image for Switzerland's receding glaciers reveal huge mess
Photo shows only a portion of Ice Man's backyard

The Earth's warming and consequent melting of glaciers high atop the Swiss Alps has led to huge amounts of prehistoric junk being exposed.

Once thought to be pristine in their natural beauty, the previously snow covered mountains are now being revealed as a veritable trash heap of leftovers from long ago societies.

"The simple agrarian people of the past chucked out way more waste than we do, its just been under ice and snow all this time. Damn global warming!" Said Svenbard Harkenheimer, a Danish ice archeologist working in the area.

One theory holds that the "Ice Man", found frozen near here was actually running away to start a new life after totally trashing his environment.

Researchers will continue digging through the mess in hopes of finding some art or something exhibiting more than just a "use and toss" existence.
