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

Of course 13,000 years ago New York City was buried under 5000 feet of ice and sea level was 390 feet lower than today. I figured this out a couple of years ago when I became the first, and to date only, American to read the Wikipedia page on Greenland. Losing 50 cubic miles of ice a year sounds like a lot until you realize that the Greenland Ice Sheet is 680,000 cubic miles. What's more interesting is that the ice sheet didn't even exist until 500,000 years ago - before that it was a forest - and has almost totally melted 4 times since.

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...
