Skip to comments.NASA: Polar ice sheets are melting
Posted on 12/06/2012 9:16:39 AM PST by edcoil
Ice sheets at both of Earth's poles are melting rapidly, and the rate of loss has increased since the 1990s, a new NASA-sponsored study shows.
The study, which combines extensive data from aircraft and satellites, is believed to be the most precise assessment of its kind.

And how is this relevant to Primary Mission “Muslim outreach” ?
NASA no longer does space exploration. Heck, they don’t even have launch capability.
So, they focus on proving global warming and muslim outreach.
Same as what Romney would have had them do. /SARCASM
haven’t heard much about the “hole in the Ozone layer” lately. Guess it’s closed up.
chicken little, henny penny, goosey loosey, cocky lockey and ducky daddle all concur.
I’m not believing this unless they have a hockey stick graph PROVING it!
Probably caused by my uncle’s big ass Cadillac...
Climate changes. That’s hardly scientifically controversial. Show me some evidence that the King Kanuts at the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change have the power to stop it.
“Hey!...We are too, relevant!...See, we’ll produce reports to support your BS agenda!...See!...Wait!.....”
NASA as prostitute....
It'll probably be closed until the patent on refrigerant R134a expires.
It took 40 million years to build up the antarctic ice cap and those G.D. Bitter Clingers are melting it down in one generation!
If this keeps up, in a few decades we might return to the climate conditions of the Medieval Warm Period.
I’m guessing that the Antarctic ice-sheet is currently melting faster than the arctic ice-sheet.
Home energy should be shut off at 11:00pm in Blue States to save the planet.
Shouldn’t they be looking the other way?
You lost your connection to science around the time that you started Muslim outreach.
Go back to your rooms, close the door, and STFU.
Am I the only one who thinks it would be GREAT if the polar ice really was melting?
I don’t believe any of the AGW BS, but I’m pretty sure the Sahara was once a lush jungle. Seems to me, more water in the atmosphere might be a good thing.
Obama is doing his part to combat Global Warming by keeping the victims of Hurricane Sandy living in homes with no heat and no electric.
So? Who cares? This earth is always changing! IDIOTS!
You know, the ice in my manhattan last night also melted!
Second verse same as the first.
More BS from government parasites trying to justify their waste of tax dollars.
Cleaning the roast beef sandwich from my monitor. lol
Good. It will open up fishing opportunities in the area. If we’re lucky, enough will melt to kill a bunch of dangerous, predatory polar bears.
Watching the History Channel’s “History of Mankind” the other evening they had a segment on the Mongol empire under Genghis Khan. What caused the Mongols to leave their homeland and seek to conquer other lands?
A period of global warming turned lush and green Mongolia into a barren desert in the 12th century.
Funny, there was mention of the sun causing this warming period but no mention of it being a man-caused event as we must suffer through today.
Garbage In = Stopped up pot.
How telling is that little snippet?
We just know it's there, but it's just "elusive".
I wonder if they have Muslim-transgendered toilet/prayer rooms on the space station. My guess is this is why they’ve had to scale back the space program so much in recent years.
Hmmm...that’s funny. NASA’s own website shows the antarctic ice sheet has been near or ABOVE long-term means for several years now.
NASA disagrees with itself: http://nsidc.org/research/projects.html
A very good SCIENTIFIC rebuttal here:
‘Climate change’ ain’t just a state of mind or political reality thingy I reckun .. melt happens.
How many ice ages have come and gone long before al gore ever set foot in his research lab?
Did ya know the antarctic sheets are melting Right NOW! And last summer the arctic sheets were melting too! Omg run for the hills cause the sea is rising!!!!!
Now that Zero has won reelection, they are going to be pushing Cap and Tax really hard, both at the administrative level (EPA), executive order, and legislatively (Will likely be inserted into the “Fiscal Cliff” legislation or Debt ceiling legislation)
Who would believe anything from a group infested wth serial liars like James Hansen ?
Is this NASA’s new mission???
If this latest pile of bunk is claimed to be the most precise are they then comparing this to past imprecse data?
Well, it could be a solution to our problem of both coasts being saturated with liberals. I’m okay with that...;)
A report by whom... James Hansen?
