Comment Um, but Antarctic LAND ice, on the other hand... (Score 1) 744

The Globe is a big place - and "global warming" implies that the *average* temperature is increasing, not that all points on the globe rise as you suggest. You are correct that sea ice in the southern hemisphere has been increasing, but the *land* ice in Antarctica has not only been decreasing, but has been doing so at an *accelerating* rate... Sea ice anywhere is floating and displaces water. Imagine, for a moment, where there missing land ice in Antarctica is going... in your words, "Uh oh."

I dunno, while the threat is "we'll ban you from Second Life", the constraints on software are darn clear - they want developers to require shrinkwrap EULA to *distribute* downstream derived works, and require developers to assume liability for all downstream developer and user actions. Sounds like GPL conflict to me.
