AGW Today: Alaskan Glacier Melt Overestimated? The H*ll You Say!

Shocking! And, by “shocking,” I mean that you are saying “they messed up the science over the past 40 years again? Yawn. Color me unsurprised

Glaciologists at the Laboratory for Space Studies in Geophysics and Oceanography (LEGOS — CNRS/CNES/IRD/Université Toulouse 3) and their US and Canadian colleagues (1) have shown that previous studies have largely overestimated mass loss from Alaskan glaciers over the past 40 years. Recent data from the SPOT 5 and ASTER satellites have enabled researchers to extensively map mass loss in these glaciers, which contributed 0.12 mm/year to sea-level rise between 1962 and 2006, rather than 0.17 mm/year as previously estimated.

They could be wrong on other things climate related, could they?

Mountain glaciers cover between 500 000 and 600 000 km2 of the Earth’s surface (around the size of France), which is little compared to the area of the Greenland (1.6 million km2) and Antarctic (12.3 million km2) ice sheets. Despite their small size, mountain glaciers have played a major role in recent sea-level rise due to their rapid melting in response to global climate warming.

See, there is a problem, namely that the temperatures were below the “average” during the 1960’s and 1970’s, so, how was it global warming, and, by global warming, you know they mean man-induced global warming

Oh, my bad, I forgot that greenhouse gases can cause it to get cold, too.

Meanwhile, fewer and fewer people are believing in AGW, and more and more are blaming it on nature.

  1. […] How long will it be before the alarmists blame the storm on global warming? Or George W. Bush? Or melting glaciers that aren’t melting? […]
