    Last night I filled a big gulp cup with ice and topped it up with water.
    When I awoke I had a pond in the bedroom.
    No. I was wearing my diaper !

    It's not the floating ice that's the problem

    You called me to this thread, so I came and I commented. I would not have come into a global warming thread because I do not know a whole lot about it. I give my trust to the scientists and the thermometers world wide that agree the planet is warming rapidly, the ice is melting and (perhaps entirely coincidentally?) there is flooding now in low lying coastal areas where that was only seen before during extreme high tides.

    I don't understand why the right needs to contradict and deny that. Do ALL of you have stock in BP? What on earth is your problem with doing what's necessary to limit C02 emissions? We have noggins for a reason. Try using yours.

    Your uncle would be gay?

    I can pretty much guarantee the land ice will never melt completely. If the current warming trend continues I can pretty much guarantee that some will melt and sea level will rise. How much, who knows?

    It won't rise high enough to prevent Obama from enjoying his new oceanfront property.
