Over The Past Year, More Than 90% Of Greenland Has Gained Ice

Some parts of Greenland have gained more than a metre of ice over the past 365 days, and more than 90% of the ice sheet has seen a net gain (accumulation minus melt) in surface ice.

Experts and journalists who say Greenland is “melting down” are lying through their teeth.

Shock News : Scientists Surprised To Learn That They Have Been Lying All Along

Pacific islands growing, not sinking

Climate scientists have expressed surprise at findings that many low-lying Pacific islands are growing, not sinking.

Islands in Tuvalu, Kiribati and the Federated States of Micronesia are among those which have grown, largely due to coral debris, land reclamation and sediment.

The findings, published in the journal Global and Planetary Change, were gathered by comparing changes to 27 Pacific islands over the last 20 to 60 years using historical aerial photos and satellite images.

Auckland University’s Associate Professor Paul Kench, a member of the team of scientists, says the results challenge the view that Pacific islands are sinking due to rising sea levels associated with climate change.

“Eighty per cent of the islands we’ve looked at have either remained about the same or, in fact, gotten larger,” he says.

“Some of those islands have gotten dramatically larger, by 20% or 30%.

Understanding Why They Wanted To Get Rid Of The Blip

Climategate scientists said they wanted to get rid of the 1940’s blip, and they did. They don’t want people to know what the climate was like in the past, because it wrecks their story and exposes their graphs as complete nonsense.

Guardian And Scientists Take Climate Fraud And Stupidity To An Entirely New Level

1c49d787-e03c-45b2-a3e3-4607e087732b-460x276German researchers have established the height of the Greenland and Antarctic ice caps with greater precision than ever before. The new maps they have produced show that the ice is melting at an unprecedented rate.

The maps, produced with a satellite-mounted instrument, have elevation accuracies to within a few metres. Since Greenland’s ice cap is more than 2,000 metres thick on average, and the Antarctic bedrock supports 61% of the planet’s fresh water, this means that scientists can make more accurate assessments of annual melting.

Dr Veit Helm and other glaciologists at the Alfred Wegener Institute’sHelmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research in Bremerhaven, Germany, report in the journal The Cryosphere that, between them, the two ice sheets are now losing ice at the unprecedented rate of 500 cubic kilometres a year.

New satellite maps show polar ice caps melting at ‘unprecedented rate’ | Environment | theguardian.com

The area of the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets combined is 16,000,000 km². The claim is that they are losing 500 km³/year – which would be .03 metres/per year. Yet their accuracy is “within a few metres” – which means that they are claiming precision two orders of magnitude higher than their accuracy. Both ice sheets could just as easily have been claimed to be showing gain of ice as loss, based on their methodology.

The second problem is that they are conflating claimed ice loss with “melt”  The surface mass balance of just Greenland showed 300 GT of ice gain this past year, which is nearly the same as the claimed loss from both ice sheets. And even if the net balance was negative, it would be due to glacial flow into the ocean – rather than melt.

The third problem is that they printed a map of elevations with higher elevations colored red, to fool the reader into believing that the red color has something to do with warmth or melting. It doesn’t. In fact, the red areas almost never experience any melting.

These people are either beyond stupid, or hard core fraudsters – and need to be called out as such.

World’s Stupidest Humans Back At It Again

Humans can not possibly get any stupider than climate scientists.

Paris (AFP) – Sea levels around Antarctica have been rising a third faster than the global average, a clear sign of high meltwater runoff from the continent’s ice sheet, scientists said on Sunday.

Satellite data from 1992 to 2011 found the sea surface around Antarctica’s coast rose by around eight centimetres (3.2 inches) in total compared to a rise of six cm for the average of the world’s oceans, they said.

These morons think that Antarctica is melting down at -50C, and that the runoff water pools into an elevated mound which remains around Antarctica’s coast year after year. If that were true, a daily high tide would never recede.

The breathtaking stupidity of these people defies explanation. A more plausible explanation would be that increased glacial weight is causing the land to subside.
