New Satellite Maps Show Greenland And Antarctic Ice Caps Melting At Unprecedented Rate

H/t reader squodgy:

“So, who the hell do we believe???”

If we consider low temperature and sea-ice records the volcano theory seems to be the only one that does make sense …

New Satellite Maps Show World’s Major Ice Caps Melting at Unprecedented Rate (Eco Watch, Sep 1, 2014):

 German researchers have established the height of the Greenland and Antarctic ice caps with greater precision than ever before. And the new maps they have produced show that the ice is melting at an unprecedented rate.

The maps, produced with a satellite-mounted instrument, have elevation accuracies to within a few metres. Since Greenland’s ice cap is more than 2,000 metres thick on average, and the Antarctic bedrock supports 61 percent of the planet’s fresh water, this means that scientists can make more accurate assessments of annual melting.

Dr Veit Helm and other glaciologists at the Alfred Wegener Institute’s Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research in Bremerhaven, Germany, report in the journal The Cryosphere that, between them, the two ice sheets are now losing ice at the unprecedented rate of 500 cubic kilometers a year.

Confirmed: Microbial Life Found Half Mile Below Antarctic Ice Sheet

I wasn’t surprised to find life under there, but I was surprised how much life there was, and how they made a living. They are essentially eating the Earth.
– John Priscu, lead scientist

Scientists present definitive proof that life exists .5 miles beneath the ice sheet in the Antarctic lake. Pictured here, a coccoid shaped microbial cell with an attached sediment particle from the Subglacial Lake Whillans water column

Confirmed: Microbial life found half mile below Antarctic ice sheet (Los Angeles Times, Aug 20, 2014):

In an icy lake half a mile beneath the Antarctic ice sheet, scientists have discovered a diverse ecosystem of single-celled organisms that have managed to survive without ever seeing the light of the sun.

The discovery, reported Wednesday in the journal Nature is not so much a surprise as a triumph of science and engineering. The research team spent 10 years and more than $10 million to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that life did indeed exist in subglacial lakes near the South Pole.

“It’s the real deal,” said Peter Doran, an Earth scientist at the University of Illinois at Chicago, who was not involved in the study. “There was news that they found life early this year, but a bunch of us were waiting for the peer reviewed paper to come out before we jumped for joy.”

Coldest June since measurements began in Adélie Land, Antarctica  (The Watchers, July 14, 2014):

Meteo-France is reporting an unusually cold month of June at their station base Dumont d’Urville located in Adélie Land (Terre Adélie), Antarctica. They recorded an average temperature of -22.4° C throughout June, which is 6.6° C lower than normal temperature for the period from 1981 – 2010.

This makes June 2014 the coldest June since measurements began in 1956, and the second coldest month of all months combined (after September 1958 with -23.5° C).

The daily temperature for June was also beaten with -34.9° C recorded, previous record was -33.4° C.

Arctic Ice Brake-Up Is NASA’s ‘Most Deluded Scare Story Ever’

Ice has been accumulating, not melting in the Southern Hemisphere-2

Arctic Ice Brake-up is NASA’s ‘most deluded scare story ever’  (The Real Agenda news, May 14, 2014):

“Unstoppable break-up of SOME Antarctic Ice due to non-existent Global-Warming threatens sea level Rise in 200 years time,” says Piers Corbyn.

Western media alarmism has spiked this month after NASA ‘revealed’ that a large section of the Antarctic shell was breaking off and will soon make sea levels rise to cover us all. The year of mid-term elections seems to be the year of hyped politics as NASA and the U.S. government continues to spread the lies about man-made global warming.

In the most recent example of how out of proportion statements help scare people, NASA used cherry-picked data and speculation to say that a ‘gigantic’ piece of West Antarctica  is now melting and falling into the sea. NASA did not mention anything about the state of the whole Antarctic & South Hemisphere, mainly because it does not fit the narrative and scare tactics of the climate change alarmists. One entity that has gone the extra mile to explain the reality of ice caps in the Antarctica was the most-respected National Snow and Ice Data Center.

In the graph below, the organization shows that, at least for the last 35 years, ice has been accumulating, not melting in the Southern Hemisphere.

Melting Of Antarctic Ice Sheet And 3-Meter Sea Level Rise Inevitable (RT) – Western Antarctic Ice Sheet Collapse Has Already Begun, Scientists Warn (Guardian)

Commentary:

Massive climate changes are happening right now on planet earth for a multitude of reasons and this is not the place, nor do I have the time, to discuss all of them here.

I do NOT deny that the melting of Antarctic ice sheet will happen and is already happening.

However, I do Not believe that this is due to global warming.

There is no man-made global warming and there is not even global warming.

If the elitists are indeed successful with their global warming propaganda they will earn an awful lot of money. 

Even an elite puppet like Al Gore would make billions:

Al Gore could become world’s first carbon billionaire

Why would we trust the same people that rip us off all of the time, just because they are now pretending that they really do care for the planet?

They f*$$$$* don’t:

Al Gore’s Enormous Carbon Footprint

Must-see:

“I believe it is appropriate to have an over-representation of… how dangerous it is.”
– Al Gore

“It doesn’t matter what is true, it only matters what people believe is true.”
– Paul Watson, Greenpeace

“We’ve got to ride the global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing.”
– leftist Senator Tim Wirth, 1993

“We have to offer up scary scenarios… each of us has to decide the right balance between being effective and being honest.”
– Stephen Schneider, lead ipcc author, 1989

“Unless we announce disasters no one will listen.”
– Sir John Houghton, first chairman of the IPCC

“The only way to get our society to truly change is to frighten people with the possibility of a catastrophe.”
– Daniel Botkin, ex Chair of Enironmental Studies, UCSB

But these clowns seem to get away with everything:

Al Gore sued by over 30.000 Scientists for fraud

And Al Gore really is ‘brilliant’:

Al Gore: ‘The Interior Of The earth Is Extremely Hot – Several Million Degrees!’

So here is what I believe to be the real reason behind the melting of the Antarctic ice sheet:

Volcanoes all over the planet are going crazy ….

Volcanoes All Over The Ring Of Fire Are Erupting Right Now – Is The U.S. Next?

Scientists Assure Us That The Recent Earthquakes On The Ring Of Fire Are Not Related

… and there are volcanoes under the ice …

Active Volcano Found Under Antarctic Ice: Eruption Could Raise Sea Levels (National Geographic, Nov 18, 2013):

Inevitable eruption will speed up ice loss on frozen continent, study says.

A newly discovered volcano found buried beneath a thick layer of ice in Antarctica could speed up ice loss and raise global sea levels when it erupts, scientists say.

… and scientists have found “big variations in the temperature in the mantle across parts of Antarctica”:

What’s Under Antarctica? Quake Waves Give First Look (livescience, April 6, 2012):

“We do see these big variations in the temperature in the mantle across parts of Antarctica that will have a big effect on the ice sheet,” Wiens said.

So for me it is volcanic activity that melts the Antarctic ice sheet.

And then there is this:

‘Russian Winter Goes EXTREME’ (Pravda): -50 Degrees Celsius In Siberia …. Video: ‘USDA Says NEW WARM LATITUDES Shift North = Russia/Sibera North Pole’

Scientists Say The Magnetic North Pole Is Moving At 40 Miles Per Year Toward Russia And The Fallout Has Reached – Of All Places -Tampa International Airport

Earth’s North Magnetic Pole is Racing Toward Russia at Almost 64 Kilometers a Year Due to Core Flux

Now that in and of itself should cause climate change all over the planet, or not?

And how about the Arctic ice?

Arctic Ice Sheets Rapidly Expand, Planet Plunges Into Global Cooling, Global Warming Computer Models Collapse

How come the Artic ice sheets are rapidly expanding?

The elitists know that the world is cooling and here is the Bilderberg group’s discussion agenda from 2010:

Global Cooling and the New World Order (Telegraph):

“The 58th Bilderberg Meeting will be held in Sitges, Spain 3 – 6 June 2010. The Conference will deal mainly with Financial Reform, Security, Cyber Technology, Energy, Pakistan, Afghanistan, World Food Problem, Global Cooling, Social Networking, Medical Science, EU-US relations.”

Yep, that’s right. Global Cooling.

Always ‘follow the money’:

JPMorgan Employee Who Invented Credit Default Swaps is One of the Key Architects of Carbon Derivatives, Which Would Be at the Very CENTER of Cap and Trade

And then there is the sun, which is and has been the only engine behind global warming and cooling:

Sun Flatlining Into Grand Minimum, Says Solar Physicist (Forbes)

And …

Ice ages correlate with increases in volcanic activity:

“Whenever solar radiation has decreased and volcanic activity has increased, global temperatures suddenly plummet…often within weeks or months,” says climatologist Cliff Harris and meteorologist Randy Mann.


Melting of Antarctic ice sheet and 3-meter sea level rise inevitable - study

Melting of Antarctic ice sheet and 3-meter sea level rise inevitable – study (RT, May 12, 2014):

Massive regions of the ice sheet that makes up West Antarctica have begun collapsing in a process that scientists have worried about for decades and fear is likely unstoppable.

Researchers warned that the accelerated pace of disintegration is expected to remain relatively slow over the next 100 years, although after that point it will speed up so fast that it could become a major issue for seaside cities. Ocean levels could rise by at least three meters, according to two papers scheduled for publication this week in the Science and Geophysical Research Letters.

Ship Sent To Rescue GLOBAL WARMING Researchers Trapped In Antarctic, Gets Trapped In Antarctic

Ship Sent To Rescue Global Warming Researchers Trapped In Antarctic, Gets Trapped In Antarctic (ZeroHedge, Jan 3, 2014):

From ironic to ironic-er… the Chinese icebreaker ship that helped rescue the 52 Australian global warming researchers from being trapped in Antarctic ice has found itself stuck in heavy ice. As Reuters reports, The Snow Dragon had ferried the passengers from the stranded Russian ship to an Australian icebreaker late on Thursday. It now had concerns about its own ability to move through heavy ice, the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) said.
