Well, there have been numerous studies of ice melt. All of them are in contradiction to one another. But, we do have a proxy for ice melt and it's rate. We like to call it "sea level". The rate of rise in sea level, even according to the data manipulators and data set conflating, is decreasing, not increasing. When you confine your reading to only the papers which conform to your beliefs, then you are exercising willful ignorance. Zwally et al put the ice melt on Greenland much lower. By most estimates, the sea level has been rising since the last ice age at about 2 mm/yr. Jason II reports a rate of rise of 1.16 mm/yr. Uhm.... that's not accelerating. Try again, Sparky.
