"Scientists behind a major study that claimed the Earth’s oceans are warming faster than previously thought now say their work contained inadvertent errors that made their conclusions seem more certain than they actually are."

 

Also, studies show we do not have more hurricanes or stronger storms than we have had in the past.  Keep sucking on the tit of Al Gore.  He appreciates the contributions. 

 

 

That was from a totally different study released months ago. Catch up.

 

If anything, this new study is nothing more than independent confirmation of facts. Not that you care about the facts...

An alarming new study shows that ice in Antarctica is melting more than six times faster than it did in the 1980s, including areas that were thought to be relatively stable and resistant to change.

 

The study, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, shows that Antarctic ice melting between 1979 to 2017 raised global sea levels more than 1.4 centimeters and the ice loss is accelerating dramatically — a key indicator of human-caused climate change.

 

Scientists used aerial photographs, satellite measurements and computer models in 176 individual basins to make the determination.

 

Since 2009, Antarctica has lost almost 278 billion tons (252 billion metric tons) of ice per year, according to the new study. In the 1980s, it was losing 44 billion tons (40 billion metric tons) a year.

The new study, published January 21 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, found that the largest sustained ice loss from early 2003 to mid-2013 came from Greenland's southwest region, which is mostly devoid of large glaciers.

 

Greenland, the world’s biggest island, appears to have hit a tipping point around 2002-2003 when the ice loss rapidly accelerated, said lead author Michael Bevis, a geoscientist at Ohio State University. By 2012 the annual ice loss was “unprecedented” at nearly four times the rate in 2003, Bevis said in an interview.

 

The Greenland ice sheet is 10,000 feet thick in places and contains enough ice to raise sea levels 23 feet (7 meters). In the 20th century, Greenland has lost around 9,000 billion tons of ice in total, accounting for 25 millimeters of sea-level rise. (It takes about 360 billion tons of ice to produce one millimeter of global sea-level rise.)

 

However, Greenland is dwarfed by the Antarctic ice sheet, which could raise sea level 57 meters if fully melted. Alarmingly, the Antarctic is also undergoing an accelerated melt down, losing six times as much ice as it was four decades ago, a January 14 study reported. Its ice loss averaged 252 billion tons a year over the past decade.

Actually the modest warming has caused some ice to melt.  The normal response to this would be so what?  The response from mentally ill idiots is to buy a Prius and blame everyone else.  The bottom line is there is nothing alarming going on AT ALL.  In fact "Updated data from NASA satellite instruments reveal the Earth’s polar ice caps have not receded at all since the satellite instruments began measuring the ice caps in 1979. Since the end of 2012, moreover, total polar ice extent has largely remained above the post-1979 average. The updated data contradict one of the most frequently asserted global warming claims – that global warming is causing the polar ice caps to recede."

So cut the bull shit.  And even if this catastrophe were true based on your perverted perspective there isn't a damn thing you or anyone else can do about it.   That in fact might be the biggest lie of all.  That we can go nutty green and stop this.  I'll tell you right now that China emits almost a third of all the CO2 from the burning of fossil fuel IN THE WORLD and they would tell you to stick that global warming BS faster than I will.  Other countries like India, which is 3rd in total emissions of CO2, isn't even started on how much they will eventually emit as their emissions per capita grow.   You libtards are in denial to the reality of what is really going on.  Clueless actually.

Enjoy the warming sucker. 

 

 

Which show what? That America is still clearly the worst CO2 producer relative to population. 

 

None of this does anything to alter the clime change facts. And unlike here in America, the Chinese government is actually doing something about it. They are on pace to dominate the solar energy market while we abandon the future to them. Conservatives are doing their best to hand China the status of superpower in order to do the bidding of fossil fuel companies.

I suggest you go live in China where your political beliefs are more in line.  Watch out however.  Don't get too close to the shore.  Those rising seas Al Gore warned you about might get you.  Oh wait, wasn't it Al Gore who bought sea side property after spewing that spectacular bull shit about rising sea levels taking out New Yord.  Yea, suckers are born every day.

Is it a religious thing where people are so fucking stupid? I feel bad for anyone who believes god is more realistic than science.

 

I am not even talking about climate change, just in general it is absolutely astonishing how people can have such blind, stupid faith in something that was shoved down their throat as a child.

You can continue denying reality because you are a political sheep,  up it doesn’t change the scientific facts.
