Post Another Inconvenient Truth? New NASA Study Finds Antarctica Is GAINING Ice

Editorís Note: But remember, Bill Gates and Al Gore want you to dutifully pay your carbon taxesÖ

Well this is awkward. Just a month after former Aussie PM Tony Abbott openly questioned global warming data (and was Ďreplacedí), a new NASA study finds another inconvenient truth Ė Antarctica has been adding more ice than itís been losing, challenging other research, including that of the UNís Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, that concludes that Earthís southern continent is losing land ice overall.

In a paper published in the Journal of Glaciology on Friday, researchers from NASAís Goddard Space Flight Center, the University of Maryland in College Park, and the engineering firm Sigma Space Corporation offer a new analysis of satellite data that show a net gain of 112 billion tons of ice a year from 1992 to 2001 in the Antarctic ice sheet.

That gain slowed to 82 billion tons of ice per year between 2003 and 2008.

Climate scientists caution that these findings donít mean itís time to start celebrating the end of global warming. More than anything, the paper shows how difficult it is to measure ice height in Antarctica and that better tools are needed.

For now, the study authors say, these findings challenge current explanations for sea level rise, much of which is attributed to melting ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica.

Perhaps it is time to burn just a little more fossil fuel? And maybe VW was doing a global good with its defeat device?
