From the Register:
A trio of glaciers in a vast region of northeastern Greenland previously thought to be stable are thinning and moving into the sea, forcing climate scientists to reevaluate their projections of sea-level rise upward.
“We’re seeing an acceleration of ice loss,” study coauthor Michael Bevis of Ohio State University told USA Today. “Now, there’s more ice leaving than snow arriving.”
and the Punchline (We told You So in another post), and metmars – deny this:
The Jakobshavn Isbræ remains the badass when it comes to glacial melt into the ocean, contributing approximately 30 metric gigatons of water into the sea each year, on average. That said, NEGIS’ Zachariae Isstrøm is already contributing around 10 metric gigatons per year now – up from nothing just a few years back – and one of the paper’s coauthors, Shfaqat Khan of the Technical University of Denmark, told E&E that ice loss in northeastern Greenland is now 15 to 20 metric gigatons and increasing.
“This is the first time anyone has ever observed a sudden acceleration of ice loss in the downhill (outlet) portions of a really long ice stream,” Ohio States’ Bevis told Mashable. “So, we are in terra incognito.”
I hope your mansions in the Hamptons get washed away in a tidal wave with you in them, and that you die slowly out to sea waiting to be rescued amid the debris.
