Which Ice Sheet Will Melt Down First?

It is summer in Greenland, and temperatures were up to a blistering 7F (-14C) on the ice sheet this afternoon. Meanwhile, Antarctica is experiencing the joys of winter at -110F.

Huffington Post expects that sea level will rise 200 feet when the ice sheets melt down. Perhaps they could tell us which one will melt first?

    None in your, Huff’s, or anyone else’s lifetime!

    The inconvenient truth is that both are gaining in total snow/ice volume, even as the edges ablate, as that is what edges do, and recently, at slower rates!

    Considering that geological evidence shows Earth is quite colder than the Holocene optimum (about 9ka to 6ka) and far, far colder than all of the Pliocene Epoch and earlier times, a little bit of warming would just be restoring “normal”

    The polar ice caps have been around for several million years already, so neither will melt until temps get way, way hotter than now.

    We have far more to fear from COLD than HOT

      I agree 100%. I have made this same argument with warmists before and they can’t (won’t?) see it. They point to the European heatwave of 2003 and that is their “proof” of the opposite. Trying to reason with them after that is like trying to reason with a can opener.

    On ClimateProgress they said Greenland reached 76F… I don’t know where they got that.
