Settled Science: Yeah, About That Greenland Ice Sheet Melting…

Even the UK’s Guardian, a bastion of far left moonbattery, had to work really, really, really hard to spin the new scientific study away

The threat of the Greenland ice sheet slipping ever faster into the sea because of warmer summers has been ruled out by a scientific study.

Until now, it was thought that increased melting could lubricate the ice sheet, causing it to sink ever faster into the sea. The issue was a key unknown in the landmark 2007 report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which pinned the blame for climate change firmly on greenhouse gas emissions from human activities.

And that’s the difference between conjecture/computer models/unhinged advocates and actual scientific investigation

However, the impact of rising sea temperatures on melting ice sheets is still uncertain, meaning it remains difficult to put an upper limit on potential sea level rises. Understanding the risk is crucial because about 70% of the world’s population live in coastal regions, which host many of the world’s biggest cities, such as London, New York and Bangkok.

See? We don’t know (hey, I thought the science was settled?), but, hey, let’s scare the shit out of people anyhow

“The Greenland ice sheet is safer than we thought,” said Professor Andrew Shepherd of the University of Leeds, who led the research published tomorrow in Nature.

Shepherd’s team used satellite imagery to track the progress of the west Greenland ice sheet as it slipped towards the sea each summer, over five years.

Climate alarmists to dismiss the research as being paid for by Big Oil/Big Coal in 3…2…1….

    Ya indeed, research regarding ice sheets is very important for the safety of coastal areas.

  2. JF-17 says:

    For the safety of people, especially those who are living in coastal areas, such research is too much important.

    @JF-17: I don’t know what all the wailing and gnashing of teeth about sea level rise is all about. After all Venice is considered a romantic tourist destination. A Couple of gondolas and these coastal denizens will be as right as the mail. I am concerned however about low-level mid ocean islands. If they become completely submerged they’ll become hazards to navigation. I recommend that we act now get drill rigs out to these at risk islands, drill and blast off the top 150 or 200 feet of these grave potential threats to large oil tankers. As I’m sure all would agree nothing is more important than keeping that crucial energy source indeed the elixir of civilization flowing.
