Comments on: Antarctica’s wandering ice shelf http://blogs.reuters.com/environment/2009/11/18/antarcticas-wandering-ice-shelf/ Global environmental challenges Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:14:55 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Robert http://blogs.reuters.com/environment/2009/11/18/antarcticas-wandering-ice-shelf/comment-page-1/#comment-343492 Wed, 02 Dec 2009 15:45:47 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/environment/?p=14583#comment-343492 Russ and Kyle,Firstly, if you take 1998 as your starting point it does appear that there has not been warming over the last 10 years. But as you should know that would be cherry picking data and 1998 was also known as the time when the world’s largest el nino occurred which is why it was the warmest ever recorded. In terms of the overall trend it is still on the order of 0.19 C per decade which is consistent with predictions. In fact if you checked out some actual scientific literature instead of internet blogs you might know that. Secondly for Russ, there is no distinct evidence of falsified data. The adding in the real temperatures onto the 1960’s dataset in order to “hide the decline” is simply putting on actual temperature data in place of data which cannot be used. The reason it couldn’t be used was because after 1960 that particular tree ring set diverged from recorded temperatures so the original author advised against using post-1960 tree ring data…. that would also be something you would know if you had any clue about things before you mouthed off. So sick of people who are so quick to jump on bandwagons without actually doing the research themselves. Nowmatter what I say you are going to think you’re right… that’s the difference between actual degrees in climate science and degrees from the University of Google.

That isn’t a contention that climate change is only caused by people.

Perhaps you could report on that. It doesn’t seem to be getting a lot of press. You could be breaking big news. Of course, you might have an agenda too. It would not be very professional to avoid reporting on facts, but then again they were not professional.

Some even say that the Earth may be getting cooler. I have a funny feeling that ice bergs have alway broke off and drifted out to see. In fact one sunk a ship in 1912. Climatr Change? Fact is the climate is always changing. Here in the midwest were going into winter. Climate change.

It’s sadly ironic that they’re often the result of breakage due to climate change.
