23 Mar 07 –– Global warming will melt all ice on the face of the earth, the alarmists shout, and sea levels will rise by 64 meters. Many coastal cities will be under water, and so will the Netherlands, a significant part of which lies below sea level.
Not to worry. The Dutch and the rest of the planet may rest assured: this hypothetical catastrophe could not take place anytime within the next thousand years.
The reasoning is simple. If any ice floating in the oceans should melt, sea levels will not change because the volume of water created by melting ice is equal to the volume of water that the ice displaces.
But what if the huge island and continental glaciers should melt?
That can’t happen, says the Russian Information Agency Novosti.
Look at Antarctica. The Antarctic Ice Sheet, which is to two miles thick and covers around five million square miles (twice the size of the continental United States), contains more than 90% of the world's ice. With average temperatures in Antarctica now hovering at less than 40 degrees below zero, even if temperatures should rise 3-6 degrees Celsius over the next century as promised by the global warming alarmists (which I don’t believe), it would still be far too cold to have a significant influence on the Antarctic Ice Sheet.
(How would the ice melt if it’s still more than 30 degrees below zero?)
