I would not consider this map to be completely accurate but it does give an idea....

4 degrees 'average' may not sound like a lot but it is taken over annual measurement it makes a huge difference
Originally posted by zorgonDoes this map factor in Antarctic melting as well?

Actually not. Since all of the ice at the North Pole is sea ice. melting it will not cause any change in sea levels -- sort of like the ice cubes melting in your drink -- it doesn't make the drink overflow.
The melting ice that can cause changes in the ocean levels is the antarctic and Greenland ice sheets sheets that are on land. As they melt, they add to the amount of water in the oceans. Remember that there is no land ice in the arctic
Except that your glass of water doesn't have ice rising a kilometer above the rim. You have to account for the ice ABOVE the surface of the water. That will have an impact.
Its actually embarrassing reading comments by those who wish to continue the charade that global warming is a non-event. The facts are completely indisputable and are globally accepted except for the most totally isolated crack-pots. There is absolutely NO ARGUMENT beyond "doubt" raised by oil companies through front groups such as the lavoisier group.
This isn't some conspiracy which could be orchestrated by a a global group - this is the complete and utter agreement of 99 % of the worlds leading climatologists acting, researching and publishing their findings independently.

there is consensus that humans are the cause of recent volcanic activity.
you should be put on trials for crimes against humanity for saying volcanoes aren't man made.
