More Settled Science: Wrong about Ice Melt in Greenland, Sea-Rise

such increases are increasingly likely before the end of this century. Finally, he totally confuses the measures that NASA reports with the annual rates reported in the PNAS paper. The link he provided discussed a dramatic seasonal drop in Greenland ice. If you look at the graphs in the link to the PNAS study you see the same dramatic seasonal drop. Ransom should stick to finance, oh wait, he is not too sharp there, either.

BTW, for those who think that the Telegraph accurately reported that ice loss was "insignificant" here is what the authors of the paper note:

"The Princeton researchers found that Greenland lost roughly 200 billion tons of ice each year during the seven-year period studied, which falls within the range reported by other studies. The amount of ice lost annually could stack up on all of Manhattan to nearly 12,000 feet, or more than eight times taller than the Empire State Building..."

New research published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences tends to now show that ice melt estimates previously calculated for Greenland have not significantly accelerated- as has been previously postulated- nor has the melt contributed in a meaningful way to the rise of sea levels.

Recently, much of the destruction on the east coast as a consequence of Super-Mega-Hurricane Sandy Gore was blamed on the rise in sea-levels, which have been blamed on…drum roll…global warming.

The newest revelation, amongst many in the last several years that have muffled the global warming chants of  “settled science, settled...
