    Antarctic ice volume measured

    A detailed analysis of data compiled during 50 years of exploration shows the White Continent to contain about 26-and-a-half-million cubic km.

    It is a colossal volume, and to put that in some sort of context: if this ice was all converted to liquid water, it would be sufficient to raise the height of the world's oceans by 58m.

    These numbers come out of an international project known as Bedmap2.

    This large cooperative effort - involving 60 scientists from 35 institutions based in 14 countries - has sought to put tighter constraints on some of Antarctica's fundamental statistics.

    Not a sunrise, but a galaxy rise
    A morning filled with 400 billion suns
    The rising of the milky way"

    If we do not destroy ourselves
    We will one day venture to the stars" -Carl Sagan

    I guess it will take the stubborn and ignorant until they are 58m beneath current sea levels until they accept that global warming is real.
