Antarctica is Growing

A new study from NASA reveals that the Antarctic ice sheets have grown. Satellite measurements over the past twenty years reveal a tremendous increase in the mass of the ice, despite what global warming hoaxers say.

"the Antarctic ice sheet showed a net gain of 112 billion tons of ice a year from 1992 to 2001. That net gain slowed to 82 billion tons of ice per year between 2003 and 2008."

More snow is accumulating and congealing into ice than is melting. And as the region warms, more moisture is drawn to the middle of the continent where it falls as snow, not only offsetting any losses, but increasing ice coverage. Rather than contributing to sea level rise, the increase in Antarctic ice is lowering sea levels by 0.23 mm per year.

A new satellite will be launched in 2018 (allegedly) to continue measuring ice thickness.
