Yep, much of it is melting sea ice. Which will make no difference in sea level. hence the reason why you had the idea of thermal expansion tried.
Yes do-gooder "Global Warming" people forget that ice shrinks when it melts.

There is no end to your stupid. You need to go away your scarring the children of the World. You will soon be the blame of record drop outs. The higher education that you boast about is making education a waste of time. My bad you couldn't be stupid that would take some thinking which you lack. See why you are Less than a Box of Rocks?

Of course they do or ignore it. They also ignore the fact that the floating ice displaces the same amount of water as contained in the ice.

This is where I joined this discussion back in 2006.

Well now that you paid attention to first grade science class will you continue your education? Please think hard you could be on a rule of factual information.

Yada yada. Still trying to understand science through religion and politics, Tina? Maybe you should do a Google search on the Greenland ice sheet? Nah, I didn't think so. Never mind.
Don't you have that stack of Harlequin romances to read or something?

The Less than a Box of Rocks AKA "tina" can't read. It is a product of the one child left behind program.

Actually I did and discovered that when you do the actual math and discovered that if the entire ice sheet was to melt tomarrow that the oceans would only rise a few millimeters at most.

Maybe you should actually spend a little time doing the calculations instead of reading the tittlating propaganda that always seems to predict the end of the world is just around the corner.

Or read a few of those Harlequin romances, I bet you like some of the sex scenes.

So why can't you answer that eight grade question. I bet there is someone else posting for you today.

Which is saying that you are trying to understand science through your religion and politics instead of science and math.

Some estimate that the melting of the Greenland ice sheet could raise sea levels as much as 6 to 7 meters - or perhaps you'd prefer to say ONLY 6,000 to 7,000 millimeters. As well, unless your calculations come from FOX news pundits or Discovery Institute young Earthers one has to consider that the melting of that one ice sheet is not be the only land mass on the globe where ancient ice is melting.

Mr. Muller
Global warming is real. Perhaps our results will help cool this portion of the climate debate. How much of the warming is due to humans and what will be the likely effects? We made no independent assessment of that.

See the experts don't know

Obama hasn't even taken office yet and already the environment is suffering the negative effects. I wonder how much worse things will get under Obama's regime? Can our fragile world survive four years of this man's leadership?
Ooohh, I just don't know, I am so afraid of the future, Oh the humanity! Stay afraid my friend, stay afraid....

Do you care to post the equation? Considering you did the "math" and all....

It doesn't shrink professor, it's mass remains constant. Now take that mass, now a liquid, and pour it into another container already containing liquid and guess what, it's level rises. Ta-daaa, MAGIC! BTW, I believe I learned that in Jr. High science.

You are requiring an empty chair that is Less than s Box of Rocks AKA "tina"to answer a first grade question. It thinks that having a bowel movement counts as a biology class.

truthist wrote:

For singing till his heaven fills, 65
’T is love of earth that he instils,
And ever winging up and up,
Our valley is his golden cup,
And he the wine which overflows
To lift us with him as he goes: 70
The woods and brooks, the sheep and kine
He is, the hills, the human line,
The meadows green, the fallows brown,
The dreams of labor in the town;
He sings the sap, the quicken’d veins; 75
The wedding song of sun and rains
He is, the dance of children, thanks
Of sowers, shout of primrose-banks,
And eye of violets while they breathe;
All these the circling song will wreathe,
And you shall hear the herb and tree,
The better heart of men shall see,
Shall feel celestially, as long
As you crave nothing save the song

From The Lark Ascending by George Meredith (1828–1909)

Did not know this poem as I began reading it. As I continued reading, I began thinking of Ralph Vaughn Williams' Romance for violin & orchestra,'The Lark Ascending'. & lo, completing the read, the title & author struck me in the eyes! Do you know if RVW was inspired to write his music by the poem?

Could have??? I chose it for the music. You felt the music in the words. A complete circle. Isn't this beautiful?

Thanks for sharing your ideas :)

Update:
litesong continues:
Failed to tell truthist how much RVW music means to me, & in particular the Lark Ascending.
Some areas around the Salish Sea & Puget Sound must be a bit similar to England. Traveling in the Salish Sea river bottomlands, I often listen to the RVW symphonies, concertos & tone poems, as well as the Lark Ascending. Pretend to walk with RVW, for he was a long distance walker & hiker, often moving from one township to another, to pick up country melodies from people he met, that he might transform into a symphonic interlude.

In the Pacific Northwest, we have the western Meadowlark, similar to the eastern Meadowlark, but with an exquisitely present, three dimensional, yet plaintive, short-phrased, but endearing trill of notes. Walking the fields in the vicinity of Meadowlarks, I often risk getting closer to them, to hear their clear song, evermore clearer. Hiding easily in the tall grasses, the Meadowlarks never-the-less flush with little cause, not letting me get very near, at all. Bursting from the grasses, they rise quickly on hundreds of blurring wings. Unlike the violin melody tho, they do not rise to the high sky, but clear my head by five or six body lengths & whisk away to other parts of the green grassy fields.
But imagining the violin music, I also imagine one Meadowlark, striking out for the high sky. Rising out of the lowlands, above short & tall trees alike, leveling & circling like the melodies, alternately wistful & thrumming energies. The music paints circling views of river, hill, dale & even unEnglish-like mountains in the background. Then upward once again...... rising..... rising above hill & hills more than hills.... always rising to match the heights of those more distant mountains & the music.... up, up & tiny, so tiny. With the last fading strains of music in the highest register of strings, the Meadowlark....... disappears from sight.... so very very high.
//////////
\\\\\\\\\\
Listen to the Lark Ascending, clear tones that define the word soaring, & elegance & bursting life.
