More than 2 trillion tons of land ice in Greenland, Antarctica and Alaska have melted since 2003, according to new NASA satellite data that show the latest signs of what scientists say is global warming.

More than half of the loss of landlocked ice in the past five years has occurred in Greenland, based on measurements of ice weight by NASA's GRACE satellite, said NASA geophysicist Scott Luthcke. The water melting from Greenland in the past five years would fill up about 11 Chesapeake Bays, he said, and the Greenland melt seems to be accelerating.


A two page report at the link, along with some stupid comments. I love those people who have no idea just how ignorant they are.

Also: Climate Warming

Mountains of ice invade beachfront Michigan homes

High winds shoved ice into lakeside homes in Linwood, Michigan. iReporter Heath Bobick talked to HLN from the scene.
