    Yes, the earth has been warming and cooling in alternating cycles for
    millions of years. It still is. Stop worrying. You can't do anything
    about it.

    If it makes you feel any beter, run and tell the king that the sky is
    falling. Or better still, drive there in your electric car with the
    peace symbol and Obamma bumper stickers.

    Not so. Even the pix captions don't claim that.

    <q> This particular ice bridge breaks up and reforms regularly. Even
    though the images show a routine event, they provide a spectacular view
    of the sometimes dramatic arrival of summer in the Polar South. </q>


    Not too many such southern hemisphere summers ago, a chunk broke off
    which was the size of Delaware, which is bigger than RI. 1998 Oct.

    Now you're on the right track. Pure evidence of it that's been happening
    for the last few decades. However that's only real evidence if glaciers in
    Antarica are shrinking and depositing more ice in the oceans than they gain in
    a year. Which *is* what's actually happenning.

    How does a shrinking glacier prove it? exact same thing. Granted it *is* only
    one case of calving of a glacier, but they've been happening in greater mass
    than the glaciers have gained ice in a year if you include the other melting
    as well.

    "Glaciers bigger than Rhode Island" have always been cited as "proof" of
    global warming...

    then a big fight ensues


    Easy solution here...heck since long ago, Alaska overtook Texas as the
    largest state...I say just give a huge chunk of Texas to Rhode Island to
    make it bigger...much bigger.


    That will solve all the "bigger than Rhode Island" glacier problems
    and we'll all get along then...
    just so long as they don't give Rhode Island the part of Texas that Bush
    is on!

    No, you move that to Alaska - stick in on the north side. Payback's a
    b*tch GW.
