Skip to comments.Antarctic Ice Shelf Collapse Is Old News
Posted on 04/18/2009 7:23:59 AM PDT by Stevenc131
The collapse of the Wilkins Ice Shelf in Antarctica has been big news this Spring. It was big news last Spring too. In fact the headlines were almost exactly the same, and the photos have been recycled from last year. The linked story from Watts Up With That is worth reading because it clearly reveals the amount of deception that went into this much hyped story.
The same scientest from the National Snow & Ice Data Center is quoted in 2009, 2008 and as far back as 1999 talking about how the Wilkins Ice Shelf is due to disappear. The breakup appears to be a regular event, and the story has photos going back to 1994 showing the shelf breaking, and then refreezing.
Current news, 2 feet of snow in Denver!
Did any polar bears or penguins die?
Yep, and the sun is going to come again tomorrow so i am putting on my henny penny costume and run around claiming the sky is falling...
Very good article.
Along with this information one *absolutely needs* the following — if one is going to dispute “Anthropogenic Global Warming” (AGW).
Its one thing to gripe and complain about these things and disagree with it, but its quite *another* to convince your friends and neighbors and relatives and coworkers...
THEREFORE..., its also absolutely necessary for people to know the information in the following documentary. If there were simply *one* video that you could see and/or show people you know... this would be the *one*...
The following is an *excellent* video documentary on the so-called Global Warming I would recommend it to all FReepers. Its a very well-made documentary.

[this is a high-quality copy, of about a gigabyte in size...]
Its worth seeing and having for relatives, friends, neighbors and coworkers to see.
Also, see it online here...
[this one is considerably lower quality, is a flash video and viewable online, of course...]
Buy it here...
[this one would be the very highest quality version, on a DVD disk, of several gigabytes in size...]
Revealed: Antarctic ice growing, not shrinking
ICE is expanding in much of Antarctica, contrary to the widespread public belief that global warming is melting the continental ice cap.
The results of ice-core drilling and sea ice monitoring indicate there is no large-scale melting of ice over most of Antarctica, although experts are concerned at ice losses on the continent’s western coast.
Antarctica has 90 per cent of the Earth’s ice and 80 per cent of its fresh water. Extensive melting of Antarctic ice sheets would be required to raise sea levels substantially, and ice is melting in parts of west Antarctica. The destabilisation of the Wilkins ice shelf generated international headlines this month.
However, the picture is very different in east Antarctica, which includes the territory claimed by Australia.
East Antarctica is four times the size of west Antarctica and parts of it are cooling. The Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research report prepared for last week’s meeting of Antarctic Treaty nations in Washington noted the South Pole had shown “significant cooling in recent decades”.
Australian Antarctic Division glaciology program head Ian Allison said sea ice losses in west Antarctica over the past 30 years had been more than offset by increases in the Ross Sea region, just one sector of east Antarctica.
“Sea ice conditions have remained stable in Antarctica generally,” Dr Allison said.
are you insinuating that this whole global warming thing is a hoax?!?!?
