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.

New Reports Say Number Of NY Nursing Home Deaths Much Higher Than Reported

Published

on

A brand new report has hit the news cycle, and it’s not at all good news for New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. The report alleges that the number of folks who died at nursing homes of the coronavirus, which were mostly due to horrific policy decisions by Cuomo himself, are much higher than first reported. Cuomo has taken a lot of heat for his mishandling of the COVID-19 pandemic and for decisions that led to the deaths of thousands of at-risk individuals in nursing home facilities. The left has been attempting to spin the situation and make Cuomo out to be some sort of hero, but nobody is buying that garbage. Check out the details from The Daily Wire: “New York’s coronavirus death toll in nursing homes, already among the highest in the nation, could actually be a significant undercount,” the Associated Press reported. “Unlike every other state with major outbreaks, New York only counts residents who died on nursing home property and not those who were transported to hospitals and died there.” According to the AP, on paper, the nursing home only reported a total of four deaths from the coronavirus out of its nearly 150-bed facility. However, the true number is 21 dead, most of whom were transported out of the facility and to hospitals before they died. “That statistic that could add thousands to the state’s official care home death toll of just over 6,600,” the AP continued. “But so far the administration of Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo has refused to divulge the number, leading to speculation the state is manipulating the figures to make it appear it is doing a better than other states and to make a tragic situation less dire.” Keep in mind that New York City became a hot bed for COVID-19 infections,…

Coronavirus Relief Negotiations Hit Yet Another Snag, This Time The Obstacle Is State Aid

Published

on

Trump administration officials and leaders within the Democratic Party continue to remain at a stalemate when it comes to negotiating another coronavirus relief package, as money for state and local governments appears as yet another snag in the negotiations. Of course, the left has also been trying to politicize this relief package and use it to get some wish list items of their passed into law, which is also not helping things. As of now, both sides in the debate over the relief package are bickering about whether or not states should receive more funding in the next round of emergency funding, and if so, how much is appropriate. Here’s more on this from Fox News: Negotiators are trying to close the divide between the Senate Republicans’ $1 trillion HEALS Act, which includes no new funding for states, and the House’s $3.4 trillion HEROES Act, which allocates about $1 trillion in new funding for state and local governments. The stalemate puts at risk potentially trillions of dollars in aid for families, businesses and the U.S. economy, including a fresh round of $1,200 stimulus checks, extra unemployment aid for millions of out-of-work Americans, $100 billion to help reopen schools and relief for cash-strapped state and local governments. There were no signs of a détente on Monday, with each party blaming the other for the stalled-out discussions. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, one of the lead negotiators in the relief package, referred to the Democrats’ request for $1 trillion for state aid “an absurd number,” stating there’s “plenty” of cash available already for the governments. “We’re not going to give a trillion dollars for state and local,” he said in an interview with CNBC. “That’s just not a reasonable approach.” President Trump has also made his feelings clear on this number, and as…
