NASA Survey Confirms Climate Warming Impact of Polar Ice Sheets

"In the most comprehensive survey ever undertaken of the massive ice sheets covering both Greenland and Antarctica, NASA scientists confirm climate warming is changing how much water remains locked in Earth's largest storehouses of ice and snow. "If the trends we're seeing continue and climate warming continues as predicted, the polar ice sheets could change dramatically," said survey lead author Jay Zwally of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md. "The Greenland ice sheet could be facing an irreversible decline by the end of the century."

Editor's note: Wow. Just a few weeks back a young White House political appointee in NASA PAO who lied on his resume was trying to stiffle NASA scientists from saying exactly what this official NASA press release now says.
