New Study Confirms Himalayan Glaciers Expanding - Opposite of IPCC Climate Model Predictions
The IPCC's climate models are notorious for being wrong - a new study of the Karakoram mountain range (the western end of the Himalayan range) finds the glaciers expanding (gaining mass) and not contributing to a rise in sea levels, which again is a confirmation of the troubling inaccuracy of computer model simulations and of the "experts"
Read here. In a nutshell, the meaning of this study:
"Gardelle et al. conclude by stating that their measurements "confirm an anomalous mass balance in the Karakoram region and indicate that the contribution of Karakoram glaciers to sea-level rise was -0.01 mm/year for the period from 1999 to 2008," or "0.05 mm/year lower than suggested before." As for how this complete change of direction in the perceived mass balance history of the Karakoram glaciers could have occurred, Cogley (2012) writes - in a contemporaneous commentary on the work of Gardelle et al. - that "by a quirk of the atmospheric general circulation that is not understood, more snow is being delivered to the mountain range at present, and less heat," which leads one to wonder if there might well be a whole lot of things that are "not understood" about earth's climate ... by even the most brilliant of the world's scientists."
