Proof that "ratdownthemiddle", "middleofthedownwronggull y" is a rabid racist: it never got so mad as when it defended racists. & now, "ratdownthemiddle", "middleofthedownwronggull y" is also a proud threatener.

Here's a nice lil article on how the Statue of Liberty might be at risk with global warming. Look on the bright side, you can make New York into the new Venice while still telling us it's not happening.

Too funny. In 2000 years, millions of people will lose their homes. I've already put that reminder on my 4014 calendar. Great scientific article. Lol.

I don't think the 70 year old homes in Detroit will make it to the year 3014 unless they repaint in 2850.

Be cautious about relying on the temperature numbers from 100 years ago or back in 1914. My great-grandfather was part of the crew that collected that data and he said the thermometers were particularly unreliable and often broken. He and his co-workers would sometimes just make a good guess at the figures, but hardly precise. By the way, Grandpa thought William Howard Taft was a much better president than Woodrow Wilson.
It must be a family characteristic. Most folks of that age were responsible and took pride in their work.

Correction:
It is obvious I have no education in non-scientific oil, energy, business & re-pubic-lick-un boardroom propaganda PEE-R AGW denial diatribe, which had its beginnings in smoking denial campaigns, as science linked smoking to cancer. Of course, only slimy touched & touchy toxic topix AGW deniers swill at the PEE-R trough.

Does science "believe" evolution is proven?
Is smoking "believed" by science to cause cancer and has it been proven by science?
Does science "believe" comet hits WILL be inevitable and proven to be?
Is science "believing" a CO2 climate crisis proven?
Prove it.
Prove that science "believes" as much as you remaining "believers" are "believing" a crisis WILL happen.

Since "me me me getting mine in the 69 position" has no science, chemistry, astronomy, physics, algebra or pre-calc in its poorly (or non-) earned hi skule DEE-plooomaa, it has no science or mathematics degrees in a non-existent teaching certificate. Any directed(biased) supposedly rhetorical questions it asks are worthless for the advancement of science education.

All that you have proven is that you have no understanding of science. First, all the ice at the poles would not need to melt but if enough melts, the ocean conveyor belt would be upset and feedbacks would likely cause the poles to warm much quicker(As a matter of fact, the Arctic is warming more quickly than the rest of the Earth today). Second, if the ice is floating in the ocean, it always displaces water equal to its mass. If it is on land, melting would absolutely add to the ocean level. Eustatic sea floor changes are a factor in sea levels. However, as ice melts over broad areas of land it causes eustatic rebound. The result of this will be subsidence in other areas particularly the ocean floor since it covers around 2/3 of the planet. Lastly, it is apparent that you do not understand the concept of greenhouse gases. Most of the energy we receive from the sun is of the shorter
wave variety which is largely unaffected by ghg's. However when this shorter wave energy is absorbed by the Earth it is remitted as longer waver or IR energy which is trapped by the gases and escapes the Earth at a slower rate causing a higher temper equilibrium..
It would behoove you to gain a better understanding of what you are blatering about if you want to be taken seriously.
BTW, the temperature of the Earth has risen about 1.5 deg Fahrenheit over the past 100 years, not .15. It is certain that this has caused much melting of glacial ice and ice sheets throughout the world.
Question: What is the size if the land mass at the arctic?
Question: Are you SURE "As a matter of fact, the Arctic is warming more quickly than the rest of the Earth today"?
Question: Sources on trapped GHGs?'Cause NASA ain't seen it.
Question: With all this "trapped" heat from "shorter wave energy is absorbed by the Earth it is remitted as longer waver or IR energy" why we got record snow in the south? Great Lakes almost frozen over? No bitchin' at the Chinese for their contributions to this trapped heat?

Pfft! Grant money grubber.

your turn!! but we already know you're a confirmed liar......so just save the bandwidth, shirley.
besides......your posts suggest that you haven't made it to high school yet.
Posting anonymously and having a pissing mach over who is more educated is pointless because we can makeup whatever accolades we want.

& Niagra frozen over. Glad you point out some of the effects of AGW enhanced warm fronts that powerfully push to the North Pole region & shove cold Arctic airs to Canada, the U.S. & many other populated southern regions. Yes, as the populated regions freeze from AGW enhanced warm fronts shoving all the cold south, the NP region, itself, is warmed to as high as 16degC(29degF) over normal for the last 4-5 months.
