Study concludes Antarctica is gaining ice, rather than losing it

I remember years ago going to counter protest a global warming march in Wellington and being assaulted and screamed at by thousands of wild eyed mouth frothing climate change alarmists. The way those people reacted to me and my difference of opinion about global warming leaves me in no doubt that you could have all the science in this universe and and the next proving global warming is bollocks but the loony enviro-facists would still be demanding you be jailed for climate denial.

A new study published in the Journal of Glaciology by a team led by NASA researcher Jay Zwally produces a surprising and controversial new estimate of large mass gains. Zwally's team has been working on satellite measurements of ice height for some time, but this estimate is significantly different from even their own previous work.

The researchers have put a lot of work into these calculations, and the end result is an estimated Antarctic ice mass gain of 112 ± 61 gigatons per year between 1992 and 2001, and 82 ± 25 gigatons per year between 2003 and 2008.
