|Yes, the whole point was that the goof ball can't actually name a glacier that's growing. Alaska or Norway... Largest state in the US... maybe a little more specificity.|
I've already done the research.
For example here: http://www.skepticalscience.com/himalay....ate.htm
From 1946-2005 228 glaciers world wide have been monitored. Of those, the vast majority are shrinking (77% in 2002 and 94% in 2003).
Indeed, if you look at the link, it actually names the glaciers that are increasing in size. Shockingly, none of them are in Alaska.
So, our current troll is both lazy and ignorant. Which was my entire point in asking the question.
The source is right here:
Seriously? Those links are 5 years old. And if you read them, they say that the one year (2008) increase is an anomaly.
Wow, you're lazy.
And the original source is Anthony Watts... a person who took money from the Heartland Institute, then lied about and has publicly declared "I'm prepared to accept whatever result they produce, even if it proves my premise wrong."
Nd then, when Mueller's work cause Mueller to accept AGW, Watts
From WIkipedia... original source links at the Wikipedia site here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki.......logger)
|backed off his position, saying the study is of no value because its parts have not been peer reviewed, "When the science and peer review is finished, the results are likely to look different." Watts said that much of the BEST data should be thrown out, "...there is no adjustment procedure in place to fix this, [...] BEST tries to solve it, and I applaud them for the attempt. But without knowing the history of the station, even their methodology doesn't deal with it".|
So, Watts is a liar. I wouldn't accept a report of rain from him unless I checked it myself.
But if you'd prefer to accept his word over every actual climate researcher, I can't stop you. But I can laugh at you, long and loud.
Watts is a climate researcher. It is true. Doubt it if you want, but at least check it, moron.
Can you read? I did check and my data goes back almost 7 decades with over 200 glaciers.
You couldn't even name one. Just "somewhere in Alaska" maybe (in 2005) there was a glacier that was bigger then than it was 10 years ago.
Just run along and go play. There are adults talking.
Ignored by those who can't provide evidence for their claims.
