______ In this debate to debate whether climate change exists or not, we forget the real and present problem, the pollution that kills millions of people every year in every breath we take. So we have to do anything anyway __________

I assume that after doing this report, ABC went to Antarctica to figure out why it is gaining ice?

OMG the Alt-Right Koch Trolls Science Deniars have littered the commants section with moronic turds of wisdom- What a load of BS. The water got warmer off teh north east coast because of an underwater volcano moron! And you really think. Where did you get your "thinking thing?" The 'Thing" you think with...your mind...morons are not qualified to 'Think. with you I.Q. of 43 you must be an Americoon.

The Flying Spaghetti Monster is depicted as a tangle of spaghetti with many Noodly Appendages, flanked by two delicious meatballs, and with a pair of googly eyes upon stalks. Such a depiction is merely a guess, of course, as the FSM is understandably invisible to all known forms of scientific detection. Although the exact airspeed velocity of an unladen Flying Spaghetti Monster is unknown, it is widely believed that it is more than likely to be faster than a cheetah. However, this is not the answer you are looking for. You need to think for yourselves!
Whether or not the FSM is actually made of pasta is the subject of intense theological debate, with many claiming that the FSM is not made of pasta, but just appears to be, while others believe that to be a Flying Spaghetti Monster, the FSM must be made of pasta. The FSM is neither male nor female, but completely genderless, as the idea of a Monotheistic deity needing a gender or genitals is pretty silly when you really think about it. The genderless term Pastafarians refer to FSM as is ‘Quob’ – as in – ‘May you be Touched by Quob’s Noodly Appendage’ instead of referring to our deity’s Noodly Appendages as ‘his’ or ‘her’ Noodly Appendages
All followers of the FSM hold that pirates are sacred and were the first Pastafarians. Climate change, earthquakes, hurricanes and other natural disasters are directly linked to the declining number of pirates worldwide. Many Pastafarians therefore choose to wear full pirate regalia as a means to help the environment and belay natural disasters. Other Pastafarians just like wearing colanders on their heads

Shills for the carbon tax billionaires.

Greenland was once a tropical jungle.. along with Canada, all of North America, Europe, and Russia. Do you really think we're going to manage to keep Earth within one temperature range? Good luck. Co2 doesn't cause temperature increase, temperature increase causes an increase in Co2. Dooiii. Ole Gore told you there was a correlation but he didn't say what it was, then he married Co2 and temperature while leaving out the critical element. Lol.

We're fu*ked

Change can be frightening. Especially when there is so much negative propaganda like that presented by media organizations and political movements hoping to capitalize on that fear. Hopefully most people will use their common sense and own minds to think about the prospect of a warmer more productive planet.

Do not travel to Turkey so long as Erdangon is President of Turkey, His human rights recird is disgusting. Visit Greenland instead or Egypt.

What a load of BS. The water got warmer off teh north east coast because of an underwater volcano. Otherwise Greenland is actually gaining ice again. By the way, until about 1000 years ago it was called Greenland for a reason. It was also abandoned for a reason, it got too cold.
Jonathan Jonckheere
I'm confused. How do the lakes dry up with more ice melting?

Real clean lab. The guy is handling fish taken from the gut of a bigger fish without gloves or sanitation protocols.

If it is supposed to keep the ice why is it called Greenland. Probably because it was green at one time.
