NASA & THE IPCC GIGO SNAFU

NASA & THE IPCC GIGO SNAFU
The IPPC Climate Change 2014 Synthesis Report claims [with “high confidence”] that over the last two decades Antarctica has been losing ice and that the rate of sea level rise since the mid-19th century has been larger than the mean rate during the previous two millennia.

1.1.3 Cryosphere
Over the last two decades, the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets have been losing mass (high confidence).

1.1.4 Sea level
Over the period 1901–2010, global mean sea level rose by 0.19 [0.17 to 0.21] m.

The rate of sea level rise since the mid-19th century has been larger than the mean rate during the previous two millennia (high confidence).

Then along comes Jay Zwally [Cryospheric Sciences Laboratory, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center / Earth System Science Interdisciplinary Center, University of Maryland] with a contradictory study showing that the ice sheet in Antarctica has been gaining mass since 1992.

Mass changes of the Antarctic ice sheet impact sea-level rise as climate changes, but recent rates have been uncertain.

Ice, Cloud and land Elevation Satellite (ICESat) data (2003–08) show mass gains from snow accumulation exceeded discharge losses by 82 ± 25 Gt a–1, reducing global sea-level rise by 0.23 mm a–1.

European Remote-sensing Satellite (ERS) data (1992–2001) give a similar gain of 112  ± 61 Gt –1.

The good news according to Jay Zwally is that Antarctica is not contributing a rising sea.

“The good news is that Antarctica is not currently contributing to sea level rise, but is taking 0.23 millimeters per year away,” said Dr. Zwally.

Antarctica is actually gaining ice, says NASA. Is global warming over?

The bad news for the IPCC is they have lost 0.27 millimetres per year of rising sea level.

“But this is also bad news,” he added.

“If the 0.27 millimeters per year of sea level rise attributed to Antarctica in the IPCC report is not really coming from Antarctica, there must be some other contribution to sea level rise that is not accounted for.”

The bad news continues for the IPCC because it appears NASA has miraculously manufactured the sea level rise so that is has grown from a modest 1.0 mm per year [as reported in 1992] to its current alarmist rate of 3.22 mm per year.

In 1982, NASA reported sea level rising 1.0 mm/year (less than 4 inches per century) from 1880 to 1980, and nearly flat after 1950.

NASA has since increased 1880-1980 sea level rise rates by 60% to six inches per century.

But six inches per century isn’t very scary either, so they switched measurement systems and added on 0.3 mm/year for a completely fraudulent tampering, called the Global Isostatic Adjustment (GIA) – which has absolutely nothing to do with the measurement of sea surface height.

How NASA Fraudsters Quadrupled Sea Level Rise – Steven Goddard – 2 Nov 2015

What NASA giveth to the IPCC [“added on 0.3 mm/year”] they also taketh away from the IPCC [“0.27 millimeters per year of sea level rise attributed to Antarctica”].

This data fiasco means the IPCC sea level analysis is a text-book GIGO SNAFU.

Garbage in, garbage out (GIGO) in the field of computer science or information and communications technology refers to the fact that computers, since they operate by logical processes, will unquestioningly process unintended, even nonsensical, input data (“garbage in”) and produce undesired, often nonsensical, output (“garbage out”).

SNAFU is a military slang acronym meaning “Situation Normal: All Fucked/Fouled Up.”

Quelle surprise!

    “This partitioning [aka divvying-up] of the data based upon the preconceived ideas of Settled Science means Earth Scientists will continue to churn out bizarre and erratic sea level change data as they flounder in the dark abyss of mainstream tidal theory. ”
