So the "dumb" blonde is reading Nature articles for her amusement?
The articale says: The total contribution to sea level rise from all ice-covered regions is 1.48 ± 0.26 mm from January 2003 to December 2010. But the high mountains of Asia show a mass loss considerably smaller then previous estimates.
It don't see any indicatcion that global warming is a hoax from this data.
Clearly the ice is melting and the sea level rising = the world warming.
Now the high mountains of Asia, seem not very well modeled. there were problems with that era, also in earlier studies. does not mean the global warming thing is based on weak data.
actually it would be no surprise even if the ice and snow increased in some era during warming. warmer air evaporates more water, thus is more humid when it reaches the mountains, which can result in more snowfall, ice accumalation etc. For this reason for example, for Antartica there is an increase in ice mass predicated.
anyway there was a stagnation of temperature in the last 7-8 years which some see as hint that there is no global warming. But there were always some years with stagnation, looks like a pretty clear warming trend to me.
