"Just because you see pictures of glaciers falling into the ocean doesn't mean anything bad is happening. This is something that happens all the time. It's part of the natural cycle of things. We know from measurements that glaciers have been melting for 200 years at least. So it's certainly long before human activities could have caused it. What we also know, going back 4,000 years, is that the glaciers were actually a lot smaller. They actually grew in the meantime. So it seems to be some sort of cyclical process. They grow and shrink and there's no particular reason for being worried just because they're shrinking at the moment." -- Freeman Dyson, physicist, September 2007
Science Daily: Antarctic Glacier Thinning At Alarming Rate
ScienceDaily (Aug. 15, 2009) — The thinning of a gigantic glacier in Antarctica is accelerating, scientists report. The Pine Island Glacier in West Antarctica, which is around twice the size of Scotland, is losing ice four times as fast as it was a decade years ago.I hope the whole continent melts.
And global warming has been refuted once again. If global warming were taking place (don't worry it's not) the tundra treeline would advance. That's not happening, therefore there is no global warming: Unexpected Relationship Between Climate Warming And Advancing Treelines.
ScienceDaily (Aug. 14, 2009) — A new study reveals that treelines are not responding to climate warming as expected.Carbon dioxide, the life-giving chemical compound that plants require for photosynthesis, is less than 00.038% of the Earth's atmosphere. Even if you doubled, tripled, or quadrupled (good luck with that) the total amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere (total carbon dioxide not anthropogenic) the net effect on global temperature would be zero.
