Joe Romm is hyperventilating again that NPR doesn't always put a warmist spin on every news story. This time it's about a plant that was covered over by a glacier 400 years ago at the peak of the Little Ice Age [LIA]. The glacier has now receded enough due to recovery from the Little Ice Age to expose the plant once again. Comment "awaiting moderation" for Romm:

NPR Airs Story On Melting Glaciers Without Explaining Why They Are Melting
By Joe Romm on May 30, 2013 at 12:28 pm
NPR aired a story Wednesday about a “plant in the Canadian Arctic that started growing again after being buried under a glacier for 400 years.”
The story never mentions carbon pollution or even global warming. Neither does the NPR’s blog post on the story, which has an even better ending: “In fact, as glaciers around the world continue to recede, we may be hearing a lot more about bryophytes.”
But apparently we won’t be hearing more about why more glaciers are receding or speeding up — or what it all really means for humanity, like say, that whole sea level rise thing (see “JPL bombshell: Polar ice sheet mass loss is speeding up, on pace for 1 foot sea level rise by 2050″).
