A friend of mine watches the History Channel, because that's true information. Apparently she's seen a program twice about how global warming is causing the ice to melt and the additional weight of the water is increasing the likelihood of earthquakes.
Danger, Will Robinson, danger!!!
Going from freezing to liquid changes the weight? Who knew?
What about the weight of the water when it was ice?
The solution to Globul Warming is an easy one: The Goberment should order everybody to turn around their AC in their windows - to make cold air be blown outside,in to the street. If enough people do that, the temps outside will go down. Obviously the AC should be as energy efficient as possible, and if you can’t afford an AC for this purpose the Government should provide you with a grant.
Fewer and fewer people are falling for this crap because they have real problems to worry about..
It is true. The weight of water behind China’s 3 gourges dam has already triggered a few earthquakes. Melting the ice caps in Greenland would certainly cause large earthquakes.
Nah - tell her the extra weight of the water keeps the tectonic plates from sliding so reduces earthquakes.
Oh, why bother...
WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE!
“What about the weight of the water when it was ice?”
You aren’t allowed to question the logic of the Religion of Globo Warmin!
The History Channel is “true information”???
Everyone knows that a pound of water weighs more than a pound of ice. /s
She'll probably drown from the rising oceans.
We need that OMG!! OH NOES!! gif
The History Channel is losing credibility more every day.
Which is heavier, 100 trillion tons of water or 100 trillion tons of feathers? Oh, and I’ll have a latte with extra foam and X’d with chocolate.
It’s late and I am tired so I am just going to say it-your friend is an idiot, get rid of her. Well, I guess not if you enjoy laughing at people.
No, the inequitable redistribution of molten ice will cause planetary imbalance, like losing a balance weight off the tire of your car ... whop, whop, whop, whop. All the sloshing around will then unfairly inundate predominantly progressive coastal environments, with women and minorities hardest hit. The earthquakes will be secondary.
And what’s worse, those Palin snowbillies will get better weather and more land, so it’s clearly reactionary.
A fleet of seaborne windfarms with icemakers is the answer, but not within sight of any liberal enclave. Maybe they can be anchored off Alabama or something? Certainly nowhere near Massachussetts.
