I'm sure Basosz is as passionate as many....but, perhaps a bit over the top in an early debate....
Icebergs are not the problem. Land locked fresh water in the form of ice is, and that's the problem. For one to say there is no global warming then I say prove it. I am convinced it is happening and as the scientists state via measured land locked ice melting, it's going to be a problem. How much, don't know, don't feel the water to rise that much but it will change the eco-system....but what do I know.
Most of the land locked fresh water comprises most of all fresh water in the world. Mixed with salts etc. it will, expand a bit, but even if it expanded twice the amount, not sure where that'll go.
I believe beyond the water issue, which IS huge, in terms of lacking enought to go around for all, EVENLY, that warming in general and poor use of old technology, i.e. combustion stuff, is NOT the way to continue. Much better to make the switch to other, more expensive, now, technology, and save the combustion stuff for the one-off items, like expensive cars, BBQs, and oil for lubricants or plastics that last a hundred years.
