Antarctica is actually gaining ice, says NASA. Is global warming over?

November 3, 2015

A new NASA study found that Antarctica has been adding more ice than it’s been losing, challenging other research, including that of the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, that concludes that Earth’s southern continent is losing land ice overall.

In a paper published in the Journal of Glaciology on Friday, researchers from NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, the University of Maryland in College Park, and the engineering firm Sigma Space Corporation offer a new analysis of satellite data that show a net gain of 112 billion tons of ice a year from 1992 to 2001 in the Antarctic ice sheet.

That gain slowed to 82 billion tons of ice per year between 2003 and 2008.

    Variations in the Earth’s orbit, Axis wobble, and the reduced sun spot activity have all started a long term process that indicate the start toward a probable ice age in about 600 years. If man has any major effect on climate change, maybe it won’t be so bad and thus man will avoid the Great Lakes going under under 10,000 feet of ice. Glaciers will still be melting because it will take a couple decades to bring glacial core temperatures to near normal and the new snow higher up will push the ice faster down hill for many years yet. This will confuse those not aware how long it takes to change the temperature of huge things. But, on the whole, winters will get colder and snowier from this point on as the last two have in many places. Shop early it should be a white Christmas.
