    The shark is as equally dumb as those crocodiles (except that one’s wife and son).

    Yes, we do (and cue the argument in 3…2..1!)

    I predict somebody will write a long screed and end it with “Game. Set. Match.”

    What’s the shark worried about ocean levels? Looks to me like he’s not having any troubles getting around on land.

    Shark is doing pro bono work.

    I don’t deal with door-too-door solicitors (to give them a polite name)….

    Doesn’t warming increase the amount of water not at the common level, actually reducing the sea levels? That’s how it works in a universe where the laws of thermodynamics are in force. Feel free to argue against the basic laws of physics, though. Climate is a special case.

    Anybody remember a political cartoon a few years ago? About global warming, it featured rich people wondering why people were complaining about global warming – as they enjoyed their beach vacations
    - in Antarctica!

    The melting of sea ice would not affect the level of the oceans in either direction. It is the ice that is up on the land (i.e. glaciers) that is the problem, and most of Antarctic is covered in an immense ice sheet that is an AVERAGE of about 7,000 feet — over a mile — thick. When that melts, the resulting melt-water runs off the land and into the ocean, raising the levels. It is unlikely that it would ever ALL melt, but (despite the impressions gullible people got from the research ship caught in the ice recently) significant melt-off is occurring in some parts of Antarctica. See the following website for a reasonably neutral discussion of the matter:

    I assume you mean the ice melts as opposed to the water melts. Flaw in your argument – water level does not decrease when floating ice melts. Put an ice cube in a glass of water. Let it melt. The water level in the glass will stay the same, not go down. That is “simple physical reality”.

    #2, There is a huge amount of ice that is NOT floating in the water, such as glaciers. When they break off and slide into the ocean (or melt into it from land) that’s where the rise comes from, added volume. Libs can figure out that simple fact.

    Exactly. Also, another factor involved is that water reaches a maximum density at 4 degrees C (39 F). Above this temperature, the density decreases with increasing temperature. So an increase of a few degrees would cause liquid water to expand, and ocean levels to rise.

    Those land sharks are the most dangerous ones.
