NATURE JOURNAL OF SCIENCE: MAN-MADE GLOBAL WARMING ‘BLATANT FALSIFICATION’
Another one of the global warming loons’ oft-parroted mantras – “the Antarctic ice shelves are melting” – has gone up in smoke. Twenty-year-old models which have been used by climate change fanatics to “prove” serious ice loss in the eastern Antarctic have been compared with reality for the first time – and guess what? Reality won.
A two-year study found that no ice in the Antarctic ice shelves is being lost at all.
Yep, loons, your discredited guru – Al “The Science Has Been Settled” Gore has been proven wrong yet again. This is just one more example of why he refuses to debate global warming skeptics – or even to appear on panel discussions with anyone who challenges his claims. Gore’s excuse? He “doesn’t want to dignify” those who question climate change because “it’s not a matter of theory.”
Gore’s right; “it’s not a matter of theory,” it’s a matter of left-wing hoax and propaganda. (It’s also a matter of wealth redistribution – ultimately on a global level – but that’s another post for another time.)
Anyway, back to the Antarctic ice shelves:
“Previous ocean models have predicted temperatures and melt-rates that are too high, suggesting a significant mass-loss in this region that is actually not taking place,” according to Tore Hattermann of the Norwegian Polar Institute, a member of the team which has obtained two years’ worth of direct measurements from below the massive Fimbul Ice Shelf in eastern Antarctica – the first ever to be taken.
According to a statement from the American Geophysical Union announcing the new research:
It turns out that past studies, which were based on computer models without any direct data for comparison or guidance, overestimate the water temperatures and extent of melting beneath the Fimbul Ice Shelf. This has led to the misconception, Hattermann said, that the ice shelf is losing mass at a faster rate than it is gaining mass, leading to an overall loss of mass.
The team’s results show that water temperatures are far lower than computer models predicted.
Hatterman and his colleagues, using hot-water drilling equipment, bored holes more than 650 feet deep through the Fimbul Shelf, which spans an area roughly twice the size of New Jersey. The location of each hole was carefully chosen so that the various pathways by which water moves beneath the ice shelf could be observed. Sophisticated temperature-measuring instruments were lowered into each hole. Additionally, the team supplemented its findings with data provided by the Marine Mammal Exploration of the Oceans Pole to Pole (MEOP) study, which gathered information by attaching sensors to elephant seals.
“Nobody was expecting that the MEOP seals from Bouvetoya would swim straight to the Antarctic and stay along the Fimbul Ice Shelf for the entire winter,” Hattermann says. “But this behavior certainly provided an impressive and unique data set.”
Other than further loss of credibility – assuming that Gore had any credibility left to lose – the study drives another nail into the coffin of the increasingly-debunked man-made global-warming hoax. Gore – who has made hundreds of millions of dollars as a direct result of the hoax he continues to champion – was right in one respect: Climate change is not a matter of theory; it is a matter of science.
Not to add insult to injury, but the Nature Journal of Science, ranked as the world’s most-cited scientific periodical, has published a definitive study on global warming which proves that the dominant factors of temperatures in the Earth’s atmosphere are galactic cosmic rays and the sun, not man. The research was conducted by CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research. One of the report’s authors, Professor Jyrki Kauppinen, summed up his conclusions regarding the potential for man-made global warming: “I think it is such a blatant falsification.” Me too, Jyrki, me too.
The problem for Gore and his minions is this: “the science” has not “been settled” in their favor; “the science” continues to prove them wrong at every turn. But hey – Gore gets to keep the hundreds of millions of dollars; he’ll be just fine.
Have you noticed how the loons are beginning to refer to “climate change” vs. “global warming”? That way, they think they cover their asses – regardless of which direction the temperature moves.
