Faster Melting?

This is just plain BS. If ice is already floating in water and it melts, the level of the water does not rise, because the ice was already displacing that amount of water. This is scientifically and moronically retarded.

Remember, though, that 'melting ice' is a commonly used ploy by the climate alarmists. They really want the idiots out there to fall victim to this scam.

All of this BS comes in the midst of one of the coldest, record-setting winters in decades. We owe all this continuing hysteria to Al Gore.

Polar ice caps melting faster

THE ice caps are melting so fast that the world's oceans are rising more than twice as fast as they were in the 1970s, scientists have found.

They have used satellites to track how the oceans are responding as billions of gallons of water reach them from melting ice sheets and glaciers.

The effect is compounded by thermal expansion, in which water expands as it warms, according to the study by Anny Cazenave of the National Centre for Space Studies in France.

These findings come at the same time as a warning from an American academic whose research suggests Labour's policies to cut carbon emissions 80% by 2050 are doomed.
