July 24th, 2022, I saw the yahoo”NEWS” report and knew immediately it was lies, fraud, massive, if not total, fabrication.
As usual, I ask for your forgiveness as I have not put much effort into editing this article. I have many battles to fight, including making a living.
So, I have not read it but will and will not be surprised, when I do read it, while I write this article. We will critique it together.
The headline reads, “Greenland hit with ‘unusually extensive’ melting of ice sheet, boosting sea levels scientists say.”
Sure. What scientists? Who was there? I am already laughing.
A photograph from an aircraft is not science.
I was suspended from facebook over a month ago for exposing a series of gobbledegoop science articles written by NOAA. Okay, maybe I presume they were written by NOAA. NOAA published them on their site.
I will get back to that NOAA article after this.
The first thing one should notice is that “unusually extensive” is not quoted, rather in between apostrophes.
So, it is not quoted, not stated.
The “report” begins with conditional, fraudulent statements.
Who is Saleen Martin?
Without reading a single line of the article yet, we know he or she will be propagating misinformation. I know it because I have critiqued numerous yahoo”NEWS” articles and found every single one of them to be litanies of lies and fabrications.
I know it, you will need to determine that as we go.
The first sentence reads, “It’s getting hotter in Greenland…” It is summer. We should hope it is getting hotter in Greenland.
Greenland is still white, not green, like it was hundreds of years ago when it was warmer.
The full sentence reads, It’s getting hotter in Greenland and last weekend temperatures rose enough to cause 18 billion tons of the country’s ice sheet to melt over three days.”
Who measured that? How was it measured and how much was lost in previous years over same periods or similar periods?
You see, measuring and comparing would be science.
Let us see together if USA Today writers give us science or not.
Before, I read any further, however, how much is 18 billion tons of ice? What is the volume and how did the measurement take place?
How much ice melts in a summer?
How does “tons” equate to a different measurement, elevation of water in inches, for example? Will saleen explain this? That would be scientific.
In one year could it be possible that a trillion tons of ice melts? 18 billion tons, then, would be 0.18 percent, hardly a three day massive amount, but I speculate. Let us see if the “writer” puts 18 billion tons into perspective for us. That would be science, comparison, measuring change.
What is the volume of 18 billion tons of ice? Why is that not reported?
You see, I have not even read beyond the headline and first sentence/paragraph, and already I am searching for aspects of scientific methodology. Are you?
Water is more dense than ice.
Water weighs 62.3 pounds per cubic foot.
Ice weighs 57.2 pounds per cubic foot.
How much of that ice, that does not appear anywhere, is actually snow? Does it matter? Snow weighs in between 3.12 pounds per cubic foot to heavy wet snow at 12.5 pounds per cubic foot. Did any of these “scientists” or “writers” measure, or even think about that variable?
I wonder if “writer” saleen knows any of this.
One ton of ice would be 2,000 pounds, or 34.97 cubic feet.
Imagine a ditch 34.97 feet long, one foot wide and one foot high. That is the volume of one ton of ice.
Multiply that by 18 billion.
18 billion tons of ice is equivalent to 36 trillion pounds.
36 trillion pounds divided by 57.2 (pounds per cubic feet) gives us cubic feet. The result is 629.37 billion cubic feet of ice. One foot deep, or 629.37 cubic feet divided by one foot results in 629.37 billion square feet.
There are 27,878,400 square feet per square mile.
Converted to square miles, or 629,370,000,000 square feet divided by 27,878,400 gives us 22,575.54 square miles.
Square miles of Greenland 2,166,086.
So one foot deep, 2,166,086 divided by 22,575,000 square miles, the three day melt of one foot deep ice equals .0104, or one percent.
In three days, 1% of the total area of greenland, one foot deep melted. Is this a lot? No. This does not happen in warmer climates.
Is it very little in comparison? You might ask, in comparison to what? Wouldn’t that be something the “scientists” and “writers” provide to show that there is more melt than usual? Sure, but they do not think in terms of science or anything related to science, obviously.
Nobody knows. I did a simple calculation. I now know something more regarding this so-called ice melt than all who have “contributed” to this article. I have added more reality to this article than all at USA Today and every so-called scientist that did not contribute a single measurement, or methodology of measuring.
How much ice was added to Antarctica and all southern climes over the same period? Was it ice or snow? How much of that pretentious, unsubstantiated amount of 18 billion tons, was actually snow?
The earth’s total ocean area is 140 million square miles.
If it was all ice that melted, then going back to our calculation, we have 22,575 square miles of water one foot deep spread over a total 140,000,000 miles of ocean area (the volume of water from ice would actually be less than 22,575 square miles). This equals 0.00016125 foot deep covering the oceans.
Converted to inches we have 0.001935 inches spread over the whole surface area of the oceans of the world. This is less than 1/3 of a 1/6th of an inch: about 1/50 of an inch. NOTHING!
Again, the gobbledegoop scientists will argue that it is a lot when you consider it happens all through the summer, but it does not happen at that rate. Isn’t that the crux of the article, that due to unusual melt more than usual volumes of ice have melted. But the goons state none of that because they are not scientific minded.
They toss out and ignore variables that do not support their empty claims.
They really have nothing of nothing and admit it in their silly claims and fear-mongering.
Are you afraid of that sudden rise in ocean levels of 1/3 of a 1/16 of an inch. Wow, like Al Gore, I can see the fish flopping in the streets of Florida cities, like it happened 15 years ago. Wait! Nothing of the sort happened.
And of course referring to another “study” the gobbledegoop scientists made, regarding one Florida Island (see my articles in CLIMATE CHANGE/GLOBAL WARMING), in which the sea level around that island in the chain experienced rising water levels while all others did not. Oops, they forgot that reality.
Drastic, unusual, they claim, the ocean rose, 1/3 of a 1/16 of an inch in three days. WOW!
But, did it? If it is so hot then that rise in ocean water level was surely swallowed up by increased vaporization. OMG, the goons forgot about that too. And where did that vaporization drift? Did it eventually, following jet streams and natural air flow over the earth, find its way to Antarctica, where it was dropped as snow?
Do you see how narrow-minded and un-scientific these fabrications are, and how dishonest and full of hate the “scientists” and “writers” must be to lie so egregiously to YOU?
And due to freezing in southern climes the oceans level dropped a full 1/16th of an inch. No? Who knows” The goons of yahoo”NEWS”, USA Today and NOAA, and all the fake scientists certainly do not know. They do not know enough to even think about significant variables.
And I have only read the headline and first paragraph/sentence.
How many days, or how many three day time frames does the very very short summer in Greenland produce, 20, maybe?
Okay, so now I read the rest of the article, and try not to laugh at the childish, sub-intelligent fabrications the science-retards try to foist on the ignorant masses. Do these “people” get paid to be such rat-brained liars?
The article is totally void of variables or anything science-ish, to be considered science. This sub-intelligent report fools you?
So, three days of melting in greenland, according to…nothing… produces, at most (excluding the “snow variable”, and other variables) less than 1/50th of an inch increase in ocean levels. That’s it.
I skimmed the rest of the article. I saw a few names and researched them. The “writer” refers to “scientists” but no science.
The profiles of so-called climate scientists is void of reality. The “lists” of accomplishments read like a dating site profile….and Ted Scambos likes long walks on the beach and fluffy kittens.
The unusually extensive fabrications, fake accomplishments and lack of references to experiments and study data, exposes the fraud of all climate changeling global hoaxing.
Read and research for yourself.
Start with two things: 1) do not waste your time finding a definition of scientific methodology. Study it, learn it and apply it. 2) pick a topic and add “Masters Thesis” to it, and do an online search to find a real study or experiment for comparison, you know, science.
Do not remain ignorant. Get off your ass and learn reality.
You actually already apply the scientific methodology in your life, but then you let the gobbledegoop scientists of nothing, convince you that fairy tales do come true, as long as they follow the political narratives that keep you ignorant.
Have you ever eaten something and hated the taste, and then some time later avoided that food? Cause-and-effect, science at work. Maybe you can think back and remember how well you feel after eating that broccoli. Now you have an effect added to one variable, taste), and you make a decision based on one variable and the ffect. You may deduce that you do not like the taste of broccoli but because of the healthy return it seemed to provide, you decide to change and eat broccoli. That is study of change and adaptation: science.
Read and learn, and be free.
