A link to the article on Daily Mail.  Daily Mail - Ice melts in Greenland  There is a nice NASA picture of change in global temperature from 1884 to 2018.

It's just so hard to tell if there is anything to this whole climate change thing...

So that's around 10 trillion liters. Which is about 5 liters per square meter.

That's about like spreading a gallon of water over ten square feet. I'd barely notice.

The article says that one warm day recently just caused global ocean levels to rise 0.5mm.  One day's worth of melting.  Granted it was a hot day.

One of the theories is that the little ice age in Europe was caused by a sudden melting of greenland ice causing freshwater to suppress the saltwater current that makes Europe warm.

Just saying...

That would be okay if water was nice enough to stay perfectly evenly dispersed and not move around so darned much 😁
