Warmist: ‘The overwhelming scientific consensus is that humans hold the control knob for how fast Antarctica will melt’




Gizmodo, covered the news breathlessly, saying, “The Antarctic Ice Sheet Has Started to Collapse and Nothing Can Stop It.” That sort of framing is misleading and harmful.


or another example, take this short piece in the Guardian, which ran on Monday with the headline “Antarctic ice is melting so fast the whole continent may be at risk by 2100.” Taken in the context of steadily worsening climate news, a reasonable person might conclude that all the ice in Antarctica—enough to raise global sea levels 200 feet and paralyze human civilization—may now be vulnerable to melt by the time our grandchildren retire. This is absolutely not true.
