BREAKING UP: MILES OF ICE COLLAPSING INTO THE SEA
Advertisement
THE ACCELERATION is making some scientists fear that Antarctica’s ice sheet may have entered the early stages of an unstoppable disintegration.

Because the collapse of vulnerable parts of the ice sheet could raise the sea level dramatically, the continued existence of the world’s great coastal cities — Miami, New York, Shanghai and many more — is tied to Antarctica’s fate.

Four New York Times journalists joined a Columbia University team in Antarctica late last year to fly across the world’s largest chunk of floating ice in an American military cargo plane loaded with the latest scientific gear.
Quote:Even as the threat from global warming comes into sharper focus, these scientists understand that political leaders — and cities already feeling the effects of a rising sea — need clearer forecasts about the consequences of emissions. That urgent need for insight has led scientists from Columbia to spend the past two Antarctic summers flying over the Ross Ice Shelf, a floating chunk of ice larger than California.

The Ross shelf helps to slow the flow of land ice from Antarctica into the ocean. Compared with other parts of Antarctica, the shelf seems stable now, but computer forecasts suggest that it might be vulnerable to rapid collapse in the next few decades.

The project to map the structure and depth of the ice shelf in detail, funded by American taxpayers through the National Science Foundation, puts Columbia and its partner institutions on the front lines of one of the world’s most urgent scientific and political problems.

“Our goal is to understand how to predict what’s going to happen to the ice sheets,” said Robin E. Bell, the lead Columbia scientist in charge of the effort. “We really don’t know right now.”

Remote as Antarctica may seem, every person in the world who gets into a car, eats a steak or boards an airplane is contributing to the emissions that put the frozen continent at risk. If those emissions continue unchecked and the world is allowed to heat up enough, scientists have no doubt that large parts of Antarctica will melt into the sea.

But they do not know exactly what the trigger temperature might be, or whether the recent acceleration of the ice means that Earth has already reached it. The question confronting society, said Richard B. Alley, a climate scientist at Pennsylvania State University, is easier to ask than to answer:

“How hot is too hot?”

No way. Man can't affect the environment enough to do any damage. FAKENEWS





Shanghai isn't a real place. The govt faked that ^^ video

There is a chance we may make it to a true interglacial period.
Wouldn't be the first.

We need an infrastructure plan, now.

We are going to see mass migrations from coastal areas putting strains on resources in areas that have never had them. This will cause prices to rise, food/water to become scarce (see Colorado River), outbreaks of illness, and much more.

For those that don't believe in climate change, time to get on your knees and pray to what you believe in.

Antarctica Is Turning Green, as Climate Change Pushes It Back in Geologic Time


[Image: Close-up-of-the-hummocky-terrain_1024.jpg]

Quote:Researchers in Antarctica have discovered rapidly growing banks of mosses on the ice continent's northern peninsula, providing striking evidence of climate change in the coldest and most remote parts of the planet.

...


"Even these relatively remote ecosystems, that people might think are relatively untouched by human kind, are showing the effects of human induced climate change."

Less than 1 percent of present-day Antarctica features plant life. But in parts of the peninsula, Antarctic mosses grow on frozen ground that partly thaws in the summer - when only about the first foot of soil ever thaws.

The surface mosses build up a thin layer in the summer, then freeze over in winter. As layer builds on top of layer, older mosses subside below the frozen ground, where they are remarkably well preserved due to the temperatures.

The Antarctic peninsula has been a site of rapid warming, with more days a year where temperatures rise above freezing. The consequence, the study found, was a four- to five-fold increase in the amount of moss growth in the most recent part of the record.

Crops exposed to freezing temps here overnight, snow at higher elevations.

Some will have to be reseeded.

Do you have any freaking idea how much it costs to reseed a crop?

Idiots.

Take your global warming lies and stick them where the sun don't shine.

Hear that giant sucking sound?

It's called geoengineering your weather.

Tell them to stop!

Just a matter of time until someone tells you AGW causes cold weather.

so you are a thick headed idiot that hasn't got a clue ,eh?

why not just say so..

climate change is causing sub-polar temperatures in places that don't normally get them by wreaking havoc on the polar jet stream causing it fluctuate wildly

Climate Disruption is a bumpy road towards ultimate overall heating of the atmosphere and oceans. Some areas will experience extreme cold while others will experience extreme heat and drought. In this transitional period, all bets are off. Extreme weather will occur on both sides of the scale, with bigger hurricanes, tornadoes and thunderstorms, just depends where you are at the time.

Not just me, i could post quote like this every minute till i die and still not run out.

They are geoengineering the weather, Period!

"I live in xxxxxxx Canada, and the past two springs are much cooler than I can remember, I've seen and filmed these Black chemtrails, and it's been picked up 4 fold, they are laying down grid patterns, like I've seen into the States, this is NOT NORMAL weather for us......they are forecasting snow later this week !! I've lived here my whole life, and don't remember this kind of weather, they ARE changing our weather......"

Only idiots and shills believe in this global warming crap.

What is causing problems is the insanely arrogant geo-engineering that's going on.
