Now We Have Zombie Ice Melting From Climate Crisis (scam)

Hey, look, something new from the Cult of Climastrology!

Zombie ice from Greenland will raise sea level 10 inches

Greenland’s rapidly melting ice sheet will eventually raise global sea level by at least 10.6 inches (27 centimeters) — more than twice as much as previously forecast — according to a study published Monday.

That’s because of something that could be called zombie ice. That’s doomed ice that, while still attached to thicker areas of ice, is no longer getting replenished by parent glaciers now receiving less snow. Without replenishment, the doomed ice is melting from climate change and will inevitably raise seas, said study co-author William Colgan, a glaciologist at the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland.

The unavoidable ten inches in the study is more than twice as much sea level rise as scientists had previously expected from the melting of Greenland’s ice sheet. The study in the journal Nature Climate Change said it could reach as much as 30 inches (78 centimeters). By contrast, last year’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report projected a range of 2 to 5 inches (6 to 13 centimeters) for likely sea level rise from Greenland ice melt by the year 2100.

The 20th Century sea rise level was 8 inches, which is average for a Holocene century. It should have been much higher for a warm period. And, it is not accelerating. Facts are meaningless to the climate cult.

One of the study authors said that more than 120 trillion tons (110 trillion metric tons) of ice is already doomed to melt from the warming ice sheet’s inability to replenish its edges. When that ice melts into water, if it were concentrated only over the United States, it would be 37 feet (11 meters) deep.

More scaremongering, eh?

The figures are a global average for sea level rise, but some places further away from Greenland would get more and places closer, like the U.S. East Coast, would get less. Although 10.6 inches may not sound like much, this would be over and above high tides and storms, making them even worse, so this much sea level rise “will have huge societal, economic and environmental impacts,” said Ellyn Enderlin, a geosciences professor at Boise State University, who wasn’t part of the study.

This allows the cultists to use natural sea rise along with land changes to blame you.

Colgan responded that the team doesn’t know how long it will take for all the doomed ice to melt, but making an educated guess, it would probably be by the end of this century, or at least by 2150.

Well, that’s convenient.

    not to sound like i’m bragging, or anything, but, i have already survived 6 enviro Apocalypses.
    i thought al gore predicted the artic would be ice free by 2010…or was it 2015.. no 2020.. newest update, 2030. the ocean was suppose to be dead due globull warming by 2000…er.. 2017…er.. never mind. costal areas were suppose to be under water several years ago. that’s why the obamas, bernie sanders, and others have bought million dollar beach front poroperty.
    sea levels to rise soon??? ho hum… will believe it when i see it. till then leave me alone and let me live my life in peace.

      Sorry xtron but one thing is for sure, leftists and climate crazies will never leave you alone.

    Stupid, mentally weak ice!! Like liberals, ice believes in the global warming scam and melts!

    • Jl says:

      Like stupid liberals, ice has forgotten that it melted before with CO2 much lower!
      Plus, the “zombie ice” is simply what cult member Seth added to increase the fear porn.
