The Guardian has announced that the collapse of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet “has already begun.”
Western Antarctic ice sheet collapse has already begun, scientists warn | Environment | The Guardian
Forty years ago, scientists announced the same thing.
And in 1932, scientists told us that the WAIS had been receding three feet per day since the early 19th century.
Climate scientists need funding to keep working, so they attempt to tie phenomenon which have been going on for centuries to recent CO2 emissions. This is blatant fraud, and they need to be held accountable for their criminal activity.
Sea level rise is inevitable.
Yep.. 1 – 1.8mm/year for the last century at least.
NO CO2 WARMING SIGNATURE AT ALL.
That is , of course until the cycle suggested by ancient Chinese data reverses about mid-century.
Oh wait.. you don’t know about that do you..
Just like you don’t know about any other climate cycles..
If ignorance is bliss.. you must be seriously high !!
No surprises ..
Once a decent conservative government gets in power in the USA….
….. these guys are TOAST!!!!!
Did they check Hillary’s server?
Researchers Find Major West Antarctic Glacier Melting from Geothermal Sources
Notice that they have to twist this so it is ALARMIST… OH MY GOSH, WE ARE ALL GOING TO DIE, from something that has been going on for centuries. Sheesh
Huge Underwater Volcanoes Discovered Near Antarctica
Volcanoes Erupt Beneath Arctic Ice ” New evidence deep beneath the Arctic ice suggests a series of underwater volcanoes have erupted in violent explosions in the past decade.”
From a similar thread.
Lead author Andrew Fisher, professor of Earth and planetary sciences at UC Santa Cruz, emphasized that the geothermal heating reported in this study does not explain the alarming loss of ice from West Antarctica that has been documented by other researchers.
Except where is isn’t.
From 2004 Climate Variability in West Antarctica Derived from Annual Accumulation-Rate Records from ITASE Firn/Ice Cores
The ice cores from this study were analyzed to look for recent changes in accumulation rates. The period 1970–present was chosen due to numerous previous studies reporting changes in accumulation during this same time period. Mean accumulation since 1970 for each site was compared to the long-term mean and, due to the different time period covered by each record, the mean from 1922 to 1991 (the period of overlap between records) (Table 2). Results for cores 01-5 and 99-1 are disregarded because of the possible need for topographic corrections (see previous section). The results indicate a slight decrease (1–4%) in accumulation at sites 00-4, RIDS C and Siple Dome, and a larger decrease (9%) at site 00-5. Accumulation increased (5–10%) at sites 01-3, 01-2 and 00-1. The geographical clustering of these sites suggests that there has been an increase in accumulation since 1970 in the western sector of the Pine Island–Thwaites drainage system (00-1, 01-2, 01-3) (Fig. 2; Table 2).
So they compare average accumulation 1922 to 1991 against 1970 to present. It would take a 100% decrease before any ‘Alarming loss’ is seen. So far only one core is 9% less than average and the whole group shows growth not melting.

Climate quackery and alarmism are nothing new. The multi-billion dollar funding behind it is what is new, as well as left wingers using climate alarmism as a propaganda tool for a Marxist takeover.
