Major sea level rise likely as Antarctic ice meltsDr. Roger Pielke, Sr., who authors the blog Climate Science, points out that ... "the seas offshore.. much of the contienent are actually colder than average; see http://www.osdpd.noaa.gov/

Sea levels are likely to rise by about 1.4m (4ft 6in) globally by 2100 as polar ice melts, according to a major review of climate change in Antarctica.
Conducted by the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR), it says that warming seas are accelerating melting in the west of the continent.
Ozone loss has cooled the region, it says, shielding it from global warming.
Rising temperatures in the Antarctic Peninsula are making life suitable for invasive species on land and sea.
The report - Antarctic Climate Change and the Environment - was written using contributions from 100 leading scientists in various disciplines, and reviewed by a further 200.
Sorry, Dr. Pielke, but you want to address this rationally using facts. That's the old scientific approach. The new way is to get some friends together, give yourself an slick acronym like SCAR[E] and see how long it takes to freeze your butts off on an ice continent. Anything longer than a minute indicates global warming.
