Ice does NOT RAISE THE WATER LEVEL. LOL

Ice is neutrally boyant! 10% of an iceberg is above sea level. 90 below. The displacement is the same regardless of what form H20 takes. Come on! This is basic physics!!!

Ice that is on land, say Greenland or Antarctica and melts does. Basic physics.

We've had this discussion about ice. You are wrong.

Even un-melted ice has mass, which DOES make water rise. Drop an ice cube in a glass...
The issue is not the difference between solid and liquid, the issue is this ice was not part of the oceans, and now it is.

And it's all a question of physics...

This thread has grown rather large and seems to have split pretty much into two main themes: That of climate denial and denial of all physics and science, and that of reporting what is actually happening and what we can positively do.

Hence two threads to continue the argument/discussion:


Climate Change, 'Greenhouse' effects: DENIAL


Climate Change, 'Greenhouse' effects: Solutions


Positive comments welcomed!

We may yet save our planet from ourselves...

All on our only planet,
Martin
