Glaciers have advanced and retreated since there has been water in the atmosphere.

If you are worried about sea levels rising, don’t make an investment on the coast.

Don't fall for the arrogant arguments that humans could change it, or keep it from changing. You and I are of no consequence with changing weather patterns.
If we painted a parallel between religious beliefs and environmental beliefs, the climate change doomsdayers who refuse to have kids because they think the world will literally burn are the functional equivalent to Muslim terrorists bombing innocents at the market. But people like you who refuse to accept any possibility that humans can even nudge the environment at the margins are the equivalent to the radical atheists who have to go around every day actively seeking believers to chastise.


Clearly, the terrorists group is by far the worst category on the religious spectrum. But damn man, those uppity, arrogant atheists sure do bug the shite out of me too. Both groups strike me as profoundly stupid.

When Obama, Al Hore, Zuckerberg, Bernie, etc… sell their beachfront properties collectively I will panic. Until then it’s fricking horse shite.

re: Why scientists are so worried about this glacier
Climate Change is the natural order of the Earth’s climate.

Whether the present climate change is the result of human interaction and to what degree is fairly moot.

We’ll adapt and survive. Might not be pretty in human terms but it’s what we do.

The waves of plague weren’t pretty. They were so severe to human population numbers because we had stopped being hunter gatherers and had started to live in towns where the density made plague terrible.

We survived.

Climate change will impact presently arable lands taking them out of viable production. Possibly that might trigger food shortages or famine in some parts of the world. Terrible, but the survival of the species is not at risk.

People are starving today just like they have for EVERY year of (at least) the past several millennia, we are not breaking new ground here.

We will survive.

What about the lands that become arable as a result of climate change?

5000 years ago the Sahara was a tropical jungle. Thousands of years before fossil fuels. Before that it was an ocean, millions of years before fossil fuels.

The ice shelf that they are discussing is tidewater. Most is under water


Didnt read, my bad.

Yeah, dont care about melting sea ice so much except for the change in albedo of water vs ice.

Maybe you should watch the video before commenting? The melting ice shelf is allowing warm sea water to reach between the bedrock and the bottom of the glacier causing the glacier itself to start melting from inside out.


Tell me what the worst possible outcome is?

Coastal cities will be underwater?

Ok big fricking deal. We will move inland and rebuild. There are ancient coastal cities that are now underwater everywhere.

The shite that went down in a Wuhan lab 2 years ago is much more of a threat to humans worldwide than our fossil fuels, and I don’t see any democrats worked up about that.

When there is massive snow melt off the Sierra Nevada Mountains every year, do ocean levels rise?

None of this will happen in several lifetimes, and of course we will survive it if it did, but major coastal cities being consumed by the ocean would kind of be a big fricking deal.

It’s not even close to civilization ending

Humans are terrible at risk assessment

Meanwhile we continue to engineer viruses and pursue AI. No one is freaking out about that and the odds of it ending civilization are much higher than climate change.

Where were all these geniuses when I needed help
with my heat transfer homework?

It’s a lot like playing Perry Mason in your spare time, it looks like fun but in actuality drafting legal crap is a drag.
