NASA Debunks Global Warming: Ice Sheets Growing


ice sheetsRecent NASA studies show the Anarctic ice sheet is gaining more mass than it is losing, reports.

In 2013, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change said the Antarctic ice sheet had lost large amounts of mass with little or no gain, but new NASA studies say the opposite.

A new analysis of satellite data shows a net gain of 112 billion tons of ice a year from 1992 to 2001, according to The gain slowed to 82 billion tons per year between 2003 and 2008.

Jay Zwally, who led the NASA study, said his study agrees with others that there’s been “ice discharge in the Antarctic Peninsula and the Thwaites and Pine Island region of West Antarctica. But in other areas, such as East Antarctica and interior West Antarctica, there’s been ice gain.

Zwally added that “Antarctica is not currently contributing to sea level rise, but is taking 0.23 millimeters per year away.”

But, he added that if sea levels are rising 0.27 millimeters a year worldwide and the water is not coming from Antarctic ice melt, it has to be coming from somewhere else that “is not accounted for.”




  1. Everyone, especially the politically correct crowd who genuflect at the alter of man-made global warming, completely overlooked the hilarious irony that occurred last winter (or perhaps the previous winter) when a group of observers and scientists traveled by ship to Antarctica to view the supposed melting of the ice sheet when they became stuck in the massive ice flows. An icebreaker ship came to its rescue, and it, too, got stuck in the ice. Maybe HaShem was sending a message to these idiots who believe that man has the power to alter the universe’s climate?

  2. “NASA Debunks Global Warming” That’s an inaccurate and misleading headline. NASA just presented the facts about the Antarctic ice sheet. It did NOT draw any conclusions about global warming – Matzav did.

  3. Its hard to believe that Al Gore and all those scientist are now all of sudden quiet. And #3 NASA never believed in global warming, maybe the occupant in the white house does.
