“When averaged over the whole WAIS [West Antarctic Ice Sheet] , SMB [surface mass balance] shows a significantly negative trend (-1.9± 2.2Gt yr-1decade-1, p<0.01) [loss of ice] during the 19th century, but a significantly positive trend (5.4± 2.9Gt decade-1, p<0.01) [gain in ice] in the 20th century."
"Global panic over the impending meltdown of Antarctica is totally unwarranted...A 2015 NASA study reported that the Antarctic ice sheet was actually gaining rather than losing ice in 2008, and that ice thickening was making sea levels fall by 0.23 mm per year."
Warmist Eric Holthaus: "A new study confirms that global warming has triggered an irreversible collapse of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet, which will alone raise global sea levels by 10 feet. It's still up to us to decide if that ice takes 500 years to melt, or 50. We are in a climate emergency."
Warmist Stefan Rahmstorf: "The West Antarctic Ice Sheet is melting and has probably passed the tipping point to its complete demise, causing a long-term sea-level rise of 3 meters. But is that our fault?"
Unlike Holthaus, the mainstream media published stories that merely exaggerated the paper’s findings from science into revelation.
