A comment was made on my last science expatheticment post that it would only work with “floating ice” but the majority of ice we have on earth is in the form of “ice-sheets” and therefore the expatheticment wouldn’t work.
They would be correct, BUT! This begs the question, if the ice sheets melt, would they really increase the water levels of the ocean and flood many coastal regions?
Truth be told, … No. They won’t.
The jack-wangs who promote this garbage want people to believe that it will because the wealthy elitists who fund the pathetic scientists only want reports based on the assumption and estimations that extreme factors are ALWAYS in play. But for the oceans to rise to the levels reported, those very extreme conditions would have to remain constant for a very long time.
Let me explain by using the Loch Ness in Scotland as an example… (sorry, no science experiment this time around.)
Let’s assume that during the winter months Nessy decides to leave the Loch Ness and move to happier hunting grounds in deeper waters. After she leaves, Loch Ness happens to freeze over with one solid layer of ice that happens to be a sheet.
If no moisture falls over the winter months, the ice melts in the spring and the Loch doesn’t rise because the ice sheet isn’t “extra” water.
Interestingly enough if a few snow storms blow through covering the ice sheet of Loch Ness during the winter, AND that snow layer melts along with the ice sheet, then the water level of the Loch Ness would rise because the accumulated snowfall is “extra” water added to the Loch.
But the rise in the lake won’t last very long because the Loch has tributaries that allow for inflow and outflow of water. Not to mention that other weather and atmospheric conditions factor in as well, such as humidity, dew point, elevation and air temperature.
The same can be said for all areas of the world.
For instance, in an area where the humidity and dew point is very dry and the elevation is much higher, the snow that melts around the frozen lake would run down into the lake and cause it to rise, but the “extra” water would flow out of the lake through a stream or brook. And if the lake had no stream or brook for outflow, then evaporation comes into play and usually happens at a much quicker rate than it would in a more humid climate at lower elevations where the dew point is higher.
My point here is that the “ice sheets” that cover the majority of the earth can’t make the ocean levels rise if they melt, because they are formed from the waters in which they float; which means that even if the ice sheet melts, they aren’t considered ‘extra‘ water in the oceans they reside.
Also, just because they are made up of fresh water doesn’t mean the water won’t or can’t blend into the oceans that are made of salt water in which they reside.
If you happen to think fresh water can’t blend into salt water oceans, consider that almost every major fresh water river flows into an ocean, furthermore, the rain that falls from the sky is fresh water but still falls into the salt water oceans around the world and seems to blend with them just fine.
So, what are the “very extreme conditions” that need to be in place for the oceans levels to rise as much as the “experts” claim?
The humidity and dew point levels of the air would have to be so extremely saturated that no “extra” moisture would be allowed to evaporate into the air. For that to happen the entire Earth’s dew point and humidity would have to reach epic levels and remain consistent for a very – long – time. Resulting in very extreme conditions on a massive global scale.
In layman’s terms: The entire earth would have to be ONE constant temperature and remain a giant greenhouse for many, MANY years with humidity and dew points remaining extremely high on every – single – continent. For that to happen, the earth would have to stop tilting on its axis and the southern and northern hemispheres would have to remain equal in ALL climate conditions.
However, since the earth tilts on its axis and doesn’t show any signs that it’s going to stop, resulting in a variety of different climates at any one moment, those extreme conditions CAN NEVER HAPPEN!!!!
Therefore, we still don’t have to worry about global coastal flooding because the earth is never going to reach those extreme climate conditions and it’s pathetic to believe otherwise.
