NASA is finally admitting that the Antarctic is overall gaining ice. Greenland is also gaining ice. Most of the world's glaciers are growing, and for anyone who likes to ski the season is beginning early this year. Everywhere that was once covered in glaciers is beginning to become colder. Expect this to be the most brutal winter the world has ever seen, but of course the "man-made climate-change" believers will say things like, "Oh, but some places get colder." Is it just a coincidence that the "places getting colder" are the exact same places that were covered in glaciers thousands of years ago?

The theory of AGW is officially dead. Dress warm.

Pfft,

Cold, Hot, Rain, Snow, True, False, Ice, Steam, whatever....

We Must Have A Carbon Credit Trading Scam for the financial industry and government.


THAT is the goal. Nothing else matters. Doesn't matter what is confirmed, denied, true, false.

All Roads lead to the Carbon Credit Trading Scam.... For Global Warming, Global Cooling, Global anything - Must have Credit Trading Scam of some type.

People will go back and forth all day on "is it true", "no it isn't true", whatever.

Doesn't Matter....

Goal: Carbon Credit Trading Scam

Only Solution For Anything: Credit Trading Scam

Shhhh! You have spoken blasphemy! You are heretic. Expect the pro-Global Warming zealots to be along any minute now to ... ummm, well they can't burn you at the stake ... too much carbon ... uh ... Compost you with extreme prejudice?

Soon you will have a climate doomer screaming how the article references sea ice rather than land ice, good luck ^_^

thats a relief.

So we can start pumping carbon into the atmosphere irresponsibly and without any regrets? I was getting really worried about the profit margins of energy producers but now with this new info, we can breath a sigh of relief. I mean polluting our earth would never cause anything to happen, she's indestructible. I'm sick of all these hippies telling me polluting our Earth is wrong



I'll just close my eyes and ears and let future generations deal with it.

More like we can start worrying about pollution as a local issue again and not some kind of global thing that requires we all give up our national sovereignty and our personal freedom.

I hear they're giving out government grants to breed fartless cows. Maybe they could breed a fartless you too?

Actually methane gas is horrible for the atmosphere. Cows and other ruminants emit tons of methane.

so yea hold it in or endorse population control

The only way to help is to make it a global issue. China and India being some of the biggest polluters with the biggest populations. The USA has to lead by example and show how to diversify the way we produce energy.

Clean coal, solar, natural gas and even nuclear all need to be balanced and renewable energy slowly becoming more prominent and hopefully taking over as our prime energy source.

Surely composting releases carbon dioxide too.

Where did you get Greenland from? This is for parts of Antarctica.



Zwally’s team calculated that the mass gain from the thickening of East Antarctica remained steady from 1992 to 2008 at 200 billion tons per year, while the ice losses from the coastal regions of West Antarctica and the Antarctic Peninsula increased by 65 billion tons per year.

“The good news is that Antarctica is not currently contributing to sea level rise, but is taking 0.23 millimeters per year away,” Zwally said. “But this is also bad news. If the 0.27 millimeters per year of sea level rise attributed to Antarctica in the IPCC report is not really coming from Antarctica, there must be some other contribution to sea level rise that is not accounted for.”


You've got some thread-catching sweeping generalizations not backed up by the data or the studies findings.


But it might only take a few decades for Antarctica’s growth to reverse, according to Zwally. “If the losses of the Antarctic Peninsula and parts of West Antarctica continue to increase at the same rate they’ve been increasing for the last two decades, the losses will catch up with the long-term gain in East Antarctica in 20 or 30 years -- I don’t think there will be enough snowfall increase to offset these losses.”


Sorry, still an issue. We're interacting with cycles large and small, trending towards destabilization of Earth's natural rhythm's.


The extra snowfall that began 10,000 years ago has been slowly accumulating on the ice sheet and compacting into solid ice over millennia, thickening the ice in East Antarctica and the interior of West Antarctica by an average of 0.7 inches (1.7 centimeters) per year. This small thickening, sustained over thousands of years and spread over the vast expanse of these sectors of Antarctica, corresponds to a very large gain of ice – enough to outweigh the losses from fast-flowing glaciers in other parts of the continent and reduce global sea level rise.

Arctic Sea Ice Summertime Minimum Is Fourth Lowest on Record

Sorry, not so easy to sum up ...

You are stealing the "cue the XXXX group in 5...4...3...2.." from many others. It's not even amusing anymore.

There is a link at the bottom of the article that leads to that.
