1. Don't worry rush will be along with

 

The daily talking point about how people with ice makers in thier refrigerators are actually offsetting the loss. And in fact, there is actually more ice available now than any other time in history.

2. Wait, in 2014 when the Antartic recorded its largest amount of ice in recorded history

We were told by you people the cause was global warming.

Does this mean the decrease is due to global cooling?

3. Yea, I remember when 'Lake Michigan practically froze over. It was due to Global Warming.

So I can see where simpleness can be used to prove the same concept though the results are different.

4. Trendlines are important to look at

 

Your memory of a single event is pretty much irrelevant.

5. No, I remember a boat being in a boathouse built into a home on the water in the 60's.....

..that boathouse is now a living room. The elevation of the same is the same, yet now it's a living space. No sea level rise in what almost 50 years. Memories are observations, observations are what make science. Memories that defy trends are actually pretty important.

6. You're babbling, sorry

 

If you think what you're doing is science in any way, shape, or form you've been sadly misled.

8. I use to manage scientist, or rather baby sit and play referee to them.

I got them focused and produced a report and devised some new technology. I own a company that produces scientific products, based on science and tangible realities.

I know what I'm talking about.

9. One could be able to solve 7th degree polynomial equations in their head

and the watermelon doomers would still call you stupid. They are just as much unreachable religious fanatics blindly reciting doomer dogma as is this guy.

7. That is only possible because Obama lowered the seas back in 2009.

But now that Dear Leader is out of office the seas will rise again. DOOM DOOM DOOM! The only solution is to raise taxes and increase government spending. Yeah! That's the ticket.

Trump Pushes For Massive Budget, Staff Cuts At EPA
President Donald Trump will ask Congress to cut the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) budget 24 percent, or nearly $2 billion, according to sources familiar with the budget plans.

The White House sent draft budget plans to agency heads Monday, detailing billions of dollars in cuts to a wide range of federal programs. Cuts to EPA and other agencies will fund a $54 billion increase in defense spending.

10. I wouldn't count on that long term

Until demonstrated otherwise I'm assuming that it is just a random fluctuation. There are good reasons why it may and good reasons why it may not be such a fluctuation. We'll know in a few years with reasonable certainty.
