The media has long forgotten but who here can remember last fall's scenic cruise of AGW global warming alarmist all stuck in the Antartic ice trying to prove it was catastropicaly "melting"

I personally figure it is too late now to fix anything and mankind is destined to join other vanished species.
I'll help you out. Miami is still above water because it was never in any danger of being under water.

The entire global warming, cooling, change, or disruption was and is a lie. Whether the lie was deliberate or the result of incompetency is up for debate, but either way it was and is a very profitable or very costly scam, depending on your perdpective. Gore, one of the leading gurus, is not a scientist, writer, or movie producer, yet he has won the highest awards in all three fields, reaping hundreds of millions in the process. Others have followed his lead.

Still, the believers are standing in front of the three card monte dealer and swearing that they know the location of the queen. The difference between the monte sucker and the climate disruption believer is that sooner or later the monte player runs out of money, but the believer is not spending his own money and therefore does not have the incentive to look at the facts.

I rest my case then jimbo as I stated your mind can't be changed so why should I bother since in all honesty it doesn't matter to me. So at this point in my life I could care less what others think since I believe the science not the wishes of those that prefer to stick their heads in the sand. You all can fight all you want about it. Have a good day and life.

I received both of these articles today.

SEAS TO RISE 4 FEET IT CANNOT BE STOPPED!

Irvine, CA — A rapidly melting section of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet appears to be in irreversible decline, with nothing to stop the entire glacial basin from disappearing into the sea, according to researchers at UC Irvine and NASA. The new study presents multiple lines of evidence — incorporating 40 years of observations — that six massive glaciers in the Amundsen Sea sector “have passed the point of no return,” according to glaciologist Eric Rignot, a UC Irvine Earth system science professor who is also with NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. The new study has been accepted for publication in Geophysical Research Letters, a journal of the American Geophysical Union.

These glaciers already contribute significantly to sea level rise, releasing as much ice into the ocean each year as the entire Greenland Ice Sheet does. They contain enough ice to boost the global sea level by four feet (1.2 meters) and are melting faster than most scientists had expected. Rignot said the findings will require that current predictions of sea level rise be revised upward.

“This sector will be a major contributor to sea level rise in the decades and centuries to come,” Rignot said. “A conservative estimate is that it could take several centuries for all of the ice to flow into the sea.”

Global ?Warming:? Antarctic Sea Ice Continues To Break Records | Conservative Byte

So.....which is it? Are we gonna die or is the earth compensating and some members of the "scientific" Community refuse to admit it?

In any event, the process s global and beyond man's abiolity to control. At least with our current coruupted governments hell bent on controkling the activities of man
WELL THE ONE SITE THAT HAS ADS FOR EATING DISORDERS i WOULDNT TRUST just me

If the findings hold up, they suggest that the melting could destabilize neighboring parts of the ice sheet and a rise in sea level of 10 feet or more may be unavoidable in coming centuries.

Global warming caused by the human-driven release of greenhouse gases has helped to destabilize the ice sheet, though other factors may also be involved, the scientists said.

The rise of the sea is likely to continue to be relatively slow for the rest of the 21st century, the scientists added, but in the more distant future it may accelerate markedly, potentially throwing society into crisis.

“This is really happening,” Thomas P. Wagner, who runs NASA’s programs on polar ice and helped oversee some of the research, said in an interview. “There’s nothing to stop it now. But you are still limited by the physics of how fast the ice can flow.”

Two scientific papers released on Monday by the journals Science and Geophysical Research Letters came to similar conclusions by different means. Both groups of scientists found that West Antarctic glaciers had retreated far enough to set off an inherent instability in the ice sheet, one that experts have feared for decades. NASA called a telephone news conference Monday to highlight the urgency of the findings.

More fodder for the deniers.
Well you do have a few bright spots in this thread, yet I see what you mean when you posted in the one I started.

I should have seen this one before posting the same thing.

Yet I would never challenge the deniers.
