Most of the projected rise in sea levels is due to the expansion of water as it warms.

Water doesn't really expand very much when it gets warmer. The effect is negligible.

No, it really isn't. Not when you're talking about all the water in the ocean.

No the effect is not negligible. Think about the seasonal changes in sea surface height. That is near strictly the result of changes in water density (because of changes in ocean temperatures). Can be about 15 cm.

The water might be expanding as it cools. The planet has been cooling down for quite sometime. All the signs are there. Africa is getting covered in snow as we speak.

4°C warm water has the highest possible density, assuming room pressure. If you go below or above that, water expands.

You do not understand physics for water. Water expands when it FREEZES (solid, ICE. This is how it destroys your plumbing if you don't insulate properly) and when it's warmer than the temperature the other reply mentioned.

39 degrees Fahrenheit is the temperature where water is most dense.

It had a rainforest on it Because of the volcanic activity keeping things warm and the hot winds directed toward it by the shape of the continents back then now the air does not go there..and it remains cold and desolate. not hot winds=no tropics.

You see kids paying attention in high school science pays off.

How much government money was given to climate change business'

This isn't my argument. Anyone that's seen Yosemite Valley can see the effects of climate change. The question is: how many government funds were the cause of unbiased anger and outrage.

The funny thing about this is that last year or maybe 2 years ago or so the IPPC acknowledged that Antarctica was gaining mass.... I don't really understand how that got turned completely around...

Very inconvenient for the liberal agenda and their bootlickers of the media.
