Antarctic ice shelves not melting at all, new field data show

•, Lewis Page

Twenty-year-old models which have suggested serious ice loss in the eastern Antarctic have been compared with reality for the first time – and found to be wrong, so much so that it now appears that no ice is being lost at all.

“Previous ocean models … have predicted temperatures and melt rates that are too high, suggesting a significant mass loss in this region that is actually not taking place,” says Tore Hattermann of the Norwegian Polar Institute, member of a team which has obtained two years’ worth of direct measurements below the massive Fimbul Ice Shelf in eastern Antarctica – the first ever to be taken.

Wonderful... another lie from asslicking corporate stooges. Notice how the story changes from the lie ice shelves not melting to the not quite as innacurage EASTERN ice shelve not melting. And this is one report that hahas yet to be validated, and, even if true, probably has zero relevance to climate change
