Once again, the progressive wing of the Democrat Party is left with egg all over its face.
Failed presidential candidate and former Vice President Al Gore may just be the hardest hit, although he’s earned millions over the decades pushing the “global warming” lie to the uninformed.
It is now being reported that the world’s largest glacier is now getting bigger.
To be fair, it was shrinking for a time. And yet, that doesn’t matter.
Because it is now rapidly expanding.
Here’s the scoop, per Daily Wire:
In a blow delivered to global warming purveyors, a new study discovered that a massive Greenland glacier that had been shrinking rapidly is expanding again.
NBC News reports that a new study published in Nature Geoscience examined the Jakobshavn glacier, in central west Greenland, the ice sheet’s fastest glacier and largest by volume discharge, and found that as opposed to the situation in 2012, when the glacier was shrinking 1.8 miles every year while thinning roughly 130 feet, over the last two years the process has been reversed.
How about them apples?
Might the mainstream media and Congressional Dems care to talk about this subject?
Highly doubtful. In fact, the previous sentence may be entirely rhetorical, unfortunately.
The abstract for the study notes that the glacier “has been the single largest source of mass loss from the Greenland Ice Sheet over the last 20 years. During that time, it has been retreating, accelerating and thinning.” It links the growth and thickening of the glacier over the last two years to “to concurrent cooling of ocean waters in Disko Bay that spill over into Ilulissat Icefjord,” adding, “Ocean temperatures in the bay’s upper 250 m have cooled to levels not seen since the mid 1980s.”
The scientists note that their information was gleaned from two NASA data sets: the radar altimetry of the Oceans Melting Greenland mission and the laser altimetry of Operation Icebridge. The study states, “Between 2016 and 2017, we observe ice thickening of 20 to 30 m in the vicinity of the front … Repeat Glacier and Ice Surface Topography Interferometer (GLISTIN) measurements in 2018 show that the thickening continued at a similar rate near the front, but has now extended as far as 80km upstream and has spread laterally.”
Have you ever thought about dimming the sun? Seems like a great idea, huh?
According to CNN, it actually is!
Harvard and Yale scientists are proposing that we tackle climate change by dimming the sun.
It sounds crazy, but according to their research, it could actually cut the rate of global warming in half: https://t.co/Ty8cCK3J5j

The study specifically says, "We make no judgment about the desirability…." It's an examination of the costs and technical feasibility, not a proposal. https://t.co/e9WATiNt20

Nowhere in the study do they weigh in on what dimming the sun would do to agriculture and aquatic life (since ocean plants are of critical importance and a less bright sun would impact the depths at which plant life could grow).
The potential drawbacks should be in the article. https://t.co/MSyEkV0qBu

So the sun causes climate change? https://t.co/8Ln8XloOOB

Whenever I see a story that invokes Ivy League scientists finding a solution to anything, I brace myself for the worst idea ever. Once again, they didn't disappoint. https://t.co/jPP1ujXNav

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) needs everyone to know that “people are going to die” if something isn’t done about climate change.
From The Hill:
Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) called on the U.S. to act “urgent[ly]” after a report from the federal government found that climate change is expected to have an enormous impact on the country in the near future.
People are going to die if we don’t start addressing climate change ASAP.
It’s not enough to think it’s “important.” We must make it urgent.
That’s why we need a Select Committee on a Green New Deal, & why fossil fuel-funded officials shouldn’t be writing climate change policy. https://t.co/bn6NloGlaY

Maybe Alexandria didn’t get the message that large outfits often falsify their data to make it seem as if things are worse than they are?
It’s going to be a long two years covering this gaffe-prone individual.
