Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS)—long considered the more vulnerable portion of the continent’s ice as much of it lies below sea level flowing seamlessly into floating ice shelves Satellite observations reveal that the WAIS is losing mass sped up by melting along the base of the floating portions as the oceans warm But the East Antarctic Ice Sheet (EAIS) which lies primarily on land has appeared considerably more stable Yet data from the Pliocene tell a different story says Carys Cook a doctoral student at Imperial College London Mean temperatures from the Pliocene were 2°C to 3°C warmer than today and atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations between 350 and 450 parts per million Some data have also suggested that sea levels were perhaps 22 meters higher than today—and even complete melting of the WAIS and Greenland couldn’t account for more than about 12 meters of that Cook says Melting of the EAIS would have to have contributed To get a better sense of how much melting might have occurred in East Antarctica during the Pliocene Cook and her colleagues studied sediments from a deep marine core about 300 kilometers off the coast of Adélie Land in East Antarctica The core drilled in 2009 by the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP) included a long section of sediments dated to the Pliocene between 53 million and 33 million years ago These sediments the team found told a story of continental erosion patterns as the climate warmed and cooled throughout the epoch In those sediments the team looked for geochemical "fingerprints"—specifically geochemical ratios of neodymium to strontium isotopes—that would help them identify the provenances or sources of the different layers of sediments What they found in the Pliocene sediments was telling: They identified multiple layers containing a unique fingerprint for a large low-lying part of East Antarctica known as the Wilkes Subglacial Basin which is now ice-covered For those sediments to have eroded and ended up offshore in the marine core the basin would have had to be exposed by retreat of the ice the team reports today in Nature Geoscience This does suggest that the East Antarctic Ice Sheet may not be as stable in a warm climate as some models suggest Hillenbrand says And given that it indicates that the Pliocene had both ice-free warm periods and glacial periods it’s an "interesting alternative scenario" to the more extreme reconstructions that suggest either widespread melting across East Antarctica or no melting at all relative to today Still just how sensitive East Antarctic ice is to warming temperatures remains the looming question he adds "The temporal resolution of the record does not allow them to conclude—or exclude—that the [ice] retreat occurred on centennial or millennial timescales" It’s a point that Cook acknowledges "With our current data set we don’t know how quickly these retreat events took place" she says—or whether they occurred each time the Pliocene warmed It may be that the ice repeatedly scoured the basin as it retreated or advanced; alternatively the basin may have been completely exposed for long periods of time One way to try to answer these questions will be to resample the IODP core at higher resolutions in order to track the transitions between ice-sheet retreat and no retreat More cores would be even better—the reason that the vulnerability of East Antarctica has been uncertain is probably simply a lack of information and not just from the land she adds "We need marine sediments we need to drill these deep sediment cores The real records that tell us about erosional processes are the marine sediment-based records"Climate excitement Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) said today’s highly partisan climate science hearing—the first for her committee in 3 years—was "kind of exciting" US Senate Same as it ever was After a 3-year hiatus a key US Senate committee today once again examined the science of climate change sparking feisty and predictably partisan sparring over the reality of climate change and what if anything the United States should do about it "This is something we haven’t done in a while … It’s kind of exciting" said Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) the chair of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works and an ardent supporter of efforts to reduce US emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases "I must say it feels like we’re back to the good old days" agreed Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) the panel’s senior Republican and an outspoken skeptic that global warming is occurring Boxer and the Senate’s other senior Democrats—who control the body—have largely deemphasized the issue since 2010 when they abandoned a major effort to pass legislation aimed at curbing US emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases And the environment committee which plays a central role in writing climate and energy legislation hasn’t held a hearing on climate science since early 2009 But with much of the nation suffering from a fierce drought as well as record high temperatures Boxer apparently decided the time was right to shine a spotlight on the issue The hearing attracted an overflow crowd and the half-dozen senators who attended quickly made it clear that the partisan divide over the issue hadn’t narrowed Republicans either questioned whether global warming is actually occurring or whether curbing US emissions would be worth the economic cost Inhofe used his opening remarks to attack the Obama Administration’s energy policies and the reliability of climate science "What drove the collapse of the global warming movement was that the science of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change [IPCC] was finally exposed" said Inhofe who has called climate change a hoax "For years I had warned that the United Nations was a political body not a scientific body" Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) also questioned climate research including computer models that forecast rising global temperatures over the next century New data have "invalidated the computer models … that’s fact that’s science" he said Boxer immediately challenged Sessions’s analysis The vast majority of climate researchers disagreed with Sessions’s views she noted adding that there were also "probably 1% to 2% of scientists who don’t believe that lung cancer is associated with smoking" Sessions clearly irate responded that he wasn’t “talking about the scientists” but the quality of the data Boxer responded: "You shouldn’t be offended by that" she reassured him since "the conclusion you are coming to is shared by 1% to 2% of scientists" drawing audible laughter from some onlookers in an overflow viewing room Later Sessions clarified his position: "I would acknowledge that we may have some warming and it may be human-caused" he said His concern he added was “how much we can spend to alter it” Democrats in turn bemoaned the continued debate over climate science among politicians "I find it incredible we are still raising the question of whether global warming is real" said Senator Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) He compared his arrival at the hearing to walking "into this bonfire of reality … Our friends on the other side of this issue are very likeable people but they are wrong" "We can’t run away from this issue" argued Senator Bernard Sanders (D-VT) who also tried to systematically challenge Inhofe’s doubts about climate science His words continued an attack he started on the floor of the US Senate yesterday The three scientists invited to testify before the panel also trod well-worn paths Climate scientist Christopher Field director of the Department of Global Ecology of the Carnegie Institution for Science at Stanford University in Palo Alto California emphasized the scientific consensus that global temperatures are rising and that climate change is likely to contribute to extreme weather events Ocean scientist James McCarthy of Harvard University discussed recent evidence from the oceans that climate change is occurring including rising water temperatures Both were invited by Democrats It was the researcher invited by panel Republicans however who got the most attention Climatologist John Christy of the University of Alabama Huntsville emphasized that it was not scientifically defensible to tie the recent droughts or specific extreme weather events to climate change and highlighted the limitations of historical temperature records Recent headlines linking heat waves to climate change "were not based on science" he said "It is more accurate to say this is what Mother Nature looks like because even worse events have happened in the past … The real truth is that we don’t know enough about the climate to predict events like this" Christy said his own studies suggest there is little that US policymakers could realistically do to curb climate change and he counseled against regulation that might increase energy costs "I suspect there will be some negative economic consequences if energy costs rise" he said Boxer challenged the reliability of some of the research Christy cited in his remarks prompting him to concede that one study he mentioned had not been published And when Boxer asked whether he doubted the peer-reviewed papers cited by a recent study of climate change in California the exchange got testy: "I bet they didn’t include my peer-reviewed papers" Christy said alluding to his views that some scientists have been marginalized by "establishment" climate scientists and IPCC What Christy didn’t get to discuss was his proposed solution to that perceived problem which he outlined in his written testimony He calls on Congress to take 5% to 10% of the funds that the United States gives to IPCC (which have averaged about $3 million annually over the last decade) and dedicate it to "a group of well-credentialed scientists to produce an assessment that expresses legitimate alternative hypotheses that have been (in their view) marginalized misrepresented or ignored in previous IPCC reports (and thus EPA and National Climate Assessments) Such activities are often called ‘Red Team’ reports and are widely used in government and industry" Red teams he writes could provide "a parallel scientifically-based assessment regarding the state of climate science which addresses issues which here-to-for [sic] have been un- or under-represented" Given Congress’s apparent gridlock on climate-related legislation however it seems unlikely that Christy will get his wish anytime soon Boxer alluded to the stalemate near the end of the hearing: "We start off unfortunately where we left off" she said noting that the two parties appeared to agree on little Almost on cue Sessions disagreed noting that he and other Republicans had joined with Democrats to help curb greenhouse gas emissions by supporting efforts to improve auto mileage standards and improve energy efficiency Fair point Boxer said:
