    like now, you just submitted evidence of warming. I get how this is going.

    Don't tell me. Do something, Catch your hair on fire and shout it is getting hot and you refuse to take it any longer.

    I live 27 ft above sea level and tell you the ocean is a long ways from getting me. i don't care.

    Melting of floating ice is not the reason for sea levels to rise but the cause of floating ice to melt is due to rising air temperature and rising sea temperature. As the floating ice melts the temperature of the sea will begin to rise causing land based ice such as glaciers bordering the sea to melt faster which will cause sea levels to rise. Antarctica is composed of land based glaciers bordering the sea.

    This can all be proven in a simple experiment at home using cubes of ice and a glass of water and a little ingenuity.

    I have a number of factual problems with this observation. First, it assumes that we in fact know that there was "no ice on the planet' which frankly we don't. We simply don't know whether this is true, whether the drift of the continents was capable of producing a record of non land ice at the poles. Can't be done. So, yes, the temps during the dinosaur age likely were higher. But we cannot know whether there was ice on the poles or the planet at the same time.

    Maybe you should read the research these claims are based on before claiming its false.

    So what is your theory for explaining sea level rise in the past? If melting ice had no contribution, which the vast majority of evidence supports, then what was it?

    Yeah, who cares of tens of trillions of dollars worth of economic value and hundreds of millions of people live within reach of sea level rise as long as Mr. Robert keeps his head above water.

    You will not lay a guilt trip on me. I created this thread to get decent discussion on this topic going. It got derailed by Democrats and the woman from Australia. My hope was the public would calm down and stop imagining they are about to be covered in sea water. That crap more than annoys me, it is a pack of lies.

    Look, feel that way all you want to. You will not cause me to live in fear merely because you live in fear.

    Daily the temperature ranges far more than the threats you guys dream up. It will not matter at all. Dr. Lindzen warned us all it is a lot of hot air over little. The alarm is cooked up.

    It's statements like these that lead me to believe there is still a big misunderstanding about what global warming is and what it isn't. At any rate I find irony in this statement because global warming is actually reducing the daily temperature range.

    Earth warmed over and over without me or you. I am not going to wallow in fear.

    Let me clarify for the alarmists here

    What was it like for you when there was snow all around you? What if i told you that when it heated up 2 more degrees, in the dead of a bitter cold winter, you would fry?

    That is alarm.

    I refuse to engage in your game of alarm.

    So you survived winter and it's snow did you?

    Are you sorry i did not try to rattle you by trying to alarm you?

    I could have told you that your melting snow would cover up Florida or New York City. But I never did.

    i don't plant seeds of fear into people's heads like that.

    Will you please stop doing it to the public?

    That's you making up crazy stories, being we don't say anything like that.

    You can't argue against what we say, and you're not honest enough to admit that, so you constantly fake stories about what we supposedly say.

    A discussion implies that others can disagree with the points raised

    But there was always a cause for that warming

    What is the current cause of warming - the magic climate change fairy??

    According to you, you are supposed to be the expert. All I know is the fear mongers will not trap me.
