The West Antarctic ice sheet, the biggest mass of ice in the world, has been growing since the end of the nineteenth century.
Antarctica is the coldest place on Earth. The temperature would have to rise 54 degrees Fahrenheit to meaningfully start it melting.
“The volcanic heat sources were found beneath the fastest moving and the fastest melting glacier in Antarctica, the Pine Island Glacier,” Loose said. “It is losing mass the fastest.”
If global warming caused less ice in West Antarctica, how did it cause more ice in Eastern Antarctica?
the Nature study only found sea level rise that’s less than one-tenth of what is expected under the worst-case scenarios for global warming. “We’re still talking about roughly half a millimeter per year,”
Antarctic ice has been reaching record extents in recent years. North pole ice thinned, but then recovered.
This isn’t the first time scientists have been stymied by thick Arctic sea ice.
It’s been a little over four years since an “Arctic expert” claimed the North Pole would be ice-free by the summer of 2016. That never happened.
Antarctica has been cooling, not warming for nearly 20 years. Sorry climate campaigners, wrong again.
A group of adventurers, sailors, pilots and climate scientists that recently started a journey around the North Pole in an effort to show the lack of ice, has been blocked from further travels by ice.
A new study by Canadian scientists once again debunks the notion polar bears are currently being harmed by global warming. Researchers with Canada’s Lakehead University found “no evidence” polar bears are currently threatened by warming.
Greenland’s ice sheet is thickening, according to a new study, which also notes ice is moving more slowly towards the ice sheet’s edge than it has, on average, over the last 9,000 years.
Former Vice President Al Gore shocked Americans in “An Inconvenient Truth” when he said polar bears were drowning because global warming was melting Arctic sea ice, but now a new study shows that polar bears did just fine even when there was no ice covering the Arctic.
The facts keep putting the lie to the global warming campaign's attempts to scare the world over Antarctica.
CFACT advisor Dr. Larry Bell is amused with the latest spin from the Obama Administration and its henchmen from the politico-scientific community -- this time regarding the latest report on the relatively tiny West Antarctic ice sheet. Bell points to several key facts ignored by reporters and political hacks alike -- notably, the recently discovered 1-mile-deep rift valley and volcanic activity under the West Antarctic ice sheet and the fact that the other 90% of the Antarctic ice sheet is experiencing record high ice levels. Just further evidence that you cannot believe the White House or the mainstream media.
