Re: Global warming,so what happened to it.

I've done my bit for carbon emissions. I have banned the mother-in-law from flying out to see us.

Coastal regions will be inundated; one-sixth of Bangladesh could be flooded, displacing a fourth of its 90 million people. A fifth of Egyptís arable land in the Nile Delta would be flooded, cutting off its food supply, according to a joint UNEP and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency study."

And here is the Maldives as we speak. Beautiful, innit?

Why is Noel Brown wrong? He says that eventually the Maldives will be inundated if polar ice caps continue to melt and in that he is clearly correct.

I know it is fashionable for certain members to mock the opinions of experts but in doing so they usually make themselves look ridiculous - and I look forward to RCís answer to your question 😊

Let's hope you are right alva. What concerns me are the poorer countries being paid for taking in the richer countries, including ours,rubbish to deal with it. Whilst we can pat ourselves on the back pretending we have done our bit. What nonsense !

Re: Global warming,so what happened to it.

Another fact some seem to miss is days are longer in summer because heat expands

If the prediction by Noel Brown has been shown to be incorrect, how can that now suddenly transpose to "clearly correct"?

Confused.

A respectful question, as the Arctic is a "Floating icecap" any melting would not raise the sea level,
The Antarctic ice cap is land based, so melt water will raise sea levels.

Is this correct?

Re: Global warming,so what happened to it.

Mollag!! I was hoping Mr. Jaycey would fall for that one lol.

You are correct. The Arctic ocean around the North Pole is frozen. Therefore, even if it completely melted, it would not affect the capacity of the oceans because it is already there- Archimedes' principle.
