Arctic ice-cap loss twice the size of France: research

The Arctic ice cap has shrunk by an area twice the size of France's land mass over the last two years, the Paris-based National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) said Wednesday.

"The year 2008 promises to be a critical year on every level," said Jean-Claude Gascard, the body's research director and coordinator of European scientific mission Damocles, which is monitoring the effects of climate change across the Arctic.

Over the last 20 years, 40 percent of the ice-cap has melted with the average thickness halved from three to 1.5 metres.

So if 40% is gone over the last 20 years and our ocean's have only risen 20 cm over the last 20 years, (according to upload.wikimedia.org...), then we have 60% left which will only cause our oceans to rise another 30 cm if the whole ice cap melts. This means that the global warming projection that the ocean's will flood our low lying cities is false. This also mean's that the water is not all directly going into our ocean's as predicted.
