    doesnt ice always flow because of gravity? are we supposed to be alarmed? did we know what the flow rate was before or are we making predictions on short term observations based on a new technology?

    reminds me of how sea level rise doubled at the exact moment that we started measuring by satellite. while it may be true it sure seems improbable, at least to me.

    Ice core samples show wild fluctuations in temperature in the last geological age. Why not let China worry about while we get our fiscal act together?

    The point is that this is information that we did not have before. If you don't like that information, it fails to make it any less valid.

    If some climatologist stuck a thermometer up a Craibou's ass, then would have "information that we did not have before." Would that support the bogus theory of manmade global warming? Not a bit.


    Ice has always flowed in Antartica. The map proves absolutely nothing about global warming.

    I bet Old Rock still believes polar bear numbers are shrinking because 'peer review' said so. those pesky Inuits dont know what they're talking about.

    Ah yes the "study it just to be studying it and slap a global warming badge on it when we need money" ploy... LOL
