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

I'm reminded of an experiment we did in our 6th grade science class where an ice cube was allowed to melt in a full glass of water. Did the water level rise as the ice melted, and spill over the side of the glass? No it didn't.

I dunno, Jay Wye, when they show the ice cascading off the glaciers on TV, it's falling into water, not onto land. Just sayin'

Uh,Greenland Ice is NOT in the ocean,it's on land. Same for Antartica.

Don't take this to be that I support or believe in AGW,I don't.
the Earth warms and cools in cycles,and it's mostly solar input that affects that.
and volcanoes.

Absolutely right. We did the same thing at my school.

The claim that melting ice is causing the NORMAL fluctuations in th polar ice violates real science.

I've said the same things in other forums but got ridiculed for talking about it.

yep the ice is already in the ocean.... displacing its volume already.... the only rise in sea level will be what melts thats above ground, which is a much smaller number than is predicted if you add the volume of ice to the current ocean levels. Even if you account for the small difference in volume of density from ice to water. Its ok liberal women and minorities dont go to 6th grade... they go to a 6th grade level day care; thats the problem

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...
