Try this experiment: Take half a glass of water and mark the water level with an erasable marker or crayon.
Place one large ice cube in that half glass of water...mark the new water level.
Allow enough time for the ice to melt...now look at the water level, and notice the water is at the same level as before the ice melted!
The ice simply displaced it's own volume, there are NO RISING SEA LEVELS! Beach erosion is a NATURAL Phenomena!

When floating ice melts, does the water level rise?

http://www.planetseed.com/posted_faq/50440

Water expands when it freezes, so you might think that when it melts and reduces in size, the water level will go down. Alternatively, because part of the ice floats the water, you might think that when it melts, the water level will rise.

Neither is true, as explained by Archimedes principles.

When an ice cube (or an iceberg, which is a big ice cube) floats in water, then by definition the weight of the ice cube is exactly equal to the buoyancy force, which is equal to the weight of the displaced water.

When the ice cube melts, its volume changes, but its weight is conserved (law of the conservation of mass). So the melted water from the ice cube has exactly the same weight as the water that was displaced by the ice cube when it was frozen -- therefore the volume of melted water fits exactly in the previously displaced volume -- and the water level stays the same.

Note that this argument applies only if the ice cube is made of the same water as the water that it is floating in. This is true, for example, with the Arctic ice pack, which is made of frozen sea water. However, it is not true for Antarctic icebergs, which are blocks of fresh-water ice from the continent that are floating in salt-water sea. In this case, we must take into account that the salt water is denser than the fresh water. The fresh-water iceberg still weighs as much as the weight of the displaced salt water, but because of the difference in density, the volume of melted fresh water will be slightly greater than the displaced volume of salt water -- so when the iceberg melts, the water level will rise, although the difference is very small.

If the ice is melting due to a rise in temperature of the water, then the water level might rise because of thermal expansion - related to, but not because of, the ice melting.

If the ice was totally or partly supported on the bottom of the vessel (or sea), then when it melts the water level will certainly rise. In the limit, if there was no water in the vessel at the start of the experiment, there clearly will be at the end, and it is obvious the water level has risen. This is a key problem resulting from global warming – melting ice that was covering land areas such as Antarctica and Greenland is adding to sea levels.

How much of the earths surface is covered by water?
How much covered by land actually has significant glaciers?
Not enough to cause "Global Change"!
About those rising sea levels: they have been rising for 18,000 years, and there is no evidence that the current rate of rise is affected by temperature; 20th-century data show no acceleration.

all water covers the earth surface, or core. That isn't the problem. The problem is the geographical displacement of that water and those people living on the coastal plains.

it isn't just significant glaciers. it's all those glaciers. greenland is no longer covered yearly in snow. it's actually farming/cultivating some of it's own. Hay for it's livestock, that it used to import.

It is all being displaced. It's the amt of water displaced constantly from one place to another. The water has to reach an equilibrium between what is melting at the poles and in the mountains and what is already in the oceans. For instance the great lakes are drying up because of displacement in weather patterns. The on going drought in the midwest.

This is where you're confused. It is the increase of carbon emissions in the atmosphere that is creating a rise in temps; which creates a change in the weather patterns. Carbon traps heat; just like a thermal blanket traps it. With the melting of the snow methane is being released at an even greater rate.

Every couple of days, I will have a person complain to me that I’m too aggressive or mean. I’m told,“You catch more flies with honey.”“Why do you belittle conservatives?”“You won’t change their minds that way.”
We didn’t win the 2012 election by being nice and trying to compromise. We won by making sure the country knew what it is that Republicans truly believe:
Rape is not rape if the woman gets pregnant. Or if she didn’t fight hard enough. Or if she was wearing sexy clothes.
Women who use birth control are sluts and whores.
Black people on food stamps are lazy.
Muslims are all terrorists.
Homosexuals are just like pedophiles.
Evolution is lies from the pit of hell.
This is who they’ve allowed themselves to become and we should try and reason with these people? I don’t think so. Rather, we should hold them up for the public to see and ridicule.
Moderate conservatives should be shamed for their continued support of the GOP. Independents should be horrified by the bile that spews forth from the right. And just to reiterate: THERE IS NO EQUIVALENT ON THE LEFT. Liberals do not actually say,“we love abortion!” or that Christianity should be banned and Sharia law instituted. The craziest fringe of the left says that we shouldn’t eat meat and all guns should be outlawed. When was the last time a liberal lawmaker even jokingly tried to pass a bill like that? For god’s sake, one Republican suggested that the law should be changed so abortion doctors could be legally murdered! These are disturbed people trapped in an echo chamber that only drives them further to the fringes of the right. They just lost an election that they had every opportunity to win. Why? Because they opened their mouths and the public heard what they stand for. The public recoiled from their extremism. What has the GOP and the right wing media decided to do? Double down on the extremism.
So, no, I won’t be catching more flies with honey. I will continue to show others the intellectual and moral vacuum that exists in the Fox News bubble. I will continue to heap scorn on them and treat them like the sick joke they are. I will arm other liberals with the knowledge of how to tear conservative “facts” apart like wet tissue paper. I will show independents and moderates the ugliness that underlies the modern conservative movement. Being polite and “taking the higher road” got us George W. Bush and 8 years of global bloodshed and economic ruin. If you think I’m only “sinking to their level” and I should be more accommodating maybe conservatives aren’t the only ones incapable of learning from their mistakes.
I took this from the blog Proud To Be A Filthy Liberal Scum. Spot on.
I'm not gonna get caught up in an endless exchange of useless words, hoss, but you're full of shit. Purely, and simply, that's the bottom line. You actually believe that crap. Well, if you choose to spend you life wallowing in ignorance, have at it. I'll pray for you. Have a nice day!

Just cause its fun to take jabs at republicans here.... I'm gonna throw this out there and let you all do everything you can to avoid answering it... It's what you tools do best!

Now try to keep up and stay on subject here.

How many jobs has those tax breaks for the wealthy given us?? And please remember, you idiots go on and on about how Obama has such high unemployment rates. How could this possibly be a good plan to give people who don't even create jobs huge tax breaks??

What are you idiots smoking??

On another note, seems like the Repubs are tossing out Teabaggers left and right.... It's a clear message that GE tea party was a flash in the pan! Goooood riddance!!

I don't believe the republican pparty will last much longer. You dolts will have to reinvent yourselves once again and try to make idiots such as yourself believe that they are actually for the working class (as they go on and on and steal your retirement)

Btw..... Have I mentioned Karl Rove and dick Morris were canned at fox? LMAO That's just funny to me!

There are no absolutes in reality because in reality change is constant.

All theories are questionable in science.

Evolution is a theory because involution is it's opposite reaction.

Institutionalized science doesn't make absolute statements. This is another of your beliefs being exposed.
