Ross Ice Shelf Antarctica

Didn’t they say the science was settled? Weren’t we called “deniers” for doubting?

A new NASA study says that an increase in Antarctic snow accumulation that began 10,000 years ago is currently adding enough ice to the continent to outweigh the increased losses from its thinning glaciers.

The research challenges the conclusions of other studies, including the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) 2013 report, which says that Antarctica is overall losing land ice.

One of the great truths that underpinned the Enlightenment was that all knowledge is provisional and that doubt is the key to greater wisdom.

It is a very dangerous development intellectually to now see “sceptic” turned into a label of abuse.
