Faster and Faster

Every time we find out that climate change predictions are in error, what we find is that change is happening faster than predicted, often much faster.

We know that melting ice adds to a rising sea level, and that the greatest contributor to that rise is polar ice sheets on land – Greenland and Antarctica. A study lasting 20 years and released by NASA shows that these land mass ice sheets are “losing mass at an accelerating pace” and that they are now predicted to “become the dominant contributor to global sea level rise, much sooner than model forecasts have predicted.”

Nothing to see here folks, just fill up that SUV and move on.
