Thanks for posting that, DO.g's...the discussions following the graph are pretty interesting reading, too.

[/url]

A prominent Antarctic scientist says a large ice shelf is disintegrating much faster than he predicted. In fact, it’s “hanging by a thread,” according to David Vaughan of the British Antarctic Survey. The concern over melting ice shelves has to do with the tremendous amount of water they store. The more they melt, the more sea level rises.

BBC:
Professor David Vaughan of BAS said: “Wilkins is the largest ice shelf on the Antarctic Peninsula yet to be threatened.

“I didn’t expect to see things happen this quickly. The ice shelf is hanging by a thread - we’ll know in the next few days or weeks what its fate will be.”

I am highly skeptical about taking a photo, from outer space, that is absolutely identical except for the ice though taken about 28 years apart.


As a photographer, I know how hard it is is to precisely mimic a photo taken even a day apart.



As for global warming, I was alarmed until more recently. The past year has had more global cooling than warming so I am going to relax for a bit.

Plenty of other things to concern myself about. Things that are getting worse, not better. Speaking of which...why can't we get rid of the chimp and his dark lord?

That's what happens when you don't know the difference between weather and climate.
