From the polar caps to the glaciers of Europe, Asia and South America, global warming is melting the planet’s ice faster than ever and speeding the inundation of the world’s coastlines.

New research shows the annual melt rate grew from 0.8 trillion tons in the 1990s to 1.3 trillion tons by 2017, and has accelerated most in the places with the most ice—the Greenland and Antarctic ice shelves and sheets.

Those massive systems of land and sea-based ice are melting as fast as the worst-case climate scenarios in major global climate reports, said Thomas Slater, a co-author of the new study in The Cryosphere that measured the meltdown from 1994 to 2017, which covers a timespan when every decade was warmer than the previous one and also includes the 20 warmest years on record.

Thank Heaven’s we have a wonderful new President who is taking this threat seriously.
Great news. More land to grow crops on now that the Little Ice Age is ending.

The source..."The Cryosphere" is apparently a consortium of European global warming activists. The claim is based on alleged interpretation of satellite data and the numerical components of computer "models". The accuracy of computer models to predict weather patterns a month from now are questionable. Factor in an activist organization's ability to fudge a couple of numbers in their computer graphics and you could get the same kind of junk that predicted the end of the world in 2020.
