    Photo Watts Up With That? Antarctic is gaining billions of tons per year since last century
    Proof of
    the left’s agenda on Global warming as left-wing media giants the BBC claim “massive
    Ice loss spreading up Antarctic glaciers!” When actually a three week old NASA
    report claims the Antarctic has been gaining 112 to 82 billion tons of ice a
    year since 1992.
    They, the
    BBC, go on to say,  The scale and pace of
    change now taking place in West Antarctica is captured in a new, long-term
    satellite record.
    Scientists
    have combined nearly a quarter of a century of observations to show how the
    region’s great glaciers are losing height by up to 7 meters per year, more on
    this later.
    Their unlikely
    story comes just three weeks after NASA claimed the Antarctic ice sheet showed
    a net gain of 112 billion tons of ice a year from 1992 to 2001, slowing to 82
    billion tons of ice per year between 2003 and 2008.
    The new
    NASA study says that an increase in Antarctic snow accumulation that began
    10,000 years ago is currently adding enough ice to the continent to outweigh
    the increased losses from its thinning glaciers. The research challenges the
    conclusions of other studies, including the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate
    Change’s (IPCC) 2013 report, which says that Antarctica is overall losing land
    ice. According to the new analysis of satellite data, the Antarctic ice sheet
    showed a net gain of 112 billion tons of ice a year from 1992 to 2001. That net
    gain slowed to 82 billion tons of ice per year between 2003 and 2008. That is
    112 to 82 billion tons a year GAIN NOT LOSS.
    And in the
    same week Scott and Shackleton logbooks prove Antarctic sea ice is not
    shrinking 100 years after expeditions


    You can see the BBC report here

    The
    Telegraph reported this week that Antarctic sea ice has barely changed from
    where it was 100 years ago, scientists have discovered, after poring over the
    logbooks of great polar explorers such as Robert Falcon Scott and Ernest
    Shackleton. Experts were concerned that ice at the South Pole had declined
    significantly since the 1950s, which they feared was driven by man-made climate
    change. But new analysis suggests that conditions are now virtually identical
    to when the Terra Nova and Endurance sailed to the continent in the early
    1900s, indicating that declines are part of a natural cycle and not the result
    of global warming. It also explains why sea ice levels in the South Pole have
    begun to rise again in recent years, a trend which has left climate scientists
    scratching their heads.
