Now they say Antarctic ice melting will change the Earth's gravity. You cannot get much more ignorant than that.
From the London Daily Mail:
The Earth's gravity depends on its mass. Water does not lose mass when it shifts from a solid to a liquid, and vice versa.The Antarctic ice sheet in a previously stable part of the frozen continent is thinning at a rate that has added more than 300 trillion liters of water to the surrounding ocean in the past six years.Scientists have expressed alarm at the rate of ice loss at the Southern Antarctic Peninsula, which had shown no signs of change until 2009, when it started suffering rapid destabilization.Now new research has revealed that glaciers along the peninsula have been melting at accelerating rates, causing the mass of ice there to reduce.The loss of ice in the region is so large that it has caused the gravitation field of the Earth to change, according to some measurements conducted by scientists.
