We’re Like Super Doomed From An Antarctic Ice Sheet

Like, super doomed, per hyper-Warmist and bloviator Chris Mooney

This Ice Sheet Will Unleash a Global Superstorm Sandy That Never Ends

Lots of blah blah hysteria

You need to really pause, and take a deep breath, to take in what that means: A little over three meters of sea level rise is already on its way into the ocean, with nothing to stop it. Granted, the process still takes a long time—likely hundreds of years—because as Alley explains, melting an ice sheet is a lot like unsnarling a traffic jam. “There’s this huge merge, that you take something that is a couple of miles thick, and a hundred miles wide, and you squeeze it way down,” he says. “And it’s coming out through a place that’s well less than a mile thick, and not nearly that wide.”

(More hyperventilation)

That’s why, as a human civilization on Earth, pretty much the dumbest thing you could possibly do is melt your planet’s ice sheets. And that’s why, if the news about West Antarctica isn’t enough to snap us into action on climate change, then we will only be able to thank ourselves for the disaster that is coming.

What’s missing in the article is proof of anthropogenic causation. The ice sheets have been melting for over 20000 years, from when the last glacial period “ended”. But, hey, in Warmists World hysteria is the same thing as science.

    Actually, what is missing is any physics. Did no one think about the physics of ice in water?

    Ice in water already has expanded the water volume based upon the volume of the ice. Melting ice in water does not add volume to the level of the water.

    This ice did not come from land. It was already in the ocean.

    OMG.. science is so hard for some. Maybe these people should not be trusted to put ice in their own drinks.

    Antartic Ice is about 60% of ALL the freshwater on the planet. If it all melts we get a 300′ sea level rise.
    It is melting now.

    The Ice sheet you are talking about was FORMED on land by snow fall and flows downhill to the ocean.

  5. Better_Late_Than_Gumballs says:

    You are as dense as ice.

    The GLACIER was formed on land. the part that calved off was already in the ocean. We’ve already seen the sea level rise that we will see as the water rose when the ice from the glacier initially pushed in to the ocean.

    However, if you take that further back, the ice is formed from collected and frozen water that was removed from the ocean. So, consider it balanced out.

    But then, think also what these reports are saying. That now that the ice has calved off the end of the glacier (ignoring that the part that calved off was already in the ocean), they are saying that the ice now that is floating in the ocean, WON’T affect the levels of the sea UNTIL that ice melts.

    Please tell me you aren’t that stupid to believe this.

    All this excitement is over ice that’s already floating? Won’t the ocean level lower once it melts, then?

    And isn’t the East Antarctic ice growing to record levels kinda balancing out the loss on the west side?

  7. Better_Late_Than_Gumball says:

    No JD, because that doesn’t support the doom and gloom that is being pushed by the new cult.

    This is akin to a piece of an ice cube falling out of your freezer bin full of ice when you open the freezer door. And yet the ice maker is still on and making ice.

    But then I’m amazed at the hysteria about the “loss of ice from antartica”. Yet, much more ice melts every summer, and even more ice is lost to sublimation.

    It’s like ice never calved before.
