Efforts to remove climate-warming carbon dioxide from Earths atmosphere appear to be getting a helping hand from a surprising source: the iron in meltwater from Antarctic icebergs.
Icebergs calving off of Antarctica are shedding substantial iron the equivalent of a growth-boosting vitamin into waters starved of the mineral, a new set of studies demonstrates. This iron is fertilizing the growth of microscopic plants and algae, transforming the waters adjacent to ice floes into teeming communities of everything from tiny shrimplike krill to fish, birds and sometimes mammals.

The glaciers that do break off and fall into the ocean because of globalwarming help to reduce CO2, which is supposedly a pollutant.
This is GOOD!
We need more globull warming!
WE NEED TO MELT THE GLACIERS TO SAVE THE EARTH!
The earth displays buffers that keep the climate relatively balanced over the short term. Any idiot with half a brain could tell you that if C02 caused warming, then this would set off a one-directional spiral. C02 would cause warming would release more CO2 from the ocean, more warming, infinitely. The earth could never return to a cooling cycle if this were true.
Yet we know the earth experiences regular repeated cycles of warming and cooling.
The socialist’s plan to use environmentalism to destroy progress and capitalism is completely transparent when you bother to look at how ignorant their science is. I swear, I can hear them laughing at the mass of useful idiots among the world’s populace who believe the tripe they try to pass off as scientific. I am sure even they are stunned at how easily they can dupe the ignorant masses with their junk science.
More evidence that the Earth is a self-regulating, self-adjusting system.
I thought they said bin Laden’s body was going to do that?
Oooh, oooh, you just got to work on a new pic of that scene!
More evidence that God is just TOO AWESOME~!!!!!!!
Our God is indeed an Awesome God!!
And Al Gore sucks....
Just as The Creator designed and created it.
