    "With the ice caps reduced in size one would expect that coastal water levels would rise, instead they have fallen without explanation as the global warming hoax. "

    When ice melts it takes less space. Melting ice caps on land run off into the ocean and raise sea level, you got that right. However, melting sea ice that was already in the ocean (as Arctic sea ice set a record low last year) ends up taking up less space slowing the rate of sea level rise.

    I had warned you about this before, however you have not seen fit, or are censored.
    While we enter a drought , rather than restrict our citizens water,perhaps the new facility in Bluffdale will shutdown their facility until the drought is over. Considering they are/or going to be using 1,700,000 gallons of water a day in order to spy on us, and we have paid them over 2 billion dollars to do this so certainly they would be kind enough to understand our plight.

    When will the censorship of our news be lifted

    3 consecutive 100 deg days and that's a record? Come to Central Texas where a couple years ago in 2011 we had 27 consecutive days and 90 days for the year of over 100. This last Saturday it was 108.

    I blast those on the right for using cold "weather" as proof that global warming is a hoax.

    This article and this heat wave is weather. Please don't confuse the two.

    Weather and climate are two very different things.

    We do not have global warming, science has proven it has been a hoax and they have been lying about one since the term evolved into a giant scare scam.

    However, that does not preclude a scorched earth scenario where destructive water abuse and development have surpassed the ability to sustain dry conditions anymore. When parts of the country who have historically had surpluses of river flows and natural flooding that has been stopped in its tracks, they too are now suffering from dehydration with low water tables and diminishing aquifers.

    Water, a natural element that cannot be created by man, and over the generations of development and expansion the toxic adulteration of this resource has deemed the water as non recyclable so burying it in sealed cans by billions of barrels a year. Toxic buried water is water removed from the environment for eternity and since it is not being replenished the world is dehydrated without any thought of water losses.

    With the ice caps reduced in size one would expect that coastal water levels would rise, instead they have fallen without explanation as the global warming hoax. Population and toxic contamination have dehydrated the environments recycling process.

    The states of the American southwest are going to have to agree on the maximum size of their various cities. The mechanism employed will of course be CENTRAL PLANNING. Contrary to local ideology it is sometimes necessary. Big problems require big solutions.

    Good thing global warming is a Hoax perpetrated by Al Gore or I'd be worried. I'm assured the Earth is actually cooling by nice website I trust.
