The alarmist global warming media is ramping up another scare. A huge piece of one of the ice shelves in northern Antarctica appears to be splitting off from the rest of that ice shelf. When that happens, sea levels are not expected to rise significantly. Most of the ice shelf is already underwater, displacing water.
This article in the New York Times is well illustrated.

The following article explains in simple layman’s terms how human-produced CO2 or even total CO2 plus all other human-produced greenhouse gases in the atmosphere cannot heat the oceans in any significant amount.
