Scientists Cut Greenland Ice Loss Estimate By Half 414

bonch writes "A new study on Greenland's and West Antarctica's rate of ice loss halves the estimate of ice loss. Published in the journal Nature Geoscience, the study takes into account a rebounding of the Earth's crust called glacial isostatic adjustment, a continuing rise of the crust after being smashed under the weight of the Ice Age. 'We have concluded that the Greenland and West Antarctica ice caps are melting at approximately half the speed originally predicted,' said researcher Bert Vermeeersen."

>>Indians themselves have killed more Indians than outsiders ever did

Even if true, what will that prove?

I could say that Westerners themselves have killed more Westerners than anyone (killing 6 million Jews and a few million soldiers in the World Wars).
Muslim upon Muslim violence has also led to more Muslims being killed by Muslims than by non-Muslims.

Your view of life is quite unidimensional and doesn't take into account day-to-day routine acts of people living together.
