Nova junk science
17 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode of Nova, which is generally quite good is junk science on steroids. All through the episode facts which are not known are assumed to be true, and facts that might disprove the underlying ideas behind the show are ignored. What the show says is that during the summer the ice sheets covering Greenland melt and the run off water flows into the north Atlantic. What they don't say is that during the winter it snows and the snow is compacted into new ice, and there is no real indication that the amount of ice on Greenland is decreasing.

The show was shot in 2009 so it is not reflective of what has happened since then. But this year a group of global warming enthusiasts traveled to the Antarctica to demonstrate that there was no more ice and were stuck in the nonexistent ice. So much when ideologically generated pseudoscience conflicts with actual fact.

They can't tell us what the weather will be like next week, but they can tell us that in 2100 the sea level will be three feet higher because Greenland is melting.

There is not enough space here to give a full critique of all that is wrong with this leftist propaganda, but it is utterly rotten.
