Southern ice just keeps on growing, setting record after record. Our warming propaganda pals would like to pooh-pooh all that ice, imagine what they’d say if the ice were shrinking instead of piling up?
Now their big Antarctic glacier story (sorry Suzanne Goldenberg) is collapsing. Studies show the sea to be naturally eroding West Antarctic glaciers, with some melting added in by GEOTHERMAL activity — Not your economic freedom at all!
Meanwhile ice on the other 92% of Antarctica and the seas around it is reaching record extents.
Sea level remains inconveniently stable; not meaningfully changing the rate at which it has varied since before the industrial revolution.
Isn’t it time we call out and put a stop to polar propaganda before the Left taxes us back into the ice age?
Phys.org finds a nice way of saying the doomsters have completely misunderstood the reason why the West Antarctic Ice Sheet outlet has been thinning. New research finds hotter than previously thought geothermal activity underneath the glacier. This means the animated model showing massive WAIS recession by 2350 Cabot Institute director Prof. Rich Pancost was scaring the punters with down at SPRI last week is junk science:
Thwaites Glacier, the large, rapidly changing outlet of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet, is not only being eroded by the ocean, it’s being melted from below by geothermal heat, researchers at the Institute for Geophysics at The University of Texas at Austin (UTIG) report in the current edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
The findings significantly change the understanding of conditions beneath the West Antarctic Ice Sheet where accurate information has previously been unobtainable.
