NASA has made a claim that might shake the liberal environmental establishment to its very core—that there might not be any evidence of global warming in Antarctica.
In a recent study, NASA proved that not only is Antarctica not losing ice—but it’s actually gaining ice.
“For east Antarctica and the interior of West Antarctica–there, we see an ice gain that exceeds the losses in the other areas,” explained Jay Zwally, the report’s author, in a NASA press release. Meaning ice is forming much faster than its melting.
Massive ice melt is what doomsday environmentalists cite as the biggest disaster facing the world because of global warming, largely because the ocean rising several feet could wipe out a large number of coastal towns.
But, coupled with evidence that the earth abruptly stopped warming in the mid-1990s, NASA’s new study about how ice fields in Antarctica are growing is another nail in the coffin of the fear mongering global warming establishment.
However, the facts might not be enough for “party of science” Democrats, who have long claimed the “debate is over” on global warming, and refuse to accept any new studies that might prove the opposite.
In 2015 alone, Barack Obama’s budget has pledged billions to help offset the affects of global warming. He’s also issued executive orders to gut coal production and coal power—which many suspect led to a surprise Republican gubernatorial victory last week in Kentucky, the heart of coal country.
But the day NASA released their study, Obama took to his Facebook page to talk about climate change—and didn’t mention anything about the new findings.
In the video he posted to Facebook, Obama walks on a glacier and says, “Not only do I want future presidents to be able to take walks like this, I want to make sure that the American people are able to enjoy the incredible national parks, incredible beauty, the mountains, the oceans, that have been one of the greatest gifts we’ve ever received.”
Luckily, if NASA’s study is right, it looks like we’ll get to experience the “incredible beauty” of America’s national parks, no matter who’s in office.
