Antarctica is a continent, not a mere island.
Originally posted by utherpendragonUther, while you may be able to find some contrary anecdotal evidence, the evidence of global warming is all too real and depressing. The evidence that it is substantially man made, while not quite as clear, is also pretty strong.
[b]Glaciers are growing around the world,
including the United States
1. Glaciers growing on Mt. Shasta - Record snowfall to spur even more growth

This looks like a more scientific study, because it isn't just cherry-picking:
and here's the United Nations on the subject:
Anyone interested in looking at the whole field can easily find information with proper scientific studies and references.
Originally posted by PsychoPawnFurther more; Glaciers growing where they have been historically stable can ironically be evidence of global warming, as one result is to cut off warming elements such as the 'gulf stream' from areas they historically reached due to desalinated water from melting arctic glaciers flowing into the Atlantic.
Just wanted to note the final sentence in that scientific study:
"When you narrowly focus on a few cherry picked glaciers, you can be misled into an incorrect view of global glacier trends. When you take in the broader picture, you see that globally, glaciers are shrinking at an accelerating rate"
Originally posted by AThousandYoungI am with you as far as over grazing, along with, rising temperatures and lower precipitation levels causing desertization, but are you also saying that over grazing caused the ice caps to melt?
The best evidence for global warming in my opinion is sea level rise:
Some people might find it relevant that man made global warming led to a worldwide dramatic rise in sea levels when the glaciers covering northern Europe melted around 5-10 thousand years ago. There was intense aridification ...[text shortened]... like and called it "the Beginning" i.e. Genesis. Why? Because it was when civilization began.
