As the Captain of the Titanic said

Melting sea ice would cause sea levels to rise by 'hair's breadth' - Telegraph
Professor Andrew Shepherd, one of the authors of the study published in Geophysical Research Letters, said the tiny rise caused by melting ice was still significant.
"Over recent decades there have been dramatic reductions in the quantity of Earth's floating ice, including collapses of Antarctic ice shelves and the retreat of Arctic sea ice," he said.

No Sea Ice decrease in the Antarctic and not much in the Arctic; maybe it is in the gin and tonics on the cruise boats...


Ice? Tonic?? In gin??? Have they no shame????

I wonder whether the higher sea level caused by extra water in the sea due to the melting of ice shelves is compensated by the reduction in weight of those shelves depressing the continents.
