Nooooo, really?? It’ll take an ice age to convince the global warming geeks that they not only can’t predict future climate, climate has always changed, and it doesn’t work to fudge the data and lie through your teeth.
Nearly 230 billion tons of ice is melting into the ocean from glaciers, ice caps, and mountaintops annually—which is actually less than previous estimates, according to new research by scientists at the University of Colorado, Boulder.
If the amount of ice lost between 2003 and 2010 covered the United States, the whole country would be under one-and-a-half feet of water, or it’d fill Lake Erie eight times, researchers say. Ocean levels worldwide are rising about six tenths of an inch per year, according to researcher John Wahr.
While vast quantities of ice melting into the ocean is not exactly good news, Wahr says, according to his team’s estimates, about 30 percent less ice is melting than previously thought.
I’ve also heard many scientists make the claim that the ice caps are growing. So, why don’t we stop making policy based on made up science and focus on the real problems facing the world today. Novel, I know.
Update: Yet another example: The Himalayas and nearby peaks have lost no ice in past 10 years, study shows
Could it be that Algore doesn’t haven’t the faintest clue what he’s talking about? I think the proof for that condition is overwhelming and growing by the day.
