We all know that Trump is a renowned braggart and proven liar. The gold standard for stupid statements and juvenile behaviour. It's so bad that it's not funny.
On this forum, we have one individual who tries to emulate The Donald. You know who that is!!!!
Back on topic, the time for action is NOW before it is too late.
"West Antarctica Begins to Destabilize With ‘Intense Unbalanced Melting’
Warmer ocean water is attacking ice at its base, adding dangerously to sea-level rise.
... The bottom of the world has drawn increased scrutiny from scientists over the last few years, as West Antarctic ice loss in some places shows signs of becoming “unstoppable.” There’s enough water locked up in West Antarctica’s Amundsen Sea region alone to raise the global average sea level by four feet, and it’s the fastest-melting spot on the continent. The National Science Foundation and a U.K. counterpart last week announced that they’ll fund up to $25 million in research that will help the scientific community better understand the timing and mechanics of a critical glacier, the Thwaites. It’s basically the climate-science equivalent of an FBI “Most Wanted” poster.
A study issued on Tuesday in Nature Communications measures directly just how dramatically glaciers are being gnawed at from beneath. The research focuses on those that empty into a section of the Amundsen Sea just south of the Thwaites Glacier. A significant portion of Antarctica is now subject to “intense unbalanced melting,” the authors write..."http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/ ... ed-melting
