More bad news for warmists: NASA finds no retreat of polar ice
This post has been withdrawn, for the article on Forbes that it cited has been withdrawn by that publication.
According to NASA:
Greenland’s ice sheet is the second largest mass of ice on Earth, containing enough water to raise ocean levels by about 20 feet. The ice sheet has been losing mass over the past two decades and warming temperatures will mean more losses for Greenland. Scientists are studying ice from different climate periods in the past to better understand how the ice sheet might respond in the future.”
What is important to note is that warming is something that occurred in the past and happens without us. When you read the facts given by the global warming alarmists, they always use a very short timeline, maybe 100 years. As you know, our earth is much older than this. Those that study beyond the ~100 years have found that temperature fluxuation on earth is normal.
Also from the same article -
“IceBridge’s flight lines often intersect ice core sites where other scientists have analyzed the ice’s chemical composition to map and date layers in the ice. These core data provide a reference for radar measurements and provide a way to calculate how much ice from a given climate period exists across the ice sheet, something known as an age volume. Scientists are interested in knowing more about ice from the Eemian period, a time from 115,000 to 130,000 years ago that was roughly as warm as today. This new age volume provides the first rough estimate of where Eemian ice may remain.”
