    Greenland is just trying to live up to its name.

    Haha. That's an interesting point, but it would likely only account for an incremental change in height...like a couple of inches at most. Unless you're measuring it, you'd never know it happened.

    I'm going to play ignorant on this like the republicans.

    1. There's little difference in the Ice around Greenland, thats just the left creating a conspiracy to make money on new technology, Besides, the Lefty scientists had been over estimating the Ice for decades, they're just now giving the actual smaller Ice cover estimates because it plays right into their conspiracy theory Besides God promised not to destroy the world again, so its all cool, don't listen to them Lefty socialists, they're just trying to gain control by whatever means they can !!!

    2. The worlds sea levels aren't raising, its just the shore lines sinking, its in the bible somewhere.

    Did 97% of Greenland's ice melt or was there melting on 97% of Greenland ice?

    edit:

    http://worldnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2012/07/24/12927340-ice-melt-found-across-97-percent-of-greenland-satellites-show?lite
    "Greenland has enough ice to raise sea levels by 23 feet if it all melted off...

    A recent study found that it could take a long-term increase in global temperatures of just 2-3 degrees Fahrenheit to completely melt Greenland's ice sheet in 2,000 years. "

    2000 years??? Quickly, man life rafts! Ladies and children first. Follow me, your captain.
