The Daily Mail claims that Antarctica is losing 130 gigatons of ice per year. (An earlier version of my post had a typo and said 159)
The trouble is twofold:
NSIDC: “The Antarctic Ice Sheet contains 30 million cubic kilometers (7.2 million cubic miles) of ice.”
A gigaton of ice is approximately one cubic kilometer of ice.
So … at 130 gigatons per year, how long before Antarctica melts? That would be 30,000,000 / 130.
I’m guessing our interglacial will end long before that. And the ice will have stopped melting and started growing.
What the Klimate Kult doesn’t tell you is that the minute Antarctica stops melting is the moment most of humanity will start to die because that when the interglacial ends.
And it will end.
