Antarctic Ice is Melting. There’s a big hole in the Thwaites glacier, and it’s melting rapidly. It’s going to flood the world and kill us all. It’s the result of global warming. Oh well, at least we won’t have to worry about climate change anymore.
Well…actually, no. It is melting but it isn’t going to raise sea levels one millimeter. It’s not melting because of global warming. It’s melting because it’s sitting on top of a volcano. The portion of the glacier that is melting is below sea level. It’s in a Death-Valley like region of the Continent of Antarctica.
Just as an ice cube placed in a glass of water doesn’t raise the level of water in the glass as it melts, the melting of the big hole in the Thwaites glacier of Antartica won’t raise or lower sea levels. Its mass is already accounted for in the current sea level.
There are at least 140 volcanoes below the ice in Antartica. From time to time the magma comes close enough to earth’s crust to send heat up through the ice, causing the ice to melt. The hole in the ice is about the size of Manhattan. The Thwaites glacier is much larger, about the size of Florida. The big hole is only .01 percent of the mass of the glacier.
The call to blame climate change for almost everything on earth is just the opposite of true science, which is the observation of natural phenomenon, then conseiving a hypothesis to explain it, followed by testing the hypothesis to see if it’s true. Climate change “science” doesn’t work that way. Instead, the Kool-Aid drinkers of climate change start with a conclusion and then use fake data to support it.
The whole thing is a sham and a hoax.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change recently said this: “The climate system is a coupled non-linear chaotic system, and therefore the long-term prediction of future climate states is not possible.”
So forget about whatever Al Gore or Ocasio-TacoRosada says about having only 12 years to fix climate change. We don’t cause it, we can’t stop it, and we can’t predict it.
Same goes for the melting and freezing of ice in Antarctica.
