    Antarctic ice melting at a "staggering" rate..


    two-month-long expedition to one of the most remote sites on the planet — the sprawling Pine Island Glacier in Antarctica — has revealed that currents of warm water beneath the glacier are melting the ice at a staggering rate of about 2.4 inches (6 centimeters) per day....

    • Yeh, I thought I noticed the pool level rising in the deep end.

    • This is a great bout. Good stuff. Pud in the lead, by my count.

        Scientists Admit They Got Warming Rate Wrong

        "A leaked copy of the world’s most authoritative climate study reveals scientific forecasts of imminent doom were drastically wrong."


        Medieval Warm Period: Damn those medieval cars and factories puking out all the CO2 and causing this warming period...

        This review begins with the study of Dahl-Jensen et al. (1998)1, who used temperature measurements from two Greenland Ice Sheet boreholes to reconstruct the temperature history of this portion of the earth over the past 50,000 years. Their data indicated that after the termination of the glacial period, temperatures steadily rose to a maximum of 2.5°C warmer than at present during the Holocene Climatic Optimum (4,000 to 7,000 years ago). The Medieval Warm Period (MWP) and Little Ice Age (LIA) were also observed in the record, with temperatures 1°C warmer and 0.5-0.7°C cooler than at the time of their writing, respectively. After the Little Ice Age, they report that temperatures once again rose, but that they had "decreased during the last decades," thereby indicating that the MWP in this part of the Arctic was significantly warmer than it was just before the turn of the century.

    • Ice has been melting at a "staggering rate" on our planet for 10's of 1000's of years, ya friggn moron..

      That's why we have a place called "Minnesota" now.. (along with many others)

      Are you just now noticing??

      Gawd, what a gullible tard...LOL!!!!
