  1. Climate change has been a topic of debate for years and while many would agree that more needs to be done to address the issue, others may have a tougher time visualizing just how serious it could be if ignored.

  2. This makes me think of the game BioShock!

    Oh good grief, what a stupid thing. If the polar ice caps melted, it would do the same thing as a large chunk of ice, in a glass full of water. The weight of the ice melting would displace the area, and the water level would remain the same, if not go down a little.
     
  5. Its their money so they can spend/waste it how they choose. But Google's alarmist views on climate change are becoming more apparent by the day.

    If the polar ice caps melted the flow of salt water in the sea would be disrupted which could cause climate change (If what the scientist claim is correct). Would be funnier if they modded it to see how an ice age would look like.

    Btw, ur statement is not entirely correct. What you say only counts for the volume (Corrected, I said mass) already in the water. Ever experimented by placing 2 icecubes on top of eachother? The biggest on the bottom and a somewhat smaller on top. Let it melt and you will see that the amount that was above the water level causes water level to rise once it melts...

    How does this apply to Antarctica?
