Alarming Report - Greenland MeltingThere is a lot of water in this world -323,722,000 cubic miles of it in the oceans alone-and there is more coming.According to Dr. Hans Ahlmann, a Swedish geophysicist, a mysterious warming of the Arctic climate is melting the Arctic ice, including the vast Greenland ice-cap. As this ice melts, water is pouring into the ocean and raising the sea level at what geologists regard as a dizzy rate.Dr. Ahlmann told the Geophysical Institute of the University of California that the ocean level in the Spitzbergen area had risen one inch in thc last 25 years. He said that if the ice areas continued melting at the present rate, the ocean surface would rise to catastrophic proportions and peoples living in lowlands bordering the seashores would be inundated."The Arctic change is so serious that I hope an international agency can speedily be formed to study conditions on a global basis," he said

havent been subject to any real scare mongering by climate scientists
Is anyone associated with The Naked Scientists able to do that?
