“Glaciers are melting!” – Yes, That’s What They Do.

Himilayan Glacier

As I have written from time to time, “global warming” is a tool of the left to gain control over your lives. “But”, you say, “glaciers are melting”. Yes, glaciers are indeed melting – that’s what they do: they melt and create rivers of fresh water. Over time, some glaciers recede while others advance. It’s all a function of ever-changing weather patterns.

Rivers of water and verdant forests once covered modern deserts like the Sahara. Weather changes.

Here in the United States, we receive approximately 100 Watts per square foot surface area during daylight hours, yielding approximately 438,000 watt-hours per square foot per year.

To put this into perspective, assume a home of 2,000 square feet. Sunlight energy equates to 200,000 Watts (200 kW). Well, we know your home doesn’t instantaneously use 200 kW. Do the math:

[438,000 Watt-hours per year] X [2k000 square feet] = 876,000,000 Watt-hours

[876,000,000 Watt-hours] X [9 cents per kilo-Watt-hour] = $78,840 annual electric bill!

The sun, the center of our solar system, is very, very big and it is a the singular largest contributor of heat energy to all the earth. Man, by comparison, is very, very tiny.

Total surface area of the earth is 200,000,000 (200 million) square miles, including land and water surfaces. Approximately 30% of total surface area is land, just under 60,000,000 (60 million) square miles.

A report published this week dispels the myth that Antarctica is melting away.

Twenty-year-old models which have suggested serious ice loss in the eastern Antarctic have been compared with reality for the first time – and found to be wrong, so much so that it now appears that no ice is being lost at all.

Disparity between myth and reality is a function of data. The myth was based on faulty assumed data; real data exposed the truth.

Has the earth ever been warmer? No doubt about it. Do you know dinosaurs roamed Alaska? How did they survive the cold? It was not cold when they were there. It was very, very warm.

Has the earth ever been much colder? What do you know about “Glacier Girl”, a P-38 recovered from

Read for yourself how aviation enthusiast 74-year-old Brad McManus recovered this aircraft, restored it so that it flies over the the land of the free and the home of the brave today.

‘Glacier Girl’ landed on a glacier July 15, 1942
McManus recovered her July 15, 1992
Over 50 years, 268 feet of ice accumulated over this P-38
