The Nick Stokes Glacial Theory

Nick Stokes has advanced an amazing new theory that ten miles of a 2,000 foot thick glacier melted during two months of summer in 2012, at temperatures barely above freezing.

Climate alarmism and basic physics, don’t mix.

    I didn’t say it melted. I said two months of summer made a big difference. And it did. The glacier has grown since August 30, 2012, following summer calving. But not since June 30th, 2012.

    In fact the graph posted by J Calvert shows the true story. The glacier is almost always growing, except when it is not. Then it calves large chunks, and the net result is that the glacier overall recedes over decades. In 2009 you could equally have said that the glacier had been growing since 2002. But then, oops.

      Complete nonsense. The glacier has been growing steadily since 2012. You claimed that it retreats in summer. That doesn’t happen and makes no sense.

      Thanks Nick for admitting that the mythical “climate change” has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with it.

      It is the natural growth, and calving that can happen whenever it happens.

      And as you say, it just keeps on growing.

      Great to see that you KNOW it doesn’t melt.

      You always did have trouble keeping the AGW lies coherent, Nick. ;-)

      Thanks Captain Obvious.

      “Then it calves large chunks, and the net result is that the glacier overall recedes over decades.”

      Do you have any idea why a glacier calves large chunks? Do you think that is caused by 50 ppm of CO2?

      Once again Nick, this is why only your sycophants pay any attention to you. You have virtually zero integrity. You are shill for alarmists.

    I hate to say it – and of course, I could be wrong, but there was a huge floe that calved off the Petermann between June 30, 2012, and August 31 … for what it’s worth.

    GIF from NASA Worldview –

    BTW … I’m a fan of your work. Any extent his critique has merit – beyond inadvertently exposing places to look for fake climate news in alarmists’ event reports (ie. maybe this is him projecting a technique, eh?) – I leave to others to decide….

    How bout that hottest June of the last 250 years?

    Dumb ignorant Ms slur…

    Chooses COLDEST period of the last 10,000 years as his start point.

    THANK GOODNBESS for the very slight warming. !

    Go and live in Northern Russia if you like the cold, boso. !

    In another unusual example of back to back miracles, “6′ of hail fell in Jalisco, Mexico”, and moments later trucks buried in it drove away unscathed. A possible third miracle is understanding what happens when a hail storm drops a big load during a flash flood because clearly, 6′ of ice did not fall out of the sky.

    • rah says:

      The rain floats the hail to areas of drainage be they man made or natural, and that is where it piles up.

      • dp says:

        That is not just the third miracle, that is what happened. Evidenced by the trucks driving through chest-high water with a thin layer of hail floating on top. Leave it to the press to imagine 6′ of ice fell from the sky.

    • spike55 says:

      If you look, you will see that there is no hail on rooftops.
