New study: Antarctic and Greenland ice sheet melt may be natural event, no consensus on cause

Ice sheets are the largest potential source of future sea level rise – and they also possess the largest uncertainty over their future behaviour From the University of Bristol Continuous satellite monitoring of ice sheets needed to better predict sea-level … Continue reading

New study using GRACE data shows global sea levels rising less than 7 inches per century

Finds sea levels have risen over the past 9 years [2002-2011] at a rate of only 1.7 mm/yr, equivalent to 6.7 inches per century, matching tide gauge data rates. The paper corroborates the NOAA 2012 Sea Level Budget which finds … Continue reading

Antarctic weight loss seems to be in the eye of the beholder

From Newcastle University New understanding of Antarctic’s weight-loss New data which more accurately measures the rate of ice-melt could help us better understand how Antarctica is changing in the light of global warming. The rate of global sea level change … Continue reading

‘Gravity is climate’? WTF?!

From the Helmholtz Association of German Research Centres  evidence that maybe, just maybe, climate has become a singularity unto its own, and everything now in the physical world is “climate”. Or…they’ve jumped the shark. The headline of this press release  … Continue reading

IPCC’s Pachauri’s “voodoo science” claim comes full circle

WUWT readers may recall that when the “Himalayan Glaciers will melt by 2035″ error was first revealed, IPCC chairman Rajenda Pachauri famously labeled claims of the mistake “voodoo science”and then had to retract that slur later. Now it appears there … Continue reading

Greenland ice not responding as predicted

From C3 Headlines and The Hockey Schtick word that the whole Greenland ice loss issue and Atlasgate just got more complex. As a whole Greenland is not responding the same, which suggests regional weather variability as a cause. From C3 … Continue reading

Why I’m not worried about Greenland’s icecap right now

There’s some blogospheric carping about his statement in the JPL press release below regarding Greenland’s ice sheets:“… their cumulative loss could raise sea level by 15 centimeters (5.9 inches) by 2050.” Well sure, it could be, but as this recent … Continue reading
