Glacier experts debunk NASA’s “hot air” on global warming?

NASA’s claim that Greenland is experiencing “unprecedented” melting is nothing but a bunch of hot air, according to scientists who say the country’s ice sheets melt with some regularity.

A heat dome over the icy country melted a whopping 97 percent of Greenland’s ice sheet in mid-July, NASA said, calling it yet more evidence of the effect man is having on the planet.

But the unusual-seeming event had nothing to do with hot air, according to glaciologists. It was actually to be expected.

“Ice cores from Summit station [Greenland’s coldest and highest] show that melting events of this type occur about once every 150 years on average. With the last one happening in 1889, this event is right on time,” said Lora Koenig, a Goddard glaciologist and a member of the research team analyzing the satellite data. . . .

    This is not surprising, NASA and many other socialist fed organizations are working feverishly to continue the brainwashing of the world with this tripe.

    Except that even NASA said the event was regular when they initially reported it. In fact, I recall hearing the DAY that NASA reported the melting that they introduced it with the caveat that "ice core samples show periodic 150 years of melting". In fact, no one at NASA EVER said that the melting was 100% man-made.

    What NASA DID say, however, was that the melting was a good natural indication of what further global warming activity would do to the Greenland Ice Sheet outside of this regular 150-year period.
