What complete garbage. The sea levels are rising because the Polar caps are melting, right? WRONG. Water expands when it FREEZES, contracts when it thaws. You can see this for yourself by putting a bottle of your favorite springwater in the freezer at home. This is more left wing liberal scare tactic GARBAGE.

Junk Science...What about the current polar thickening (i.e at a faster rate than the oppposite one melting).

Global warming is now understood to be a "cyclical" event and as of late, we now know we how very little that we do know about global warming.

Funny, but when considering other global events such as plate tectonics, multiple ice ages, and Milankovitch cycles - a few inches of seal level rise is not that big of a deal.

For some strange reason I believe Earth and her numerous inhabitants will be here for quite some time...

This article may have just been something to put in the paper that is actually cool to read. SICK & TIRED of all these photos of ugly, mean THUGS. This is actually refreshing. And yeah, I knew it, too. Land masses have a tendency to change about.

Wait, didn't you guys hear? We're going to be entering another ice age according to some climatologists. That means there's actually going to be LESS swamp land on the Peninsula, and people will be moving here from the Northeast to escape the glaciers. Real estate here will fetch you a nice profit. BUY NOW!!!

I am not arguing the veracity of the article because I wonder where they got the 27 inch rise from but Blackhat you are way off the mark. If you have ice under water and it melts it makes no change in the level of the water but if the ice is above the water, as it is on the South Pole and Greenland, etc., when it melts it is additional water that was not there to start thus causing a rise in the water level. Once the ice caps start to melt the process actually speeds up because you are exposing dark water to the sun, which it wasn't before, and the sun rays heats up the water faster causing faster melting of the ice caps around it. It is basic science no matter if you believe in man-made global warming or not.

The polar ice caps are on water not land - correct? They can melt all they want - it won't cause the sea level to rise. Put a bunch of ice in a glass, then fill it to the top with water - watch the ice melt - the water does not spill over the top of the glass - even if the ice cubes are above the glass.
By the way we will all be dead anyway.
