First off, I read this story this morning that discusses a study that has lowered projected temperature increases if nothing is done about global warming.
Second, in regards to the whole sea level rising thing. I realize I’m not a scientist, but I do know some basic things. When you have a glass of ice and water, when all the ice melts, the water level stays the same. It has something to do with the fact that when water freezes, it expands. Then, when it melts, the volume is lower. You know, its how ice makes potholes in the road. So how does the melting of the ice caps cause ocean level rises?
