Mass gains of Antarctic Ice Sheet greater than losses

Filed under: Evidens, FN, Greenies, IPCC, Klima, Videnskab — Tags: , — Hodja @ 07:37

A new NASA study says that an increase in Antarctic snow accumulation that began 10,000 years ago is currently adding enough ice to the continent to outweigh the increased losses from its thinning glaciers.

The research challenges the conclusions of other studies, including the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) 2013 report, which says that Antarctica is overall losing land ice.

NASA: Isen på Polerne smelter ikke

Filed under: Greenies, Medier DR m.fl. — Tags: , , , — Hodja @ 16:09

Updated data from NASA satellite instruments reveal the Earth’s polar ice caps have not receded at all since the satellite instruments began measuring the ice caps in 1979.

Since the end of 2012, moreover, total polar ice extent has largely remained above the post-1979 average. The updated data contradict one of the most frequently asserted global warming claims – that global warming is causing the polar ice caps to recede.

[…]

Now, in May 2015, the updated NASA data show polar sea ice is approximately 5 percent above the post-1979 average.

Havisen ved Antarktis sætter hidtil uset rekord

Filed under: Økofascisme, Evidens, FN, Greenies, Internationalt, Klima, Videnskab — Tags: , — Hodja @ 21:50

Not only was last year’s all-time high sea ice record beaten this year, but smashed it by such a wide a margin that is meteorologically unworldly.

If anyone is searching for a sign of a “tipping point”, this could be one. Unfortunately the tip seems to be in the opposite direction!

At least week’s Saturday Summary, Joe Bastardi even compared the South Pole’s new record to King Kong belting a 700-foot home run out of the ballpark. Not wanting to get too carried away, we have to keep in mind that we are looking here at the satellite record only, which goes back to 1979. Yet, it is still truly amazing by any standard.

Smeltende havis fanger den ene isbryder efter den anden midt i den Antarktiske sommer

Efter at have reddet 52 passagerer ved Sydpolen er en kinesisk isbryder selv blevet fanget i isen.

Og medierne fortsætter med at lade som om, de ikke ved, at passagererne på på det russiske skib Akademik Schokalskiy var varmister, der ville påvise, at isen forsvinder.

Giv agt: Nye klimaløgne i sigte

Fredag den 30. november skriver metroXpress i en stor overskrift: “Al tvivl er væk: Isen smelter”

Overskriften baseres på en ny artikel i tidsskriftet Science, hvor 3 danske ‘forskere’ har deltaget. Avisen skriver “10 sattelitter, 47 videnskabsmænd og 19 års indsamling af data. Det var hvad der skulle slå fast, at isen smelter ved polerne.” Vidre skriver de: “I 2011 satte forskerne sig derfor sammen og blev enige om at måle og veje isen i fællesskab.”

Udover at den præstation at veje isen på Arktis, Grønland og Antarktis er en imponerende indsats, glemmer man at fortælle, at det ikke er ny forskning, man fremlægger, men at det drejer sig om en form for metaanalyse, som blot er en analyse af andres videnskabelige arbejder. Det siger sig selv, at det resultat, der kommer ud af en metaanalyse afhænger af, hvilke forskningsresultater, man vælger at inddrage. Forskerne kommer i øvrigt frem til at havene stiger 0,6 mm om året – dvs 6 cm på 100 år.

Hovedforfatteren til artiklen i Science siger i øvrigt:

Scientists note that current climate-change models predict that some parts of the Antarctic ice sheet will grow while other parts will shrink, and that parts of the Greenland ice also will melt. Observations have borne out these projections so far.

“The signals suggest there is no immediate threat” from rising sea levels, Prof. Shepherd said. “But we can at least warn people that there are instabilities that need to be investigated.”

Så drik lige et glas isvand til. Indenfor medicinsk forskning siger man i øvrigt, at hvis konklusionen på et videnskabeligt arbejde er, at der skal mere forskning til – hvorfor udgav forfatterne da i det hele taget dette studie?

Om metaanalyser:

The most severe weakness and abuse of meta-analysis often occurs when the person or persons doing the meta-analysis have an economic, social, or political agenda such as the passage or defeat of legislation. Those persons with these types of agenda have a high likelihood to abuse meta-analysis due to personal bias. For example, researchers favorable to the author’s agenda are likely to have their studies cherry picked while those not favorable will be ignored or labeled as “not credible”. In addition, the favored authors may themselves be biased or paid to produce results that support their overall political, social, or economic goals in ways such as selecting small favorable data sets and not incorporating larger unfavorable data sets.

Her er din klimafremtid, hvis loonierne skal bestemme:

So what will I do differently? I haven’t flown for almost eight years – and that will have to continue. I have halved the distance I drive each year and have significantly changed how I drive. I’ve done without a fridge for 12 years, but recently relented and joined the very small proportion of the world’s population that has a fridge – this I may have to reverse! I’ve cut back on washing and showering – but only to levels that were the norm just a few years back. All this is a start but it is not enough.

Et isfjell på størrelse med Luxembourg har løsnet fra en isbre i Antarktis.

Forskere sier at det enorme isfjellet kan påvirke havstrømmene rundt Jorden.

Hvis havstrømmene forandres, kan det blant annet føre til kaldere vintre i Nord-Atlanteren, ifølge forskerne.

Larmende tavshed: Afsmeltningen fra Antarktis den mindste i hele sattelithistorien

Where are the headlines? Where are the press releases? Where is all the attention?

The ice melt across during the Antarctic summer (October-January) of 2008-2009 was the lowest ever recorded in the satellite history.

Such was the finding reported last week by Marco Tedesco and Andrew Monaghan in the journal Geophysical Research Letters:
