Lorne Gunter: ‘Climate change scare is ideological, not scientific’
Since the 1970s, geologists have known the deterioration of the Western Antarctic ice shelf is due mainly to physics, not carbon emissions. As early as 1977, Glaciologist Richard Cameron was writing “We’re seeing the west ice sheet on its way out. It has nothing to do with climate, just the dynamics of unstable ice.” It’s a huge ice block extending hundreds of kilometres over water rather than land. At some point, some or all of it is going to “calve” into the sea.
