Gullible reporters and left leaning politicians have gleefully relied on the exaggerated climate model predictions in an attempt to lend credence to their claims of accelerating sea level rises. The climate models projected that human CO2 increases would cause a definitive ice sheet melt with rising sea levels. However two NASA scientists reported in the AAAS Science Journal and have found that data from the East Antarctica ice sheet showed that previous ice sheet loss estimates were significantly higher than reality.

Combine this study`s results with recent Greenland ice sheet research and it becomes very evident why the empirical evidence (satellites and tide gauges) does not conform to the wild predictions of climate models; nor does the real world science conform to the baseless exaggerated journalism spoon fed by the green climate activists. New research out of Greenland proves the stability of the ice sheet over the last two decades(see next post)
