Ignore The Evidence Of Your Eyes And Ears

“Except over a small area, it is generally understood, the glaciers of the world are retreating to the mountains. The glacier on Mount Sermiento in South America, which descended to the sea when Darwin found it in 1836, is now separated from the shore by a vigorous growth of timber. The Jacobshaven glacier in Greenland has retreated four miles since 1850, and the East glacier in Spitzbergen is more than a mile away from its original terminal”

In March, a NASA-led research team announced that Jakobshavn Isbrae, is … thickening and advancing toward the ocean

Following the study’s publication, additional analyses show Jakobshavn grew thicker by 22 and 33 yards (20 to 30 meters) each year from 2016 to 2019.”

Greenland’s Petermann Glacier has grown more than 5km over the past nine years.

According to NASA, glaciers melt during the coldest years on record and they grow during the hottest years on record, and this bad news.

    Hi Tony,

    Since your background is in electrical engineering, I thought you might get a kick out of this:

    Russia’s trade minister shares his experience of driving a Tesla in winter

    “It has a claimed range of up to 450km, but my experience shows that, after being parked for an hour and half at -30 degrees Celsius, the vehicle is barely able to get me home, as the remaining range was only enough to drive less than 100km – in fact, even less,” Manturov said.


    *That is about 60 miles on a full charge at -30 degrees C. (lol)

    Facts are “bad news for global warming “ because they point out the fallacy of the alarmist’s pronouncements

  3. Gamecock says:

    According to the United States of America*,

    ‘For thousands of years, the glaciers naturally cycled through periods of advance and retreat. The park’s current glaciers were at their largest at the end of the Little Ice Age (around 1850) then started to retreat with the onset of a warming trend. While the decrease of glaciers since the end of the Little Ice Age is due to both natural and human-caused climate change, the retreat seen in recent decades can be increasingly attributed to anthropogenic causes.’

    ‘Can be.’ No explanation. No evidence. “Just trust us. We are the authorities.”

    ‘Increasingly.’ Whatever that means.

    ‘At the end of the Little Ice Age around 1850, there were about 80 glaciers in what would eventually become Glacier National Park. Based on aerial imagery from 2015 there were 26 named glaciers that met the size criteria of 0.1 km², nine fewer than in 1966.’

    So they admit the glaciers had been receding before ManMadeGlobalWarming ever started.

    The government of the USA has no integrity.

    From the article by NASA: “The findings have been interpreted that way by some, suggesting that the study results were evidence that global warming is slowing or stopping. However, the facts paint a different picture, as a quick review of the study’s key findings illustrates. To recap:

    The recent changes in Jakobshavn, located on Greenland’s west coast, are attributed to the 2016 cooling of an ocean current that carries water to the glacier’s ocean face, likely due to a shift in the North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO) that took place in 2015. The NAO is an oceanic climate pattern that causes northern Atlantic water temperatures to alternate between warm and cold every five to 20 years. The glacier’s dramatic slowdown coincided with the arrival of the cooler waters near Jakobshavn that summer.
    Water temperatures near the glacier are now colder than they’ve been since the mid-1980s. The colder water isn’t melting the ice at the front of and beneath the glacier as quickly as the warmer water did.
    Jakobshavn’s changes are temporary. When the NAO flips again, the glacier will most likely resume accelerating and thinning, as warm waters return to continue melting it from beneath.”
    In other words, NASA says, “A….a……a……well. a….a…..hum….a … So give me my ball! I’m going home!”
    I agree though. Yes, it does not mean that global warming is slowing or ending….There was never any long term global warming over the last 100 years.

    Great work. Tony.
    Sorry, these may have come from you. My 2 favorite quotes: 97.2% of statistics are made up on the spot. And almost all statistics agree with the ones handing out the grants.
