Slate Yelps That Shrinking Antarctic Ice Is Destroying Gravity Itself

For once climate kook doomsayers have some good news. “Climate change” can help you lose weight. This is because the imaginary phenomenon of manmade global warming is effecting gravity itself. From Slate yesterday:

Gravity—yes, gravity—is the latest victim of climate change in Antarctica. That’s the stunning conclusion announced Friday by the European Space Agency.

“The loss of ice from West Antarctica between 2009 and 2012 caused a dip in the gravity field over the region,” writes the ESA, whose GOCE satellite measured the change. Apparently, melting billions of tons of ice year after year has implications that would make even Isaac Newton blanch. …

The biggest implication is the new measurements confirm global warming is changing the Antarctic in fundamental ways. Earlier this year, a separate team of scientists announced that major West Antarctic glaciers have begun an “unstoppable” “collapse,” committing global sea levels to a rise of several meters over the next few hundred years. …

Current best estimates show that global seas could be as much as 50 inches higher by century’s end, due in large part to ice melt in West Antarctica.

Wow, that’s scary. Unless you read this in the same publication a week ago last Thursday:

For four days in a row this week, sea ice surrounding Antarctica has broken all-time records. But—get this—the ice is expanding, not shrinking.

It’s the third consecutive year that the icebergs that surround the continent have expanded into unseen territory.

Oh but that’s sea ice, not land ice. Whatever. The ice isn’t melting because it is not getting warmer, proving the entire theory the hoax is based on to be false.

But maybe if they hype the herd into enough of a panic, not enough people will realize what is going on until they have centralized the economy and it is too late to get our relative freedom and standard of living back.
