Interesting. I know this is one of the big things that is happening that a lot of global warming people are point to to prove there theory. But I look likes global warming might not be the only culprit in the Greenland ice sheet melting. Now don't get me wrong I not against the theory of global warming. But I like to make sure that all things are considered when making the argument for or against a theory.

Isn't Bush in favor of magma?

No, wait. His valet drives a Mazda.

But hey. It's close enough for John Conyers to look into.

I wouldn’t say it is one of the “big things” as it seems to be “one of many things”. Since science is looking into it, it will either show how it contributes to the melting ice or not.

I don’t see global climate change as a flimsy house of cards like many anti-climate change folks do, when you show one piece of evidence is faulty, it doesn’t negate the whole conclusion that is based on many more independent factors. Thanks for the info.

I look at it as just another sign of how much more there is to know. Alarmist use a lot of climate model results to predict doom, yet in those models if you adjust a variable it has a domino effect on other variables.

I'm more concerned about an asteroid or a large series of volcanic eruptions around the ring of fire than I am about global warming. Even if the global warming boogeyman is hiding in our closet, there is nothing we could do to stop it. Its totally contradictory to think that we can control the temperature.

I read in the grocery store that microwave radiation coming from Mars was helping to melt the Greenland ice cap, and that fully cooked polar bear flank steaks are being encountered in unlikely places in the interior.

Also, the earth's magnetic field has dropped 10 percent over the last 150 years...
