The next couple of paragraphs will sound trite and condescending, only because they are. I am sure you have noticed the bombardment of global warming alerts, warnings, flags etc, etc. I can only take so much of the political manipulation, leaving factual science far behind – so much so I just want to scream like a lion.
If I were a lion it would look and sound something like this:

In a scientific study released two days ago, I found so many inaccuracies – I’m not sure where to start. So I will take the first one. New research from Durham University advocate that a massive volcano could cause localized warming. Hmm, let me think for a minute…I’m going to take a wild guess that when a mantle plume breaks through the surface – creating or reviving a volcano bringing with it super-heated rock/magma at temperatures between 1,300° F to 2,400° F I would think the “localized” area would get quite warm. And if it were to occur in the area of an ice sheet, well again I’m guessing it would melt the sheet.
In a second point they make in their finding, is when a massive volcano erupts, it augments global warming by well uhh…warming. Factcheck: Large volcanic eruptions cause “global cooling” and can maintain its cooling trend for 3 years or longer. Sure, volcanoes release carbon, however, the writers of this study would have you believe that if any large volcano were to erupt, it would surely be a coffin-nail to the end of the world.
Factcheck: There is far more danger which would occur if a large or massive volcano erupts as a result of “cooling temperatures” not warming.
Factcheck: Just one month ago, on Oct. 30th 2015, NASA disclosed their detailed study of ‘ice melt’ vs ‘ice accumulation. In their own words:
NASA Report of Detailed Study Concerning Ice Melt vs Ice Accumulation.
NASA is unabashed in directly challenging the conclusions of other studies, especially the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) report, which they say Antarctica is overall losing land ice.
According to the new analysis of satellite data, the Antarctic ice sheet showed a net gain of 112 billion tons of ice a year from 1992 to 2001. That net gain slowed to 82 billion tons of ice per year between 2003 and 2008.
“We’re essentially in agreement with other studies that show an increase in ice discharge in the Antarctic Peninsula and the Thwaites and Pine Island region of West Antarctica,” said Jay Zwally, a glaciologist with NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, and lead author of the study, which was published on Oct. 30 in the Journal of Glaciology. “Our main disagreement is for East Antarctica and the interior of West Antarctica – there, we see an ice gain that exceeds the losses in the other areas.” Zwally added that his team “measured small height changes over large areas, as well as the large changes observed over smaller areas.”
