A Test For Algorites

A quick quiz for the global warming folks.

Read this article and then:

1. Calculate how many tons of CO2 emissions it would take to melt 2 miles of compressed ice in a subzero environment. Please give your answer in tons per year and further express the human population required to do so in the five years Algore has predicted our polar caps will be gone.

2. Explain why past heating epochs, far warmer than the current supposed heating, were unable to prevent the accumulation of ice two miles thick.

3. Explain how the Arctic sea ice, having already displaced an equal volume of water, will cause our sea levels to rise. Hint: Take a glass of water and drop in some ice cubes then mark the level of water. Allow the ice to melt and note the level of water.
