Re: “This is happening

My point about Greenland is that Antarctica can be classified as a desert, in the interior of the continent the average annual precipitation (in *equivalent of water) is only about 50 mm (about 2 in), less than the Sahara. Along the coast, this increases, but is still only about 200 mm (8 in) in *equivalent of water. If it were to warm a bit it would snow more like it does in Greenland. It would still be way too cold for any of it to ever melt so it would retain more moisture, thereby causing the ocean levels to go down.

Re: “This is happening

Representative Marsha Blackburn, Republican of Tennessee, asserted at a hearing this year that Mr. Gore stood to benefit personally from the energy and climate policies he was urging Congress to adopt.

Mr. Gore says that he is simply putting his money where his mouth is.

“Do you think there is something wrong with being active in business in this country?” Mr. Gore said. “I am proud of it. I am proud of it.”

Re: “This is happening

"Sea ice is increasing, but it's not because Antarctica is cooling — in fact, the Southern Ocean is warming faster than any other ocean on earth."

So what your saying is a warming ocean causes more sea Ice? Would then a cooling ocean cause the sea ice to shrink?

Some models say that it is too cold to snow in some places in the Antarctic and that if it got just a couple of degrees warmer it would start collecting more moisture (like Greenland) and the oceans would subside.

Re: “This is happening

The IPCC keeps touting they have 2,500 scientists who still believe in global warming. On the other hand 31,000 scientists have signed a petition saying that they don't believe in global warming. Even without the five that you think might not be real scientist, the math works out that 12 out of 13 scientists DON'T believe in global warming.

Re: “This is happening

"But the fact is, the sun has shown a slight cooling trend " that is correct so that is why the planet has been cooling ever since 1998. The only reason the media is saying that 2010 is the warmest year ever is because they are fudging the data.
