At the moment, the ice caps are holding global warming down somewhat, like ice in a glass of water. However, in the long run, as the ice increases in temperature and then melts, it will hold down the CO2 warming less. This isn't something that will be significant in the next couple of decades, but further in the future, the decreasing effect of the ice caps in holding down global warming will be noticeable.

In addition to the ice caps, deep ocean water is cold and that is also temporarily reducing the warming we are seeing.

We are seeing significant global warming, along with the increasing number of severe hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, etc. which the climate models predict. But the situation would be even worse if we didn't have the very temporary counter effects of the ice caps and cold of deep sea water.

Wrong as of last week global ice extent was 1.000.000 sq KM above average, we have had no significant warming for 17yrs.
Extreme weather events are not increasing the US has experienced less hurricanes and tornadoes in the last ten years, however it has experienced more snow and record cold events, is that the extreme weather you are talking about, but somehow I don't see how you can blame that on global warming

The Antarctic ice is at record levels. At least keep up on the topic if you are going to spout facts.

Where are you getting your data about increased extreme weather? That is also wrong.

But, you will get to keep your doctor.

the only ice cap is in Antarctica...it has been growing since recorded history...there is no arctic polar ice cap..there is just sea ice that is seasonal mostly...unless you are talking about greenland which is not the north pole..at any rat the total glacial mass of the earth has been steadily increasing not declining since this global warming debate started

The study you have used is talking about a selection of glaciers.

I have seen it before. It does not look at the great ice sheets especially Antarctica, which has increased in ice mass.

You should also consider the impact of the amount of ice melt in your graphs. How much sea level rise would you expect from a 25 billion tonne melt?

It is reasy to work out please show me that you are better than most of the alarmist types who regard maths as the work of the devil by doing the sum.

Yes, there is...but it is more of a polar ice yarmulke. It will exist until the Arctic finally becomes completely ice-free.

Remember, Arctic ice is kosher!


Global Warming: The preferred religion of the scientifically illiterate.

Ceist - I couldn't agree with you more. But when money and religion are involved, and there are people who value them above all else, then the lies begin. - trafn

You are completely misunderstanding their use of the word "accumulation"! - Climate Scientist.

The Stefan-Boltzman equation doesn't come up with the correct temperature if greenhouse gases are not considered - Hank

:*sigh* Not the "raw data" crap. - Leafsdude

IB STILL hasn't explained what Planck's Law means. Just more hand waving that it applies to everything and more asserting that the greenhouse effect 'violates' it.- Ceist
