Scientists blame global warming for Antarctica ice shelf collapse

There are 130 comments on the www.earthtimes.org story from Mar 26, 2008, titled Scientists blame global warming for Antarctica ice shelf collapse. In it, www.earthtimes.org reports that:

Scientists Tuesday are blaming global warming for the collapse of a giant slab off Antarctica's Wilkins Ice Shelf. Looking at NASA satellite images a glaciologist at the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) at the University of Colorado at Boulder noticed part of the Wilkins ice shelf disintegrating on February 28, with a large iceberg measuring 41 kilometres by 2.4 kilometres fell from the south-western front of the ice shelf.

I suspect that it has more to do with what YOu are smoking. As to the claims of CO2 reductions while the economy increased, that gets into the are of how do you measure the *real* economy. A lot of money changed hands from the credit crisis that did NOT create real goods. And given the Bush regimes manipulation ( aka 'reeducation') of Chinas emissions I don't trust U.S. government claims in any form.
That's just more proof of your rabid partisan blinders.

I'm not a Bush backer but I will give credit where due. The USA has actually reduced the rate of emissions more, since 2001, than most of the Kyoto signatories.

Didn't people believe at one time the earth was flat? Global warming is liberal nonscience.
The flat-earth people were the ones who did not want to change, did not want to accept new ideas. Global warming is a relatively new concept, so the flat-earth people should be equated with conservatives and deniers -- those who don't want to accept new possibilities. You see, Columbus and the round-earth people were uber-Liberals.

Remember, the Science is settled. All the variables combined which affect global warming do not have as much influence as the air bourne CO2 from the burning of carbon based fuel ...so it is written.

Which scientists and who are they! The fact is that there "aren't any! This is just another Governmental leftist liberal political science "stunt"! They tried the same thing in 1970 with Global Cooling and Paul Ehrlick, the NOAA, NASA and the 34 National Academy of scientists claiming that the planet was going to freeze over by the year 2000 and that England would be unihabitable. Pseudoscience Global Cooling THEN in the 20th century, Pseudoscience Global Warming NOW in the 21st century. Same senario, same slogan "We must act now"..settled science...there is no debate"! Ah yes, and the same rhetoric "If we don't first succeed try and lie again!!!!

Yes, of course you make many valid points but... they do not address the fact (main point) that there ARE climate scientists, political scientists, and others who want the public to believe in A/OACDDCGCD.

...and, one would think, 91 newly discovered volcanoes under the Antarctic may have a significant influence on the opinions of global warming climate scientists or Global Warming political scientists.

...if objective science mattered to them.

No global warming threatens many types of disasters, including storms, heat waves, floods, and droughts. Droughts affect agriculture which is the food supply. Neither starvation nor drowning are pleasant ways to go.

OMG!
