Forget global warming: Scientists discover glaciers in Asian mountain range are actually getting BIGGER
They compared observations made in 1999 and 2008 and found a marginal mass increase. They estimated the glaciers had gained between 0.11 and 0.22 metres of ice each year.
And they were able to do this from satellite pictures?
Isn’t that Amaaaazing?? /z
“The startling find has baffled scientists”
Snort, snort, snicker, snicker.
As is the glacier is Alaska, Hubbard Glacier
Mike Rowe of Dirty Jobs did a episode of the glacier but it has been pulled from their files.
...and the polar bear population is exploding.
The melting point of ice/freezing point of water will not change until the end of all time. I’m not worried about either polar ice cap drowning the world.
Global warming makes glaciers grow.
I wish deniers would just admit that growing icebergs are just one more sign the globe is warming up due to something that we need to pay more taxes to fight.
Science has spoken. We need trillions of dollars to reduce this warming - which is actually making icebergs grow around the world.
"...and Leon's getting l-a-a-arger."
Wow the real startling find is that the scientist that can tell us the human activity is causing planet wide climate change did know that a glacier would be growing.
Well I can hear the scientist now: After reevaluating our data and reconfiguring our computer models of the Earths climate we have determined that the Earth is cooling due to human activity.
We highly recommend that everybody panic and shut down all coal fire power plants. You should also park your car and ride bicycles.
Get a clue people climate science is in its infancy. Their computer models are too primitive to predict tomorrows rain storm let alone the average temperature next year. Their computer models are designed to get grants not predict the future.
Don’t worry, I’m sure the fundamentals of the theory will remain unchanged:
1. It is still proof of global warming
2. It is still Bush’s fault
there is a lot of growing evidence that many “losses” of ice around the world are not net losses but the results of shifting (always changing) wind patterns, wind patterns that are delivering the snowy precipitation more in some places while less in others
the man-made global warming alarmists are insisting that most all weather changes are due to “warming”, but they actuallu have the cart before the horse - IF there is “warming” going on, it is the RESULT of global weather pattern changes, not the other way around
Al Gore: Warm weather actually causes more ice in Asia because of trade winds and magic elves
Please understand that global warming takes place in the more developed countries only.
You forgot to say “unexpectantly.”
The scientists they are talking about would be baffled by a bowl of cornflakes.
There, they have an explanation.
Here in Helena we had non-accumulating snow most of today. It is currently 33 degrees with more snow forecast tonight. Would someone ask algore to pick the white courtesy telephone.
