Here's the actual data from the paper. Notice that the thinning is basically confined to one side.



And where are all the antarctic volcanoes? Yep, same place:




Funny how none of the MSM news releases based on the study or our alarmist friends make the obvious connection.
Now this is interesting. Worthy of further exploring. Can you provide a link to the research please so I can check it out further?

But here's a theory on Antarctic ice sheet melt. Geothermal. Don't laugh. I haven't delved into it, but apparently it is a valid theory. There's some sense in it because the ice is thinning from underneath. The ice sheets are too thick to be influenced by any winds, air temps or other atmospheric conditions below a certain depth and that only leaves the sea and land influence beneath. This theory also explains the thinning and expanding area being observed.

Now, just to make it clear, I haven't researched this myself and I'm not saying this is what's happening but I am saying it's worth thinking about.

And my numbers do add up. I'm the first to admit even I was surprised, but it is what it is. On the planetary scale, numbers are huhege so even numbers that seem impressive to our relative thinking are trivial on the global scale.

An interesting proposition, worthy of further reading.

The suggestion that the ice is only 'thinning' from underneath was not argued in the film of Ice Chasers or the doco I posted earlier today. The evidence in that is that massive amounts of melting surface water is cascading into casims (forgot what they called them) but they showed these on video. They clearly Exist. You might also recall that one if the glaciers has reduced in size to the height if the empire state building.

Given the photographic evidence shown in the film over three years, it's quite clear that surface ice is melting. You see it in the pictures. It's quite clear.

But it is an interesting theory worth further reading.

If. Notice that word. And maybe I'm not channelling your thoughts but nothing you've said you've done actually in this thread seems to be true???

Its the acceleration that is the alarming bit. It went from what was 25km3 in the 9 years between 94 to 03 to a sudden 310km3 in the 9 years between 03 to 12.

At that rate, if it continues we are looking at the next 9 years, being 2012 to 2021 will be up around 600 or a little less if it remains at a 70% acceleration. It doesn't take too much maths to work out that if it increases at 70% for the next 4 cycles alone, (as long as it doesn't increase from 70% ) then 8000 years is not even close. (I acknowledge you meant 80000 years. But your maths in that case is even worse)

Your response was:
The hype and hysteria was the most alarming bit. I'll apologise if your right in 2 centuries, promise ;-)

Mate, show everyone your numbers on how long it would take instead of extruding verbal diarrhoea as illustrated by this post.

Bingo! But as you can see, questioning the faith incurs fire and brimstone.

What? Is it just made up? It's got to have come from somewhere?

What is wrong with you Reefmagnet?

I'll tell you what, it's clear your not serious in any sort of honest enquiry around this topic because you quickly revert to uttering offence, you refuse (most of the time) to respond to questions without getting silly. So I'll leave it to you.

Does this make you a volcanism denier? Do you want proof of volcanoes?

I'm just saying how it is. You have made assumption, after assumption and attack anyone with an opinion that differs from yours. You demand peer reviewed research if you don't agree with something or it conflicts with your preconceived notions while at the same time refusing to expand or substantiate your points of view in any way.

Want an answer that suits your views on retreating glaciers and Antarctic ice sheet thinning? Fine. It's caused by regional anomalies that have no influence on overall global climate just as you will find constantly quoted about the medieval warm period and little ice age in all the pro-AGW peer reviewed papers you care to find. For evidence, the different proportions of Ice thinning in Antarctica and the different rates of recession of glaciers.

Now... Back to my sunset.

Jackdale. Congratulations. You are the copy and paste champion of CF. Well done. BTW do you ever get to do anything else by copy and paste?

Oh the irony. The one you referenced is not a curt and paste. I quote evidence to support my contentions, something I learned to do in my studies.
