    I quoted a story in the Guardian, a well known journal for committed Leftists, or those who should be committed. They seem to find the story credible so perhaps you should pass your 'grad' story along to them.
    It was run on Fox also. Should Fox be committed as well?

    That's the entire point.

    The earth's climate has been changing for millions of years, back and forth to varying degrees, and has changed, according to the people you cite, for "200-plus years". It is the amount of 'human activity factor' that remains the rub.
    LOL! Thanks for your uneducated opinion there anonymous internet guy, it has added so much to the discussion.

    Glad you learned something!

    The science of climate change is only getting better as we speak - its stuff like this that you want to refrain from, however. The Earth is a huge place and is most certainly not in equilibrium. Pointing to pictures of a small part of it percentage-wise does not strengthen arguments. The Earth, as a whole has gotten generally warmer and is continuing to trend that way. However, I can certainly point to parts of it (bigger than what you showed), that have gotten colder.

    That's true. But Greenland is of particular concern given the vast amount of ice there and very serious effect it would have on sea levels if it goes bye bye.

    Yes, that's true. It doesn't have any particular significance in terms of proof, though. About as much as going into a room of 30 people and saying they all wear blue shirts, while using one persons shirt as evidence.

    Yes, I agree. But you could look at the minimum sea ice extent in all of the Arctic and it becomes more convincing.
