I forgot which Novel it was, but Clive Cussler wrote a story which involved this very scenario. It involved a Mad Man hell bent on destroying the Earth, and causing Massive Tsunamis, Destruction, etc., through his Manipulation of the Antarctic Ice Shelf. It was actually quite dramatic, and plausible.
However, no matter how possible this Shelf Collapse in fact remains, I have a slighting suspicion that this is yet another "Human Induced Global Warming" Panic Attempt.
Science is so forever corrupted, by the likes of Gore and other Politicians, that it has now become ever more difficult to discern true Studies from Political Agendas and simple Grant Grabbing. What a shame.

This has been happening for a while now. Check out this link.
If I remember correctly, the tsunami back in '04 (?) was so powerful that it knocked the Earth off its axis by 3 degrees.
If the Earth was tilted 49degrees Alaska, Iceland, Scotland, Norway, Sweden, Northern Russia, Northern Canada would currently be in a sunless winter like the North pole. This is kind of hard to cover up! (I live in Scotland and the sun is still in the same low position as it was 30 years ago and the sunset/sunrise times are the same)
So I'm afraid that link is to a very dismissable conspiracy theory. No doubt the author is a Global Warming skeptic.

I was under the impretion that the Earth's Axis' were controlled by magnetic forces. So if this is the case how would the shift of a material such as water affect global magnetism???????

Yes, I know ice is less dense than water. Water swells when it freezes and therefore ice has more volume.
Try filling a bowl with ice cubes - heap them up, and when they have all melted the water will not likely overflow.You can pile them up pretty good to make up for any air spaces. Of course if you really made the effort you could stack it so that it would.
The rising sea scenario is part of TPTB fear campaign. Without massive crustal displacement - no big rise in sea level.
