Another "Oopsie!". Jay Zwally and the other people responsible for letting this climatological fact to publicly spill better be stopping at Lowes everyday to pick up moving bins for when they're cleaning out their offices in the very near future:
Recent NASA studies show the Antarctic ice sheet is gaining more mass than it is losing, ScienceDaily.com reports.
In 2013, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change said the Antarctic ice sheet had lost large amounts of mass with little or no gain, but new NASA studies say the opposite.
A new analysis of satellite data shows a net gain of 112 billion tons of ice a year from 1992 to 2001, according to ScienceDaily.com. The gain slowed to 82 billion tons per year between 2003 and 2008....
Zwally added that "Antarctica is not currently contributing to sea level rise, but is taking 0.23 millimeters per year away." [emphases added]
Ironically, the only error Mr. Zwally makes is in leaving unchallenged the notion that sea levels are rising, an indication that he's, wittingly or unwittingly, compartmentalizing his data about the growing Antarctic ice cap within the larger false global warming paradigm. But even if the Arctic ice cap were shrinking (which it is not), doesn't this illustrate quite obviously that, in the words of General Iroh, "It's all about the balance"? One polar ice cap shrinks, the other one grows, and vice versa? It's almost like it was a....cycle. And nature is full of cycles, from the microscopic to the cosmic, from the swirl of cream in your coffee to the Coriolis effect in your flushing toilet to the the immense twirling pinwheels of stars known as spiral galaxies. And how incredibly arrogant it is of leftwing extremists to suggest that the mere existence of puny modern human civilization could have any effect upon that sturdy and resilient balance.
And in any case, our planet is cooling, not warming, due to the looming solar cooling trend - which is part of its natural cycle.
Nice to see that there's still at least one quasi-scientist at NASA. Although I imagine he won't be for long.
