Pakistan Lead Negotiator : Greenland Ice Sheet Disappeared Last Summer

It was scary enough to learn that the Himalayas would be ice-free by the year 2035, but now we find out that from Pakistan’s top climate official the Greenland ice sheet disappeared last summer.

It is scary to note the limitation in our understanding of the impact of current 0.8 per cent mean global temperature increase with the sudden disappearance of the Greenland’s ice sheet in four days in July this year — a picture which some thought resulted from an error in satellite monitoring.

Apparently in Pakistan they measure temperature in percent, rather than degrees. Did this moron graduate from primary school?

    I left a comment there, but not sure it will ever show up. Basically I asked them how the Hell a 9000-foot-thick lens of ice, melted in four days. And why no one notices the oceans are 7 meters deeper.

    I was polite, of course. But intelligent observation is not what they are about, now, is it?

  2. Otter says:

    And I invite Everyone who comes by here, to ask them the same question.

  3. Otter says:

    How about that, it got thru!

  4. Ray says:

    Only an idiot would believe that Greenland’s ice sheet had disappeared for four days.
    How can we fight against such stupidity?

  5. Ray says:

    Is this the same person?

    If so, how did someone with no apparent qualifications get to become Pakistan’s Lead Negotiator?

    This must be part of that initiative making Moslems proud of their contribution to science.
    The author, Farrukh Khan, has written a pile of steaming dung.
    Being so easily blinded to real science facts, explains a lot about why these people are duped by the lies from their religion of peace.
    Common sense is missing.
    God help us all.

    This is probably one of the smarter attendees. I’m sure he will soon be offered a job on MSNBC or Huffington Post. :-)

    If the global mean temperature increased by 8/10 of 1% over 100 years(?) I wouldn’t consider this to be a reason to panic.

    • If he increased his IQ by 0.8 it would probably double it.

    • Ray says:

      I suspect that he is referring to an increase of 0.8 DEGREES compared with “pre-industrial” temperatures (i.e. 1861-90), but of course, that isn’t 0.8%.
      I am not sure if you can measure temperature changes in percentages, as you get different figures for different scales, but if you were to use kelvin, starting at absolute zero, the current temp. would be about 288k, so 0.8 degrees would be less than 0.3%.
      And that is since 1861-90.

    Pakistan succeeds in collecting billions from the US to fight a threat their secret service is keeping alive by it funding with the very same money given to them to combat it. Why should they give up a working scheme just because it is about a different kind of “threat”.
