Doom: Sea Rise From Melting Ice Prognostications Way Too Conservative

Seriously, how often do you see a piece from the climate cult that says “yeah, things are OK”? Because it is a doomsday cult, they continuously have to make things worse and worse and worse. Kinda like celebs, such as a Miley Cyrus, who do something a little crazy. Then have to top that. And top that. And top that. Etc

Surging global ice melt suggests sea level rise predictions are far too conservative

The world’s ice is melting so fast that sea level rise predictions can’t keep up.

In the 1990s, the Earth’s ice was melting at a rate of about 760 billion tons per year. That has surged 60 percent to an average of 1.2 trillion tons per year in the 2010s, a study published Monday in the journal The Cryosphere estimates. And as another study published earlier this month in Science Advances makes clear, the problem is feeding into itself.

Climate change is largely responsible for the huge ice melt surge, the Cryosphere study reports. In fact, about three percent of all the energy trapped within the Earth’s systems because of climate change has gone toward that ice melt, the study estimates. “That’s like more than 10,000 ‘Back to the Future’ lightning strikes per second of energy melting ice around-the-clock since 1994,” William Colgan, an ice-sheet expert at the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland, told The Washington Post. “That is just a bonkers amount of energy.”

“Together, the two studies present a worrying picture,” the Post writes. The first study found “the ice sheets are now following the worst-case climate warming scenarios set out by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change,” study author Thomas Slater said in a statement. But the second reveals that the panel’s sea level projections, which were already criticized as too conservative, may have underestimated the role of glacial undercutting in accelerating ice melt even more.

First, this is all your fault. You know that, right? That big steak you had the other day, remember that? Second, let’s hit the Washington Post

Together, the two studies present a worrying picture

The first finds that the current ice losses, which are accelerating quickly, are on pace with the worst scenarios for sea-level rise put out by the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). That expert body found that ice sheets could drive as much as 16 inches of sea-level rise by 2100.

Well, if that happened, that would actually be on the high side of what is expected during a Holocene Warm period. So, no big deal. This has happened numerous times, and I don’t think they were driving fossil fueled vehicles in 30BC

“It is no surprise that the ice on our planet is melting,” said Robin Bell, an expert on the polar ice sheets at Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory. “We have turned up the temperature, and just like you can watch an ice cube in your glass melt on a hot summer day, our actions are melting our planet’s ice.”

The weird part is that there is not one shred of scientific proof offered in the piece that would show that Mankind is mostly/solely responsible for any of this. They don’t think they need it, because doomsday cults do not actually need proof for their beliefs.

    Excitable Russia TEACH has never described what he would accept as proof of GHG-induced global warming.

    It’s clear that excitable Russia TEACH has no idea.

    Hypocrite Elwood P. Dowd lies to defend his Masters yet again.

    Whatever happened to the islands predicted in 1985 to be underwater by now and are still above sea level.
    Where are all the climate change refugees?
    The U.S. is now part of the swindle. How much money are they going to be paying to the U.N.?
    Hospitals are near to capacity over small swells in patients that could happen from any catastrophe, should not the money be better spent to build new hospitals to lighten the load. Will the U.S. get a statement detailing where their money is going? We have no idea here in Canada, and no one seems to be even asking.
