Quotes

...data suggest that did not happen," said co-author Tom Neumann, a cryospheric scientist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. "We don't know how much of the ice sheet remained – to estimate it, we'd have to study other ice cores in Greenland that have sediment in the bottom to see if ancient soil is preserved under those sites as well."
"Rather than scraping and sculpting the landscape, the ice sheet has been frozen to the ground, like a giant freezer that's preserved an antique landscape" , said Paul R Bierman, of the Department of Geology and Rubenstein School of the Environment and Natural Resources at the University of Vermont and lead...
"We therefore conclude that the hypothesis of [Lu] is not only inferior to the mainstream explanation of the present climate change, but that it is based on unphysical and fundamentally flawed premises."
"[Instead] we demonstrate that the Greenland Ice Sheet is not acting as an agent of erosion; in fact, at its centre, it has performed incredibly little erosion since its inception almost three million years ago.’ Dr Bierman described the ice sheet as a refrigerator that has preserved the landscape."
