    ..that it is mentioned just once in over 80 speeches so far at the DNC. Outside of a few internet die-hards needlessly panicking over see ice in the arctic the non-issue seems to be going the way of Cap mad Trade everywhere. Buh-bye.

    And the ice just keeps stacking up in the Antarctic where, of course, the vast majority of planet's fresh water is stored. See, ice. It looks like Cap mad Trade may be on it's way out.

    Without Man-Caused Global Warming -- none of their energy policy would make sense and they could not continue their efforts to force us to live like Hobbits..

    Wind and solar would be hobby kits and EVs and squiggly bulbs would be history questions on Jeopardy.
    It justifies MASSIVE govt intervention in science, consumption and the markets. That's why it's headlined.

    Same reason they need ignorance, poverty and Govt dependence..

    Er, no. The Antarctic is losing mucho ice mass. You get the most basic facts totally wrong. But that's a given. If someone understands logic and science, they don't become a denialist.

    However, as flac shows, if someone falls for every idiot right-wing conspiracy theory that they're told to fall for, they do become a denialist. Denialism has zero to do with science, and is entirely a political cult.

    LOL, no. The western antarctic has lost some ice. The eastern antarctic ice sheet which is huge in comparison is and has been gaining mass. By the way it is also the largest ice sheet in the world by far. So you see (as usual) you are full of manure.

    Uh oh, you global warming guys are full of shit (again).

    OK, fellow, you are dealing with a scientific subject. That requires more than just flap-yap to have any validity. You do it like this.

    The Antarctic is losing gigatons of ice every year. And the rate is increasing.

    A chip off the old ice block

    Changes in the mass of Antarctica as revealed by variations in gravity measured by the twin GRACE satellites. Between 2002 and 2009, the continent has lost about 100 cubic kilometers annually which together with ice lost from Greenland and other glaciated areas, has led to upward revision of sea level rise from around 2.1mm/year to 3.3mm/year.

    ..and the HUGE eastern antarctic ice pack just keeps getting bigger and growing colder, just as it has for many years.

    The largest ice pack in the world is growing larger and getting colder. See ice.
