Frozen Underworld Discovered Beneath Greenland Ice Sheet (Mountains of Ice)
The Guardian ^ | June 15, 2014 16:00 GMT | Suzanne Goldenberg

Scientists have discovered a frozen underworld beneath the ice sheet covering northern Greenland.

The previously unknown landscape, a vast expanse of warped shapes including some as tall as a Manhattan skyscraper, was found using ice-penetrating radar loaded aboard Nasa survey flights.

The findings and the first images of the frozen world more than a mile below the surface of the ice sheet are published on Sunday in the journal Nature Geoscience.

...

Until recently, scientists studying the Greenland ice sheet for evidence of change under global warming had thought the shapes they discerned beneath the ice sheet were mountain ranges.

Well ain't that another kick in AlGore's groin. More ice found under Greenland, what was "THOUGHT" to be huge mountains.

Note to climate change ‘scientists’. Climates ‘change’. We don’t live in a static system. Perhaps a remedial class or two could save you some embarrassment...and give the rest of us relief from your non-scientific agendas.

Great! More ice for Algore and his Flat Earth crowd to worry about.

You evil man! Climate change caused by man, not volcanic activity or the sun could cause a change in the delicate balance that leads to the formation of these subglacial structures!!!!!!

Evil you are....just evil...

We are at fault. Period. Our power is greater than anything and we can bend nature to our will. And we each haZ our own personal truths too.

Melting that ice would create huge vacuums. Collapse is imminent.

So - underneath the ice sheet covering Greenland they found - more ice?

Well ain't that something?

The irony’s so thick you couldn’t cut it with a buzz saw.

Now lets see how the algore groupies spin this discovery into a “see we told you so” moment.

Impossible. Greenland has no ice. I heard there would be no arctic ice anymore.

I just finished a flight over Greenland last week on my way to Copenhagen. I thought it was endless clouds but it was featureless flat ice until the plane got to the coast.

You’re probably right, even after the article said:

“The melting and re-freezing at the bottom of the ice sheet has been underway for hundreds of thousands of years.”

That’s the way the climate fatheads work. Mankind has been burning too much coal and it’s all the neanderthals’ fault!

Topo of Greenland bedrock.

When if the ice melts, there will be a lake that will rival the worlds largest lakes, and it will retain the majority of the melt due to volumetric contraction and Isostatic Rebound.

Similar discoveries of massive canyons and basins have been made under Antarctica recently as well. Too bad, so sad for the doom and gloomers.

Contemptible illiterate albeit hoodwinked carbon unit who needs to address his own deficiencies.

Contrary to popular belief the dictionary is your friend..... and wether you are professing to chastise another, your: " And we each haZ our own personal truths too."

Although well said and misspelled, being a critical carbon unit and failing at it, is all the much worse, than just being ignorant.

Actually there is something worse. Not recognizing sarcasm and mockery.

If you look in a regular dictionary, you would mistakenly believe that the word “haZ” is not in fact, a word. But if you look in the Cheezbyrger.com dictionary of internet cat speak, from which the word was taken, you would see that ‘haZ” is in fact the correct spelling, including capitalization of the Z at the end.

In context, the word haZ ‘has’ many applications. In a question, usage would be “I can haZ a cheezeburger?” As a declarative statement, it would be “I haZ a sad.”

Often the question form is answered by the phrase, “No you stupid cat, you cannot haZ a cheezeburger” which then causes the cat to declare that he ‘haZ a sad.”

In the context of my post it was used in the declarative, recognizing the liberal desire to avoid reality to ‘haZ” thuths which are in fact fantasies, much like the idea of a talking cat and dictionaries of their language.

As such, use of nonsense words when dealing with liberals and liberal subjects is most often called ‘sarcasm’, which can in fact, be found in the dictionary you mentioned. You might find the definition interesting ;)

It only took 50 or more years to bury some WWII planes under more than 200 ft of ice!http://www.nytimes.com/1988/08/04/us/world-war-ii-planes-found-in-greenland-in-ice-260-feet-deep.html
