Major Greenland Glacier Growing Again After Previous Shrinking

Isn’t it amusing that everything they see that goes against their narrative is proof that… their narrative is still right?

A key glacier in Greenland is growing again after shrinking for several years, according to NASA.

“The Jakobshavn (YA-cob-shawv-en) glacier around 2012 was retreating about 1.8 miles (3 kilometers) and thinning nearly 130 feet (almost 40 meters) annually,” the Associated Press reported. “But it started growing again at about the same rate in the past two years, according to a study in Monday’s Nature Geoscience. Study authors and outside scientists think this is temporary.”

“That was kind of a surprise. We kind of got used to a runaway system,” said Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland ice and climate scientist Jason Box, the AP noted. “The good news is that it’s a reminder that it’s not necessarily going that fast. But it is going.”

Box added, “arguably the most important Greenland glacier because it discharges the most ice in the northern hemisphere. For all of Greenland, it is king.”

Scientists say that the cooling in the North Atlantic waters caused the glacier to begin growing again.

“The water in Disko Bay, where Jakobshavn hits the ocean, is about 3.6 degrees cooler (2 degrees Celsius) than a few years ago, study authors said,” the AP added.

Naturally, all these scientists rushed to note that this “may” only be temporary, and that global warming will “likely” resume soon.

University of Washington ice scientist Ian Joughin insisted that global warming will resume soon enough, adding, “to a large extent, a temporary blip. Downturns do occur in the stock market, but overall the long-term trajectory is up. This is really the same thing.”

Of course.

In generations past people assumed that a drought was proof the gods didn’t like them. Now the same sort of people are bowing at the feet of the gods of global warming.

The truth is, they haven’t a clue why any of this happens. It just happens because weather changes.

But, isn’t it amusing that everything they see that goes against their narrative is proof that… their narrative is still right?

It is far more proof that global warming is a religion, as opposed to science. Everything is “proof” of global warming.

Absolutely everything.

Ilhan Omar’s Housing Plan Costs $1 Trillion; Includes Provisions For Undocumented Immigrants

Published

on

Controversial Congresswoman Ilhan Omar announced her affordable housing program, which will cost $1 trillion, revealing that it includes provisions for illegal immigrants. Omar revealed the “Homes for All Act” on Thursday, which would go hand-in-hand with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal by creating 12 million housing units by ensuring they were all built to the highest environmental standards. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: In her announcement, Omar, 38, explained that her affordable housing plan would ensure that no one is denied access to public housing, no matter their gender identity, race, sexuality, or immigration status. https://twitter.com/Ilhan/status/1197515008982310912 “We will prohibit any discrimination against residents based on sexual orientation, gender, criminal history or immigration status,” Omar explained, later adding, “Doing the Homes for All really gets us closer to having the America I imagined be realized and I’m really excited for the opportunity to now be in a position of influence to get that done.” This would break from the Trump administration’s affordable housing policies. Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson announced in May that undocumented families would be denied taxpayer-funded housing in order to make room for citizens in need of public housing. Omar, who first arrived in America at the age of 12 as a refugee, has noted that the sight of folks living on the streets had a profound impact when she came to this country. Ever since, she has vowed to fight for making housing a human right. https://twitter.com/IlhanMN/status/1197530827741110272 Omar did not provide any information on how the program would be funded.

DNA Test Results Reveal Hunter Biden Is Father Of Arkansas Woman’s Child

Published

on

DNA tests results have “established with scientific certainty” that Hunter Biden, son of former Vice President Joe Biden, is the father of an Arkansas woman’s baby. The woman filed a motion on Wednesday concerning the DNA results. The filing says Biden is “not expected to challenge the results of the DNA test or the testing process.” Here’s more from CNN: Hunter Biden had denied in a previous court filing that he had fathered the child, but agreed in October to a paternity test. Neither Joe Biden’s campaign nor an attorney for Hunter Biden immediately responded to requests for comment. It’s the latest development to thrust the former vice president’s son into the spotlight as Joe Biden seeks the Democratic 2020 presidential nomination. The news came just hours before 10 Democratic contenders met in Atlanta for a debate. Hunter Biden has been the subject of scrutiny in recent months over his business dealings in Ukraine. President Donald Trump’s efforts to convince Ukraine’s President to investigate the company that had reportedly paid Biden as much as $50,000 per month to sit on its board is the subject of the House’s impeachment probe. There is no evidence of wrongdoing on the part of either Biden in Ukraine. Lunden Alexis Roberts, 28, filed the lawsuit back in May asking for child support and health care for the baby, who was born in August of 2018. Roberts’ legal team’s latest filings say that Biden’s family members are eligible for protection by the Secret Service. Roberts petitioned the court to seal any information concerning the identity of the child.
