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.
