More Settled Science: Wrong about Ice Melt in Greenland, Sea-Rise

Greenland and Antarctica are the only two locations. 576,000 Square Miles at one mile thick is an area measuring around 800miles by 720 miles. Greenland is larger than that, and Antarctica is larger still. While the ice is often stated to be a mile thick in both places, it is a mile thick at most. In most places, the ice is much shallower, with mountains rising above the level of the ice in both places. When in the past ALL the ice has melted from both land masses, the oceans were about 30 feet higher than they are today. That's the highest it can go. We are already living in a world where most of the ice has melted, and we have been for the last 12,000 years. For comparison purposes, the highest natural point in Florida is 30 feet ASL

I live in Orlando.

IIRC,the highest point in Florida is 500 ft above sea level.

New research published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences tends to now show that ice melt estimates previously calculated for Greenland have not significantly accelerated- as has been previously postulated- nor has the melt contributed in a meaningful way to the rise of sea levels.

Recently, much of the destruction on the east coast as a consequence of Super-Mega-Hurricane Sandy Gore was blamed on the rise in sea-levels, which have been blamed on…drum roll…global warming.

The newest revelation, amongst many in the last several years that have muffled the global warming chants of  “settled science, settled...
