NASA Study: Mass Gains of Antarctic Ice Sheet Greater than Losses

Also from NASA:-

Satellite data show that Earth's polar ice sheets are losing mass at a rate of 412 gigatonnes per year

Isn't it strange how you simply ignore the dozens of studies which disagree with the findings in the link above, and only ever post things which you can warp and distort to fit into your batshit neo-Nazi narrative?

The study itself that you have linked acknowledges the harmful effect of AGW and its associated ice loss, but merely contends that there have so far been gains to offset the losses. It also stipulates that those gains will not last more than 20 or 30 years.

Of course you don't mention this, because it doesn't fit in with your absurdly stupid narrative that -- wait for it -- NASA is involved in an international global warming hoax.

Yes, that's right guys. The Nazi who linked your study spends his days telling everybody that NASA is willingly promoting a hoax, but he links them every time he can distort something they say.

From your own source, Herr Imbecile:-

But it might only take a few decades for Antarctica’s growth to reverse, according to Zwally. “If the losses of the Antarctic Peninsula and parts of West Antarctica continue to increase at the same rate they’ve been increasing for the last two decades, the losses will catch up with the long-term gain in East Antarctica in 20 or 30 years -- I don’t think there will be enough snowfall increase to offset these losses.”

Right nom. They say it "might" snow tomorrow, and it doesn't, but they know the weather and climate in 30 years. Keep living the dream buddy. Keep living the dream...

So lets get down to the facts ok?

.27 millimeters per year is .010 thousants of an inch! That would take 100 years for the ocean to rise 1 inch. Now we are seeing increased ice that would counter even these small numbers.

Remember when these Global cooling, I mean Global warming, I mean climate change doomsayers were telling us how beach front homes would be floating in the ocean in a matter of decades?

These deceptive people on the Left can never be trusted or believed. They have a political agenda and will lie to their dying breath.

You do realize by ignoring scientists on climate change you are dooming future generations, right? The facts of reality are laying out right before you, but you chose not to see them. Nothing is more telling when it comes to this issue, conservatives would rather enjoy a slightly more comfort lifestyle driving around big SUVs than care for the environment and makes sure there is something left for their children. We are the ones trying to build a better world, while you are the fools who are killing our children. Yet you accuse us of not valuing human life? Shame on you, Fromwithin. Shame. On. You.

You can't use logic against the right, buddy. They don't understand how it works and they are always too busy hating blacks/Muslims/gays/atheists to learn.

You do realize that you are being indoctrinated by the Left to spend trillions of dollars on environmental issues. Issues the Left has been pushing LONG BEFORE any mention of Global cooling, or Global warming, and now Climate change.

Why are you so quick to believe politicians with an agenda to rid our nation of fossil fuels, when no one has a clue if this is just one of many past Climate changes.

If these climate changes are man made, then the entire world must be willing to make the same changes being forced onto America by these Left wing environmentalists. The Left wants America to spend many trillions of dollars (ON THEIR THEORY), putting America at a huge disadvantage to other nations such as China, etc. etc., who are unwilling to change.

Hello From:

How ya doing?? We talk so little these days since you PERMA- BANNED me.. Nonetheless, I'm glad we can get together on these neutral threads..

Look.. I'm NOT a scientist.. You're NOT either. So, YOUR facts aren't facts at all.. They're opinions. However, real scientists, like those at NASA, present a different set of facts.. Being SCIENTISTS, you'll pardon me if I believe them and not you.

The good news is, that after 8 years of denial after denial, the Republican congress has been REPLACED with reality based people..

I just quoted the facts by scientists of a .27 millimeters rise in oceans per year.

It is you ignoring the facts.
