So the News Tribune publishes a climate change double whammy by a single journalist. The first article exams the faulty thinking of the climate realists (aka deniers).
On the opposite page, the reporter provides a case in point about the Greenland Ice Sheet (and melt) completely out of context.
This article worries about the loss of 9 trillion tons of ice from Greenland over the past century and the impact on sea level rise.
By losing 9 trillion tons, or about 5 meters of thickness of the Greenland Ice Sheet, means that Greenland has lost about 0.3 percent of its total ice mass as the ice sheet, on average, is still about 1,500 meters thick.
Never miss a local story.
The Greenland Ice Sheet’s remaining ice volume is about 2.6 million metric kilometers, so the loss of 8,000 metric kilometers over the past century is less than a rounding error. If one cannot conduct basic journalism then at least be honest that one is no longer reporting the news but helping to shape public opinion through misinformation.
Climate Change realists (deniers) have simply taken the time to look at the science and quickly realized that the data do not support the conclusions.
