WASHINGTON — Greenland’s ice sheet melted the most it has in over a half century last year, US government scientists said Tuesday in one of a series of “unmistakable” signs of climate change.
“The world continues to warm,” the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said in a briefing paper for reporters.
“Multiple indicators, same bottom-line conclusion: consistent and unmistakable signal from the top of the atmosphere to the bottom of the oceans.”
If the ice sheets are melting down, then the melted water has to go into the ocean. Sea level has to rise. Problem is, sea level plummeted during the hottest year ever – 2010. To make matters worse, they also claimed near record oceanic heat content and sea surface temperatures – which further undermines their ice sheet story.
Proving once again that you don’t have to know any science to be a climate scientist. In fact, it helps if you don’t.
