A wonderfully articulate AC froths:

Bullshit, there is MORE FUCKING ICE NOW, IT IS NOT GETTING WARMER.

Oh, and I remember HOW FUCKING COLD IT WAS LAST WINTER.

Go fuck yourself sideways with a barbed wire wrapped pineapple and keep your fucking hands off of my money you fraud big government nanny state lemming.

An easy (simplistic, and not entirely satisfactory) explanation of increased sea ice in the Antarctic: Increased collapse of land-based ice into the sea contributes both to increased area of sea ice and rising sea level. There are other factors; scientists are indeed working on that.

Weather extremes and unusual seasons are precisely what can be expected in the coming years. Even small regional changes in temperature can lead to considerably increased instability in weather patterns. That can include increased sea ice in Antarctica, as well as a "fucking cold" winter in the US (or at least parts of it).

Regarding your tone, and the rest: it's not even worth going into; you're doing just fine expressing your level of thoughtfulness and social responsibility, and representing the contrarian climatology "science".

> He got two, the third strangled him. So three people dead, one in jail for life (I hope) ... which probably would not have happened if he had not had a gun.

It still would have happened, but the only death would have been his.

Possibly, but probably more likely is the burglars tell him not to move, and he sits quietly while they take his stuff, then they leave and he calls the police and his insurance company.

One of the big problems with the pro-vaccine argument is that 99% of the time all vaccines get lumped into a single entity when all vaccines are most certainly not created equal.

That's one of the big problems with the anti-vaxers, too: the false belief that one vaccine causes autism gets extended to a false belief that all vaccines cause autism, or other bad things.
