Actually, I was agreeing with you.. lol
I am curious, since we're on the topic of ice flows, thickness and rates of change. Is Australia more active on those topics for Antarctica than
other nations? The reason I ask is that living right next to it, it seems Australia would have a more direct interest in it?
I hear you about conditions on the Ice. It's been something of a side interest of mine for years. It is an ENORMOUS continent with what we can only
really guess laying beneath. British surveys along some of the ridges indicate very clear and well defined features beneath as well, suggesting little
to no movement and more of a freeze in place for much of it. That does make for interesting possibilities.
Anyway... The thread seems to be in the direction of 'It's all over, nothing we can do, we're all dead'...and I just don't buy those theories.
Heck, it wasn't a couple days ago I had my own thread about the snow in Missouri and areas of Northern Arkansas when I found NASA reports showing a
whole 0.9 Celsius rise in temp, globally, since 1880 ..and oddly, no expected rise in temps in the last 10 or so years as the models had said there
The whole global system is a bit too complex, in my opinion, to keep popping numbers into models and expecting the result to be solid and reliable
enough to base major policy and future planning on. Just my thoughts by the mix-mash of science conflicting at the moment.
