    1. Who needs the ice-melt data when you can simply double the hell out of the "unlimited thermal expansion" myth currently in vogue.

  2. They don't include feedback loops or radiation either Mark.
    IPCC is just a straw-organization to prevent any real action on business as usual. Don't worry though, civilization will be its own un-doing.


    1. IPCC dudes say "Reality is sooooo haaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrddddddd to do.

      Hey, let's play pretend and make models out of play doh!"

  3. Scribbler subscribes to the "thermal expansion is the major player" is SLC for this and the previous century.

  4. Thanks Dredd and Tom!

    "First thing I remember was askin' papa, "Why?",
    For there were many things I didn't know.
    And Daddy always smiled; took me by the hand,
    Sayin', "Someday you'll understand."
