Melting Glaciers Slow Earths Rotation (VIDEO) Posted by Chris Tyler | Dec 15, 2015 | Sci/Tech | 13 | Share this:TweetShare on TumblrEmail Related Share: Rate:
What a bunch of huey!!! There is no end to the politically motivated climate change THEORY!!!! 1/1000 of a second???? Please!!!!!! If anyone can look you straight in the eye and repeat this ****, they are really good at lying!!! Climate change is causing terrorism too, right?? Like the mid-east hasn’t been hotter than hell for thousands of years. Do you think we were born yesterday. What idiots!!!
The Earth Rotates as a whole. The implied is physically impossible. I’m sure you can find a few folks with Buddy Holly glasses at COP21 that will likely buy it. I’m sure they will have some great taxes for everyone to pay and stuff to force people to by. That usually clears up fabricated issues with rotundas heavenly bodies. I think they may start with concluding on the significance of polar north and south and why exactly the Northern Arctic Ice caps are receding, and the Southern Antarctic Ice caps are expanding at an unprecedented rate… If it were simply a velocity issue, if that was able to occur, the symptoms would be the ice caps melting substantially and evenly. But wait, better not tell anybody, that would mean that if there is a warming issue that are causing the ice caps to melt, it would be resulting from nature, and not us at all.
What a load of ****, if anything it would be the complete opposite since the mass would be moving towards the center of the earth. And for a science/physics article with not 1 number or equation, you really can’t take any of it as anything but scare science.
Been complaining about needing more hours in the day for a long time. Looks like we may get it. :-}
But seriously… should we be insulted because they think we’re stupid enough to believe such nonsense or should we feel sorry for them for being stupid enough to believe it.
NASA released an article showing that the glaciers where not shrinking. In fact, the article said they where growing. There where careful to say this didn’t mean global worming wasn’t real. But surly this article is at odds with NASA.
i am so confused!
This is a link to a NASA study showing that the ice is growing.
There real question here is, Why is the sea level rising if the ice is growing, not shrinking?
Perhaps the sea level it rising because the ocean floor is still springing back from the melting of the glaciers from the last ice age?
I would say that is another easily explained physically, as H2O is the only molecule on the planet that expands and displaces itself when frozen. Growing ice caps making room for them self.. I still wouldn’t sell your beach home. None of the hounding liberals that boast about it have sold there’s.
…Obviously someone failed Earth Science 101. The rotation of the earth is due to this thing called the core. It’s in the center of the earth. The inner core and the outer core spin in different directions, causing the magnet field on Earth. Now, an earthquake, which is caused when the mantle (the stuff we walk on and dig into) either goes down into the outer core or the mantle expands thanks volcanos. Earthquakes can cause the days to get shorter or longer if they are large enough.
Now, can a change in rotation cause a longer day which may allow for a slight change in the way ice melts? Yes. Does ice melting cause that change? No. Please, end the idiocracy now.
Very well stated Isabella!!
This could backfire on the climatechangers, If Obama hears about this and realizes that it will extend his term in office he will become a climate change denier and claim that he never supported the BS in the first place.
“NASA’s study concluded a net gain of ice on Antarctica which means that the continent is NOT contributing to sea level rise, but is taking .23 millimeters away from seas every year.”
Don’t these people know how much the earth weighs? Mega-Tons of ice must be an insignificant fraction of the Earth’s mass.
NASA Just a few weeks ago came out and said the ice caps are growing, not shrinking. https://www.nasa.gov/feature/goddard/nasa-study-mass-gains-of-antarctic-ice-sheet-greater-than-losses
Science Advances vs NASA…. you decide
I agree with Daniel E Hofford, “More idiocy from the Climatistas.”
His statement perfectly describes the article and the following quotes which use hyperbolic/exaggerated language to pronounce that the miniscule change in the Earth’s rotation is linked to “human-induced climate change”.
“… scientist say the driving force behind the modest but discernible changes in the Earth’s rotation…” “These are small effects, but are another indication of the profound impact of human-induced climate change on the planet, Mitrovica said.”
Seriously… no really, Seriously (?)(!), … The use of “modest” with “discernible” in the same sentence… along with “small effects” and “profound impact of human-induced climate change” to refer to a [miniscule projected] rotational change of 1 second over 1000 centuries [100,000 years] redefines hyperbole [exaggeration as a rhetorical device] and makes Chicken Littles’ cry of “The sky is falling!” pale in comparison and significant only to someone whose Scientific acumen [ability to make good judgments] can be influenced by watching “The Butterfly Effect” one, too many times.
Despite Mitrovica’s claim that these small effects are “another indication of the profound impact of human-induced climate change on the planet; he concludes that “The observed rotation slowdown does not pose a danger to the planet, he said.”
HUH… another study indicating that man is inducing harmful climate change with this study stating “The melting of glaciers is causing a slight slowing of the Earth’s rotation…” only to find, on careful reading, that the “slowdown does not pose a danger to the planet…” So, Man is causing harmful climate change which does not harm the planet. Double HUH!
This is yet another example illustrating why legitimate “Science” is determined by mathematical formula, that are provable by observations agreeing with consistent, repeatable experiments which always give the same results for the applied conditions.
Wikipedia states that “Science is a systematic enterprise that creates, builds and organizes knowledge in the form of testable explanations and predictions about the universe.”
Science is “Fact”, not “Popularity” based. Contrary to the proponents/Scientists who believe in “human-induced climate change…”, the validity of Science is NEVER based on popularity or the number of “Scientists”/people who believe something is true.
Furthermore, why is the following “Climate Change” question never asked: “Which is better for life on this planet? Global warming? or Global Cooling [ice-age]?” Perhaps the answer is that life prospers with a warmer climate. You do not agree? Then compare the life at the planets poles to life at the equator.
Hopefully, this “Science” was not funded by the Taxpayer.
