I remember in the 70's they were claiming we were headed for another ice age. Then in the 80's when that didn't pan out it was global warming, and we would fry the planet by the year 2000. Then when that didn't pan out the global warming alarmists said the sea levels would rise and most of the east coast and west coast would be underwater by 2010. So, please excuse me when I say this is just more climate change Bull****!

stick your head in an ostrich hole in the sand
read the article and see how different scientists are saying the same thing. And these are real scientists not some engineer who also testified that tobacco was good for ya.

When you find out something is happening that affects you adversely you stop said activity or permission for same.
So why didn't all those soldiers run away instead of standing to fight and die in order for people with exaggerated estimates of their own importance could whine about the far more pedestrian sacrifices that they might be called on to make for the welfare of the greater community?

SALTWN - if you believe in climate change - it is ALREADY TO LATE:
West Antarctic Ice Sheet's Collapse Triggers Sea Level Warning - NBC News

Part Of West Antarctic Ice Sheet Starting Slow, Unstoppable Collapse, Studies Indicate

Melting Of Antarctic Ice Sheet Might Be Unstoppable : The Two-Way : NPR


Western Antarctic ice sheet collapse has already begun, scientists warn | Environment | The Guardian

Those (and other) sources say the ice sheet collapse is:

unstoppable
Personally I don't doubt some type of climate change. I do doubt that it is primarily human caused. Never-the-less if you believe that the ice sheet is collapsing it is already to late to stop it through green energy non pollution etc.
We do however how have hundreds of years and perhaps it might be wise (after further studies) to close Florida and other low lying areas in the world to future development.

yes it looks to be too late except for PLANNING strategy which is what people who have common sense are doing.
If you doubt humans are affecting it you laugh in the face of science.
