Un-Settled Science

The “settled” science of climate change continued to have a bad week, in the aftermath of the United States’ departure from the Paris accords.

Scientists believe the Thwaites Glacier’s melt is responsible for 1% of the projected global sea level rise. According to the new study, earlier studies overestimated the glacier’s ice loss by 7% over the next half century. While there are still some significant modeling difficulties, Helene Seroussi, the lead researcher on the project noted that
