Satellite measurements taken between 1994 and 2017 have detected significant changes in the thickness of the floating ice shelves that surround the Antarctic Ice Sheet. These shelves buttress against the land-based ice, holding them in place like a safety band.

My Life is just a bunch of "It seemed like a good idea at the time" strung together.

We should expect to see large parts of the Ice shelf calving off in the coming months if those changes have continued to the present......and also faster movement of continental ice masses. They probably have continued to the present too....IMO.
BTW, Nice thread!

All kidding aside, yes I do. Only a fool would think that climate doesn't change. Earth is dynamic.

As for belief in man made climate change.....Not so much... Man made weather change I can believe.

Just read this

The amount of heat being added to the oceans is equivalent to every person on the planet running 100 microwave ovens all day and all night.

I want to visit the snow in Antarctica before global warming turns it into a tropical paradise.

I would rather visit the forests of Iceland and see the benefits of a warmer world.
