NASA Study Shows That Antarctica Is Actually Gaining More Ice Than It’s Losing

A controversial NASA report has concluded that more ice is accumulating in the Antarctic than is being lost due to climate change. Issued last week, the report, “Mass Gains of Antarctic Ice Sheet Greater than Losses,” concluded that Antarctica is is not currently contributing to rising sea levels.

“But this is also bad news,” added Dr. Zwally, lead author of the report and a glaciologist with Nasa Goddard Space Flight Centre. “If the 0.27 millimetres 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.”
