I wish there was something out there so you could get perspective on how big it was.

Don't care if it was 20 years ago.

It would still be astonishing.

It was whole scale thing, it was not until they showed the time laps and the overhead view did you get an idea of scale, Up to then I have no clue how large it all was.

It is what comes to mind ... especially when they provide the 100 years melt versus 10 years melt, satellite / scale shot at the end of the film.

I think that we are in for some significant shocks in the coming 10 to 20 years in regards to the rapid escalation of polar and Greenland ice sheet and glacial melting. I think this melting is going to have almost indeterminable effects on all of the life on the planet. I really don't want to sound like some ranting hyperbolic hippy, but we really have no clue as to how this will pan out - nor do we have any control over it. As this film so aptly demonstrates.

It is extra-ordinarily scary. So much so, that there is this mass ignorance and denial on behalf of the majority of mankind. It's a denial based on fear.

I am of the personal opinion that if we stopped all industrial activity, turned off all the lights and didn't drive a further mile : we have still put into action, a sequence of events that will savage the ecosystems of the earth that have been established over millions of years. The ecosystems of the planet are interconnected in such a fundamental, yet delicate way, that upsetting any one of them in singularity is simply not possible. They are all interconnected.

I am just an armchair observer. Anyone armed with a scientific background and facts to substantiate ... please do chime in. Thanks.

I bet the person or persons who came up with that wording is wishing they never used the word warming, it should have been Global Climate chancing, since some places are seeing warming, others cooling, some more dry and others more wet. The total effect it different from what we have been seeing.

And we have idiots arguing over the words the scientific world chose to uses verses looking at the what it happen around them. Jon Steward did a nice job of pointing out the idiots. I like the House Rep asking when do we run out of air to breath when they were talked about CO levels going up, if you do not want to watch it all jump to 5:00 then jump to 7:30 which is directly related to the video in this thread.

The Earth, and Life, will go on.

It may not be the Earth we know, it may not be the Life we have grown accustomed to. Tell it to the dinosaurs, all they did was fart and look what happened to them.

Funny thing about dinosaurs is, we all have this “image” of what Paleontologist painted in our heads of what Dinosaurs look like. These “images” are based on bits and pieces of fossils and some computer graphics. But what if these "images" are not even close to their actual appearance? I’m sure based on the skeletal structure they came pretty close. But what if they got it wrong? It’s not like anyone has actually seen one.
