    Only in your mind. These were just reported. You look hard and find a report on an anomaly in a very small area and then try to generalize it over the entire earth. Just does not work that way. The general trend over the earth is a melding down of the ice fields and caps.

    Ice fields and caps are "melding" all over the Earth ? Wow.

    I do have one question. How does melting ice create less fresh water ?

    Uh no, I provided clear evidence that the evidence for the myth has been debunked. The IPCC report was a fraud.

    I think there is no question that the ice fields are melting. However what is causing it and if it will continue is the real battle. The idea that we can somehow correct, or reverse it by our actions is totally out of touch with reality.

    Yes, man can deny it but that will never change the fact that God is in control!

    Don't you folks know that GW is only at see(?) level?:confused::D
    That's why the Everest glaciers can grow, while ice "fields" melt??!!??

    (I'll bet Crabby will validate this factoid!!??):laugh:

    So what do mountains near the equator have to do with polar ice caps melting?

    Good question, but Bill do you think that there is a way to reverse the ice caps from melting?

    Sure, we can if you believe Al Gore and GE, both of whom have deep financial interests in maintaining the theory that man is causing global warming, now climate change, on a massive scale.

    When they remove the "offical" reporting stations from heat islands such as the international airport near us, I'll start to consider the possibility man has had some minor impact on the systems that God has put into place.

    During the summer, the offical temp at the airport is almost always a few degrees higher than the temp reported from small towns in our area. The more new runways and parking lots they pave, the higher the temp rises over the years.

    Set a reporting station in the middle of WalMart parking lot on a summer day. Set another one in the middle of a large open field. Which do you think will register global warming?

    No, I think we are beyond the tipping point, whatever the cause. So do we simply say, "God's will" or do we try to mitigate the potential losses?

    As to God's will I suppose it would depend on ones theology. How do we mitigate the potential losses and what are those losses?
