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

Why can't scientists devote their time to positive research or experimentation ? Work on a 100 mph automobile, invent insulation or new materials to keep our homes warm in winter, cool in summer. Stop this bull-hockey of scaring us to death ! There are too many pseudo-scientists who have not a clue how to improve, improvise, or invent. We have too many medicine men,alchemists, and witch doctors, not scientists (most probably working for some government agency).

They go where the money is. Unfortunately, the vast majority of the money is not available for legitimate research. Governments want research that will support whatever politicians need to "scientifically prove" whatever legislation they are trying to get passed.

stephen,

because it doesn't pay?

in fact, just Questioning Authority can get you ripped apart...

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...
