Um, Gore? Antarctic Ice Shelves Aren’t Melting After All


Another one of the global warming loons’ oft-parroted mantras – “the Antarctic ice shelves are melting” – has gone up in smoke. Twenty-year-old models which have been used by climate change fanatics to “prove” serious ice loss in the eastern Antarctic have been compared with reality for the first time – and guess what? Reality won.

A two-year study found that no ice in the Antarctic ice shelves is being lost at all. 

Yep, loons, your discredited guru – Al “The Science Has Been Settled” Gore has been proven wrong yet again. This is just one more example of why he refuses to debate global warming skeptics – or even to appear on panel discussions with anyone who challenges his claims. Gore’s excuse? He “doesn’t want to dignify” those who question climate change because “it’s not a matter of theory.”

Gore’s right; “it’s not a matter of theory,” it’s a matter of left-wing hoax and propaganda. (It’s also a matter of wealth redistribution – ultimately on a global level – but that’s another post for another time.)

Anyway, back to the Antarctic ice shelves:

“Previous ocean models have predicted temperatures and melt-rates that are too high, suggesting a significant mass-loss in this region that is actually not taking place,” according to Tore Hattermann of the Norwegian Polar Institute, a member of the team which has obtained two years’ worth of direct measurements from below the massive Fimbul Ice Shelf in eastern Antarctica – the first ever to be taken.

According to a statement from the American Geophysical Union announcing the new research:

It turns out that past studies, which were based on computer models without any direct data for comparison or guidance, overestimate the water temperatures and extent of melting beneath the Fimbul Ice Shelf. This has led to the misconception, Hattermann said, that the ice shelf is losing mass at a faster rate than it is gaining mass, leading to an overall loss of mass.

The team’s results show that water temperatures are far lower than computer models predicted.  

Hatterman and his colleagues, using hot-water drilling equipment, bored holes more than 650 feet deep through the Fimbul Shelf, which spans an area roughly twice the size of New Jersey. The location of each hole was carefully chosen so that the various pathways by which water moves beneath the ice shelf could be observed. Sophisticated temperature-measuring instruments were lowered into each hole. Additionally, the team supplemented its findings with data provided by the Marine Mammal Exploration of the Oceans Pole to Pole (MEOP) study, which gathered information by attaching sensors to elephant seals.

“Nobody was expecting that the MEOP seals from Bouvetoya would swim straight to the Antarctic and stay along the Fimbul Ice Shelf for the entire winter,” Hattermann says. “But this behavior certainly provided an impressive and unique data set.”

Other than further loss of credibility – assuming that Gore had any credibility left to lose – the study drives another nail into the coffin of the increasingly-debunked man-made global-warming hoax. Gore – who has made hundreds of millions of dollars as a direct result of the hoax he continues to champion – was right in one respect: Climate change is not a matter of theory; it is a matter of science. 

Not to add insult to injury, but the Nature Journal of Science, ranked as the world’s most-cited scientific periodical, has published a definitive study on global warming which proves that the dominant factors of temperatures in the Earth’s atmosphere are galactic cosmic rays and the sun, not man. The research was conducted by CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research. One of the report’s authors, Professor Jyrki Kauppinen, summed up his conclusions regarding the potential for man-made global warming: “I think it is such a blatant falsification.” Me too, Jyrki, me too.

The problem for Gore and his minions is this: “the science” has not “been settled” in their favor; “the science” continues to prove them wrong at every turn. But hey – Gore gets to keep the hundreds of millions of dollars; he’ll be just fine.


Have you noticed how the loons are beginning to refer to “climate change” vs. “global warming”? That way, they think they cover their asses – regardless of which direction the temperature moves.

  1. So last week Hillary Clinton was in Rio at the Global Climate Conference where she gave away $2 Billion to be distributed to third world countries to fight Global Climate Change and opened the door to for a Global EPA. How much more can/will the taxpayers in this country take?

    • I saw that. Unbelievable, huh? I’ve written more than a few articles on the subject, which can be viewed by entering “global warming” into my search engine.

      Make no mistake; the global warming hoax is all about wealth redistribution. First it was America; “carbon offsets” -which made millions for Gore. Now, it’s the UN and a Global EPA – set up to redistribute wealth from prosperous nations to third-world countries.

      Time to wise up, America.

      • I just can’t believe how many people still fall for this stuff. Of course our kids are being brainwashed in our Public Propaganda Institutions on this and many other subjects as well.

        • No doubt.

          There are two primary groups who believe this “stuff”, flyover; what I’ll call the “Chicken Little – sky is falling” crowd (who are by and large, harmless), and the radical left – who despise our country, our industry and conservatism – and seek both the redistribution of wealth and a comeuppance for America.

  2. With all the fun I had yesterday with my twin personalities…now WordPress is denying access to the unit (I also posted as decoop, worked yesterday). Oh well, fun while it lasted in a time of serious Constitutional crisis. This is a test. Forgive me, I do recognize the seriousness of what’s going on, even while Congress takes a break (joke), Obama plans 4th. golf trip, and Michelle is where?

    • Would appreciate it if you would keep it to one of your personalities, unit. :-)

    • Surprise to unit and decoop…it did work. I’m out of here til big day tomorrow. Good luck to both of us and all in our Nation. :)

      • Man….. really…I didn’t think it would keep working. Never knew how I did it in the first place. WordPress denied unit earlier, OK, I’ll just be me. Unit or decoop? I’ll stick with what they next take. After all I’m either one! Neither subverts America, the U.S.A.

          • I do like that… decoopunit…like fudgeripple ice cream sort of. Very visible, transparent and open. One can see what blends together patriotic wise. Solid and together. Be all that you can be (once the Army motif in the ’90’s). Not promising “hope and change” (running this way and that , hoping to lick the rewards). Looking for continuity and stability…which works. Appreciate you indulgence to nurture me to my comeuppance. But I am a unit (Mark Levin program in November…those who are 70 which will become the cut off age for medical care in the near future). If I can just hit the right button to sign on as unit. :)

  3. “Global Warming” is a misnomer. I’m not a researcher, I’m not a scientist but everybody’s got an opinion and I have mine. You can’t make me believe that mankind has not caused climate change in some form since the dawn of the industrial age. Wake up, people—this is just one study.

    • The term “global warming” was coined by the alarmists – not the skeptics who continue to be proven right – study after study. This post alone quotes two separate sources. From doctored data to thermometers placed at the ends of airport runways, man-made “global warming” or “climate change” has been a political scheme with an agenda ever since it was seized upon by Al Gore & Co.

      Of course, it all began to unravel with ClimateGate a couple of years back, but isn’t interesting that Gore will never debate anyone who disagrees with him? Why is that? If I believed something with the same level of maniacal fervor, I’d be chomping at the bit to debate all comers. What’s he afraid of?

      The fact is this; the earth’s climate cycles – as does the solar system’s; it always has.

      • You are right about the earth’s climate cycles Rat but you can’t deny man’s influence. I lean to the left but I appreciate this dialog.

        • I don’t deny that man has some impact on the environment, i.e. greenhouse gasses and the like. But – the mass hysteria created by the alarmists has been over-the-top – and it has been dishonest.

          And, as I suggested in the post, it is ultimately about wealth redistribution. All one need do is look to the UN and its climate agenda – not to mention Gore’s ridiculous “carbon offset” nonsense.

          The earth has a miraculous ability to heal itself. Remember the dire predictions surrounding the BP oil spill in the Gulf? Where is the oil? I know how much you hate to here it, libs, but Limbaugh was right. I realize there may be long-term effects yet to be discovered, but for now? Not so much.

          Finally, as a conservative, of course I believe that we need to be good stewards of the planet, but Gore & Co. and the hysteria they created were disingenuous at best – and criminal at worst.

          I do, by the way, appreciate liberals such as yourself who can participate in an honest dialogue without resulting to viciousness and name-calling.

          • Exactly Rat! Good stewardship of all good things is just common sense. Radical alarmists like Gore are using people’s good intentions to pad their own pockets and create emergencies where there are none!

  4. Cuando llega el invierno, el primero que hacer es cálido, una chaqueta ligera es la mejor opción para mantener el calor, y la mayoría de la gente piensa que llevaba una chaqueta de abajo es muy torpe, usar una campera de abrigo, llevaba un pequeño punto, todavía resisten el invierno, hermoso y no tiene miedo Usted puede hacer lo mismo frío de este invierno va a ser una chaqueta Fashion Week!
