The problem with all the articles is people, ESPECIALLY politicians, only read the articles that further their particular cause. Yes, there is some ice melt occuring. BUT, if anyone would bother to read other articles you will find that ice is reforming in other places, and starting to form where it never did before. The Earth is constantly, GRADUALLY changing and has been doing so since Day One. All these changes we are seeing are NATURAL changes, and they will continue long after our great-great-grandchildren are dead of old age. No amount of legislation from any country or even a group of countries is going to change that.
