Death Valley was a large lake during the ice age!!
This is a Huge Challenge for Secular Ice Age Models!
“These ‘once-wet’ deserts are extremely difficult for a uniformitarian earth scientist to explain, because their Ice Age models require a very cold and thus much drier climate than we have today…
…An Ice Age requires abundant precipitation (moisture condensing out of the air) to make the ice sheets, and to fill the ancient Ice Age lakes. The problem the uniformitarian scientists struggle to solve is that the colder the air, the less moisture it can hold…”
Here is a challenging admission from some of the secular experts:
“The late Pleistocene landscape of the western United States was characterized by vast lake systems indicative of a hydrological balance dramatically different from the present … . In addition, the precise connection between lake levels and climate factors has proven challenging to establish, because the relationships among the physical and hydrologic controls on measured variables and past climatic studies are unresolved.8”
