Geologist Dr. Sebastian Lüning recently sent a letter to daily Potsdamer Neueste Nachrichten (PNN), which earlier had reported on dramatic “ice loss” in Antarctica and resulting dangerous sea level rise – the typical bogus climate alarm story we’ve become accustomed to hearing from the Truth Media.
Sadly, the PNN presented only the doom and gloom perspective of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK), and so Lüning sent a letter to set the record straight. In his letter he presented by 5 very recent papers that “clearly contradict such a dramatic ice melting at the South Pole.”
In the first paper Lüning cites, NASA states that ice mass gains at Antarctica were greater than the losses.
The second paper states that scientists concluded that sea level rise from the modeled melting of Antarctic ice sheets over the next 200 years will in fact be slower than expected. Yes, the models were over the top again.
The third paper Lüning presents shows that melting of the “West Antarctic Ice Sheet could be slowed by two big factors that are largely overlooked in current computer models“. Yes, more model flaws.
The fourth paper, appearing in the American Geophysical Union, states that “annual snow accumulation on West Antarctica’s coastal ice sheet increased dramatically during the 20th century“.
And the fifth paper examined here writes that the Antarctic ice sheet has stayed frozen over the past 14 millions years, thus suggesting that “the surrounding region, the East Antarctic Ice Sheet, or EAIS, has likewise remained intact“, thus lending “new support for the idea that the EAIS did not experience significant melting even during the Pliocene, a period from 3 to 5 million years ago, when carbon dioxide concentrations rivaled what they are today“.
Lüning writes to the PNN that he is getting the impression that “foremost dramatizing climate studies are finding their way” to their newspaper and that he would be happy if they visited his Die kalte Sonne site.

To get into mainstream media, you have to be dramatic. Truth is only a secondary consideration, at best. We have to come up with some dramatic consequences (as dramatic as we can imagine) of the global warming scam. Rich getting richer and poor poorer is good, but we need something more catastrophic if not strictly true.
“Yes, the Ice Is Melting, But Not Because of Us” – Fred Singer
An article in the NYSlimes, back when it wasn’t quite as slimy as it is now, and they would allow a dissenting opinion.
“back when it wasn’t quite as slimy as it is now”
when would that have been, before 1922?
Yes, I know about that. I didn’t mean that it wasn’t always slimy, just that it’s worse now overall, that being true of all of them and becoming more so.
One case in point (I know it has nothing to do with warming. It’s just one hopefully clear illustration of how much MORE censored the “news” has become.) – how likely do you think it would be for a report like this to be shown on any of the modern equivalents of McNeil/Lehrer?
Pierre, thanks for the recap of the Lüning article. I hope they will get an answer shortly on this gloom and doom story.
You may want to edit your links to the papers, only the 3rd one is valid.
Thanks. You’re right. Links have now been repaired and work on my end.

More from Fred Singer, this specifically about the melting in Antarctica.
It should start at 0:59:00. Watch from there to about 1:01:30.
It is melting @ ~7″ per century, has been for millenia, and will continue to melt no matter what cargo-cult nonsense we humans employ to try to stop it.
1. – Don’t know what happened to that link. Trying again…
“More from Fred Singer, this specifically about the melting in Antarctica.”
2. – The 7″ per century is the sea level rise, about which we can also do nothing to change.
