"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." Theodore Roosevelt

Whass'abi Kyoto?

While George Bush still lives in a fantasy world where the earth doesn't get any warmer as a result of human activities and heat pollution, the ice sheet in Greenland is disappearing faster than scientists previously thought. Much faster. And presumably, so is the Antarctic ice and the polar (north) ice sheet.
The comprehensive analysis found that the amount of ice dumped into the Atlantic Ocean has doubled in the last five years.

If the Greenland ice sheet melted completely, it would raise global sea levels by about 7m.

Greenland's contribution to global sea level rise today is two to three times greater than it was in 1996.

And that's just Greenland. This earth is going to get a lot more crowded when the oceans rise by some 21 feet. Just imagine how little dirt will be left when all the ice melts.
