NASA says Antarctica is losing ice.
The Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets have decreased in mass.

NASA also says Antarctica is gaining ice.
the Antarctic ice sheet showed a net gain of 112 billion tons of ice a year from 1992 to 2001

The Sky is Falling In according to Gavin:
As the world reaches a globally significant carbon emissions milestone, the sky is literally falling as as result of climate change, says a top scientist at NASA.
This year was the hottest year on record according to the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and saw globally averaged concentrations of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere not seen in roughly three million years.
“Carbon dioxide cools the stratosphere and when the stratosphere cools, it actually shrinks the size of the atmosphere,” Gavin Schmidt, director of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, told National Observer.
“So if you’re about 80 kilometres up, you actually are seeing the sky falling. It’s going down by a number of kilometres.”
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!
So if the sky keeps on falling we will have to bend over to breath soon?
Bend over to inhale, stand up to exhale. Bend over to inhale, stand up to exhale…
In the NASA coverage of the report they state:
“According to the new analysis of satellite data, the Antarctic ice sheet showed a net gain of 112 billion tons of ice a year from 1992 to 2001. That net gain slowed to 82 billion tons of ice per year between 2003 and 2008.”
And Solar Cycle 24 is not exactly lively at this time just like in 2009.
This is going to cut into my Dermatologist’s business.
Gavin Schmidt is full of Sh….T

Note that CO2 HEATS the stratosphere so more CO2 means more heat and therefore a higher stratosphere.

The Greens got 500% of the spread between winner and loser in the Y2k election. The Dems lost, assimilated the ENTIRE anti-industrial agenda and won after the Bush asset-forfeiture crash brought back the Hooverville economy of the 1930s. Now ex-scientists willing to lie for work need look no farther than the Democratic (née Econazi) Party for patronage, funding and pats on the back.
How obvious does stuff have to be before it registers? Republican Party Christian National Socialism, lets face facts, is not the answer to global collectivist pseudoscience financed by Chinese communism.
