Letter: Simple experiment refutes sea level rise

Editor, Gazette-Journal:

Few of us have escaped seeing glaciers melting followed by the ominous threat that as a result the oceans will rise and we will be washed out to sea unless we give full commitment to the theory that this is a result of man-made global warming.

But that is a false premise easily refuted by a simple scientific experiment anyone could do in their own kitchen. With a few ice cubes, fill a glass with water. Leave it at room temperature and let the ice cubes melt. You will observe that no additional water is produced and the water level does not rise.

Too bad someone didn’t figure that out before the spending of billions of dollars in implementing radical green environmentalism, which threatens our way of life.
