Looking back at the discussions about the Antarctic ice sheet gaining or losing mass, the 2015 Nasa study that suggested ice gain has been debunked.
Followup studies using precise satellite data found the growth areas only accumulated 1/3 of the mass the study suggested and the actual local gain is less than the loss elsewhere.

See for a detailed analysis of this case.

If I duckduckgo I get endless lists of paid-by sites citing the NASA study but not that it was rebuked. Go figure.
2011 Honda Insight + HID, LEDs, tiny PV panel, extra brake pad return springs, neutral wheel alignment, 44/42 PSI (air), PHEV light (inop), tightened wheel nut.
lifetime FE over 0.17 Gmeter or 0.1 Mmile.

Investors woes:
"In hindsight, I should have placed a bet on the horse that won the race"
"In hindsight, I should have bet more on that horse"
