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.

    And the Journal that publishes this drivel as well

    Well at least mainstream Russian newspapers are smart LOL WE should not forget that in this physical sciences area they are amongst the best.

      Dang, That is a good article. He hits all the points.

      The Russians of course have a vested interest in really knowing what the climate will do. They have no desire to starve from decades of colder temperatures or worse.

    Funny, when I get in the tub the water rises equally all the way around. They must have discovered some new physics.

    This reminds me of the first rising ocean level scares a number of years ago. Enviros were always using the coast of Louisiana and certain portions of the California coast as examples of ocean level rise. They had to pick and choose carefully to get the answer/story they wanted. Turned out the section of Louisiana they chose was subsiding due to oil extraction and the coast of California was dropping as the area on one side of the fault slid down into the ocean.

    • stpaulchuck says:

      same thing in other coastal areas with wide continental shelves.The massive amounts of silt from the rivers has deflected the coasts (like America’s East Coast) thus giving rise to horror stories of ‘massive’ sea level rises.

      Or the Pacific islands subsiding as they deplete the fresh water under them.

      Etc.

    These guys are actually pretty clever. They have gotten a bunch of fools to give them billions of dollars for nothing.

  6. nielszoo says:

    Maybe that evil Mann-made CO2 has dissolved in the melt water and has been activated by cosmic rays coming through the hole in the ozone layer turning formerly natural water into it’s doppelgänger, a destructive polymerized pollutant characterized by massive increases in viscosity… and it’s probably a carcinogen that increases cholesterol to boot.

    • Gail Combs says:

      +1

      Maybe you should write that up and see if you can get a US grant or at least a U. S. GRANT

      • nielszoo says:

        I grew up near U.S. Grant’s Cabin is that a plus on my grant request?

        • Gail Combs says:

          I used to live near the Anheuser-Busch clydesdale breeding farm in Merrimack, N.H. The foals in the spring were hilarious to watch.

        • nielszoo says:

          When I was growing up, Sappington Rd. which fronts Grant’s cabin in that linked photo, was where the breeding farm was in St. Louis. One year our HS bus route went right by there and we got to see them everyday. They are beautiful animals and I always thought the foals were like tall Basset Hound puppies… they’re born with full sized feet.

    They must be betting that people don’t know melting doesn’t occur until temperatures rises above 32F.

    BTW, over at IceAgeNow I saw this interesting comment:

    I remember hearing a BOM spokesman claiming it was reasonable to delete the hottest temperature ever recorded in Australia from before the second world war on the grounds it may not have been recorded using standard practice.

    Without any proof at all he claimed it must have been recorded with the thermometer directly in the sun and not in shade.

    They are so arrogant about their infallibility they announce they are deleting “inconvenient” extreme heat recordings from the past…..

    WOW what ARROGANCE!

  9. schauminator says:

    And what happens as the ice sheets get thicker. Is that is the confusing trick question.

  10. rachase says:

    Actually, the fresh water from the melting ice is less dense than sea water, and does not readily mix with it, but “floats” on top, gradually dissapating. But as more keeps arriving (from melting ice), if the volume is sufficiently great it does form a layer that raises the sea surface slightly in the area of the melt.

    • DedaEda says:

      At -50C? Wouldn’t it immediately refreeze? Isn’t a fresh water freezing point 0C?

      • rachase says:

        Obviously it all depends upon the temperature of the ocean & the air, and (importantly) on the mass of the water (fresh and salt) involved.. The fact remains that what I wrote in not theoretical, but rather the physical science underlying the observed phenomina under discussion. The increase in the sea level over limited areas proximate to the discharge of fresh water ice melt has been studied and the fact of a fresh water layer has been established. Not a whole lot melting at -50C.
