Upcoming paper in Nature – Greenland ice sheet melt: “it’s weather, not climate”

Upcoming paper in Nature – Greenland ice sheet melt: “it’s weather, not climate”. Anthony Watts tacks a fabricated quote onto a press release about a pending UBC paper in Nature on the behavior of Greenland’s ice-sheet. Somehow this makes the paper denialist ammunition.

So surges in meltwater can overwhelm existing drainage capacity and hence accelerate ice flow. Well, that’s it for Global Warming, isn’t it? Clearly all glacial melting is simply due to a decades-long series of random weather events.

  1. They’d better watch out …. “School created computer models that account for the complex fluid dynamics occurring at the interface of glacier and bedrock.” So this is all about a computer model? I’m shocked.
