Ever fill a glass with ice then fill it with water to the very rim. What happens to the 'water level' after all the ice is melted? Same deal with the Arctic Ocean, Ice floating in water.
Antarctica is a continent, and while it is snow covered, it is not a mass of ice like the Arctic Ocean.
Agree. Agree. Agree. Not to mention, have these fools never heard of the water cycle? I learned it in grade two.
The genuine issue with the so-called "climate change" argument, in my scientific opinion, is that like any system that has been in place and changing for millions of years, it is N O N S E N S E to look at a tiny time span (50,000 years for instance) and try to determine what it means. You have to look at the big picture, and we pathetic tiny worthless humans can't possibly do that with our (a) measly life span and our (b) inability to record information. Tiny brains (for some) don't help either.
Climate change? I ask all the self-appointed experts this exact
question to shut them up: Can you demonstrate this
is not supposed to happen, that it has not happened 200x before? Because they cannot, their argument is ended.
I sometimes use this analogy to demonstrate how nuts "climate change" is: You arrive home, and the floor in front of your favourite window is cold underfoot, does that mean the heating power of the Sun has been somehow extinguished? See how you can't possibly make a definitive assessment with no appreciation for the bigger picture.
Here's what the theorists chant "Oh my God, the Sun has burned out!" or "We need to reduce or reuse or something, we have to make a difference, we are people, we did this! We killed the Sun! We killed the Sun! WE KILLED THE SUUUUUUUUUUUN!"
Or it's been cloudy, like some of the reasoning that got us talking about this.
