    If that huge shelf of ice in Antarctica falls into the ocean, it could raise sea level 10 feet in some places.

    From Wiki:

    Between 1870 and 2004, global average sea levels rose 17 cm (6.7 in).5 From 1950 to 2009, measurements show an average annual rise in sea level of 1.7 ± 0.3 mm with satellite data showing a rise of 3.3 ± 0.4 mm from 1993 to 2009,6 a faster rate of increase than previously estimated.7 It is unclear whether the increased rate reflects an increase in the underlying long-term trend.8

    By that estimate I will have water front property in about 150 years. I currently live at 100 ft above sea level and the rate was 1/8 inch a year. But as the article goes on to say they really dont know what is going to happen in the future they only have data from the past. Good indicator but still just how far back do you want to look for a trend and how long of a cycle will you find and where are we “now” in any cycle.

    Hey, we should be getting away from fossil fuels dependence. While it is the most abundant and the most “accessible” and the most “adaptable” energy source today. It will not supply the energy needed in the future.

    How can we “go where no man has gone before” if we have to fire up the V-8 to get there?

    Onguard: “high land” in Florida IS a pretty funny joke! 345 feet above sea level! Having lived over 4,000 feet most of my life, while in the Army, saw the sign for the first time and we all (westerners) laughed hysterically!

    Hey, let’s face it. If it is in the news it must be right. After all, I have never heard of the news being wrong. Ha, Ha, Ha! Some studies indicate possible global warming, while others indicate possible global cooling. Yet, all you hear about are the ones showing a global warming. That is science fiction for you.

    Really doc? You don’t read all the latest publications?

    Not that I agree or disagree but here is one article.

    @Ellen Gwynne

    Wait. You are dismissing Dr. Page because his article appears in an Arizona newspaper. My, how open minded you are.

    So you obviously did not read the paper. Try this one.

    Or this one:

    Or this:

    But no worries. It does not dispute the “fact” of “Global climate change” just doesn’t support the global warming paradigm…..LOL

    Check out Dr. Norman Page on Linked-In, if you’re curious.

    well the point I was making is that there are scientist that do studies and present them for your review that present an alternative view point. What that tells me is that there is some evidence that not all is lost and we are not going to begin burning up just yet. Plus there is the possibility that the cycle may go the other way as well with evidence to support that idea. I refuse to be close minded on the subject (please remember earlier posts) and like to consider all opinions. Even YOU oh great one can be wrong.

    As to the authors of the articles I presented?

    Officials of the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan and the Riken research foundation

    scientists from the US Solar Observatory and the US Air Force Research Laboratory

    and Dr. Page who is a geologist working in the oil industry.

    Not the only ones by a long shot.

    Sorry, but my knowledge of you – scant s it is – renders your opinion suspect.

    As I read your links, the authors are none of those that you list — the articles refer to those people, but they aren’t the authors. That makes a difference.

    …that proves he’s not in anyone’s pocket. He doesn’t depend on grants.
