Global warming predictions dead wrong

Global warming predictions were wrong -- in the sense that "Greenland's glaciers are melting into the sea twice as fast as previously believed." As Steven D writes: "Oh those liberal commie evilutionistic scientists got it all wrong again!"

Scientists admittedly don't understand it but check out this statistic:


In 1996, the amount of water produced by melting ice in Greenland was about 90 times the amount consumed by Los Angeles in a year. Last year, the melted ice amounted to 225 times the volume of water that city uses annually.
Not good. Yet, despite the fact that less than a week ago NYC suffered its worst snowstorm in history and I'm looking out my window at snowless streets this morning, I'm wary of doomsday talk... particularly when the effects aren't being felt directly. People have a tendency to dismiss it and say: well, you say that, but I don't see anything going on...

Not so this time, actually. From a glacier expert at Cambridge (who knew there were "glacier experts"?): "we are talking of the worst storm settings, the biggest storm surges . . . you are upping the probability major storms will take place."

Yes, you remember Katrina and the exceptionally severe hurricane season... (BoomanTribune)
