(Natural News) If you listen to the global warming fanatics, one of the things they cannot stop talking about is the alleged melting of the Antarctic ice shelf, which they claim is occurring because of cow flatulence and people eating meat. The truth, however, is that the Antarctic ice shelf is growing overall, not shrinking.
Climate change alarmist Greta Thunberg, for example, tweeted that the Antarctic ice shelf, which is “nearly the size of Los Angeles collapsed as temperatures soared to 40 above normal” during a recent heat wave. Thunberg linked to a fake news article from CNN that backs her claim.
Former Mediaite senior columnist and talk radio host John Ziegler quickly put Thunberg and CNN in their place by pointing out that Antarctica just had its coldest winter on record, which was ignored by most major media outlets in favor of the alarmism narrative.
“Climate alarm is based on ambulance-chasing commonplace events, making up fake statistics about them, and never permitting an honest scientist to weigh in on the discussion,” added Tony Heller of Real Climate Science to the conversation.
Antarctica has been cooling and growing more ice for the past 40 years
In a lengthier piece about the subject, Heller wrote that all of the freaking out about the breaking off of the ice shelf is just nonsense meant to scare the uninformed and easily mind-controlled who believe everything the “experts” tell them.
It turns out that eight years ago, the shelf cracked as well, stranding expedition ships amid large blocks of floating ice. There are times when temperatures increase, resulting in breakage, followed by times when temperatures decrease and cause them to reform.
This is how the climate works, by the way: It is an ebb and flow of temperature fluctuations throughout time that cause ice to melt and refreeze, and is nothing of concern.
Listening to the likes of CNN, however, one is led to believe that this most recent ice breakage is a catastrophe that requires the elimination of all fossil fuels and the replacement of all real meat with synthetic alternatives like Beyond Meat, in which billionaire eugenicist Bill Gates holds a large stake.
Heller also challenged the notion that Antarctica’s recent temperature increase can even accurately be described as a heat wave since the temperature increase that occurred there in 2014 was roughly the same.
“So according to climate experts, history began after the year 2014 and the melting point of ice is now -12 C. Icebergs break off East Antarctica regularly,” he wrote.
Another false claim of the climate alarmists is that sea levels will rise because of the ice breakage, which defies basic, high school-level science in every way.
Dr. Brian Galton-Fenzi, a glaciologist, responded to this claim with the following:
“The calving will not directly affect sea level because the ice shelf was already floating, much like an ice cube in a glass of water.”
It really is as simple as that, but apparently the experts at CNN forgot what they learned in high school science class (or perhaps they flunked out?).
In essence, this alleged “climate disaster” in the making is really just climate mitigation, a normal process that is occurring not because of some heat wave, but because of record snowfall.
In actuality, Antarctica has been undergoing 40 years of cooling and ice expansion, despite what the corporate-controlled media and the climate alarmists are claiming.
“Official data reveals that East Antarctica, which covers two thirds of the South Pole, has cooled 2.8C over the past 4 decades, with West Antarctica cooling 1.6C,” reported Climate Depot about this phenomenon.
“It stands that only a tiny slither of Antarctica (the Antarctic Peninsula) has seen any warming – statistically insignificant warming, at that – but there are no prizes for guessing which region the MSM (mainstream media) focuses on.”
