Science? You can't handle the Science!
Dr Ian Joughin, of the American space agency's (Nasa) Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and Slawed Tulaczyk, of the University of California at Santa Cruz, say they have found "strong evidence" that the ice sheet in the Ross Sea area is growing, by 26.8 gigatons per year.while ignoring the following paragraphs in the same report:
He said the research only covered a relatively small area, over a short period of time and it was possible that what they were detecting was a minor fluctuation.It doesn't seem to matter how many times you use the word "Global" to these brain-suicides, they still point at the next snowflake to fall from the sky, even if it's the last snowflake in the world, and rant that it disproves everything.
He pointed out that there were other areas in West Antarctica where the ice was thinning significantly, such as the Pine Island Glacier and the Thwaites Glacier.
Apparently, there hasn't been enough scientific research done yet to be convincing, although some might argue that there has already been too much because bad apples get published that Myron and his friends to keep citing and lying are representative. Actually, it's obvious not enough has been published to fit their views, otherwise why would they need to cite a pulp science fiction novel:
"In his latest best seller State of Fear, Michael Crichton does a devastating expose of the way ecological groups have tweaked data and facts to create mass hysteria. He points out that we know astonishingly little about the environment. All sides make exaggerated claims."It wouldn't surprise us if the readers of Mr "libertarianleanings"
Blogger never followed his links. They all point to senile mugshots of Ronald Reagan, for all they care. This blogger did at least point to one of his earlier posts where he took the scientists to task for their funny numbers:
Do the arithmetic. Carbon dioxide concentration comes out to be .03723% of the troposphere, while methane represents .0001843%. The combined estimated increase in these two gases represents .0093413% of the total atmosphere... We're being asked to conclude that these trace gases in Earth's atmospheric blanket have some magical impact on its insulating qualities, while nitrogen, which makes up 78% of the atmosphere, and oxygen, which makes up 21% of the atmosphere have little bearing. Does this make any sense? Take a good look at the wording in this paragraph [from a scientific article]...And with that, he decided the earth was flat. While he is not in danger of falling off the planet, he does still have to live on it, and going around deluding himself and others about what is going on now because it would otherwise involve choosing how to change his life today, rather than being forced to change it later by far more painful future events is a remarkably stupid game plan. This libertarianism thought pattern has always been nihilist.
"Despite their relative scarcity, the most important trace gases in the Earth's atmosphere are the greenhouse gases... Despite being present in only 370 parts per million by volume of air, carbon dioxide and the other greenhouse gases help to keep the Earth 33°C warmer than it would otherwise be without an atmosphere."
Notice the part about how the "greenhouse gases help to keep the Earth 33°C warmer than it would otherwise be without an atmosphere." They know they're pushing a load of crap.
By the way, the average temperature of the moon is -46 degrees C. Would you like to buy it? It's yours. Now go and live on it.
