I want you to think thru the following two paragraphs with me.
WASHINGTON (AP) – Antarctica is melting more than six times faster than it did in the 1980s, a new study shows.
Scientists used aerial photographs, satellite measurements and computer models to track how fast the southern-most continent has been melting since 1979 in 176 individual basins. They found the ice loss to be accelerating dramatically – a key indicator of human-caused climate change.
Assume for argument that they are right. Some questions come to mind.
First, there was global cooling (“The Coming Ice Age”) until 1979. It wasn’t until the late 1980s that there was a discussion of global warming.
Second, that last sentence.
They found the ice loss to be accelerating dramatically – a key indicator of human-caused climate change.
Even assume this to be the case. How does ice loss acceleration prove human-caused global warming? It does no such thing.
