Global Warming’s ‘Irreversible Glacier Retreat’ Theory Debunked as Antarctica Ice Reaches Record Highs
Wait a minute, wasn’t global warming supposed to melt all the ice and cause the sea to rise hundreds of feet? Apparently not as new research is showing that we are getting more ice not less.
At least, this is the claim made by Mark Serreze, director of the National Snow and Ice Data Centre.
Earlier this year, global warming was blamed for the ‘irreversible retreat’ of west Antarctic glaciers.
But now scientists claim that warming of the planet is in fact behind a paradoxical growth in South Pole sea ice.
The comments come as Antarctica’s sea ice set a record this week, reaching 815,448 square miles (1,312,000 square km) of ice above its normal range.
Scientists believe the shift is caused by water melting from beneath the Antarctic ice shelves and re-freezing back on the surface.
‘The primary reason for this is the nature of the circulation of the Southern Ocean–water heated in high southern latitudes is carried equatorward, to be replaced by colder waters upwelling from below, which inhibits ice loss,’ Mark Serreze, director of the National Snow and Ice Data Centre, told Harold Ambler at Talking About the Weather.
The real fact is, these so-called scientists really have no clue at all about what is going on with this wonderful earth of ours.
