," the new signs will say.

This isn't the first climate change prediction to not come to fruition. A report from the Competitive Enterprise Institute documented more than 50 years of what it calls "notably wild predictions from notable people in government and science." One prediction, reported by the Associated Press in 1989, claimed rising seas would "obliterate" nations by the year 2000. Just a few years earlier, headlines were warning about another ice age.
