Antarctic ice is melting

The Antarctic ice sheet is losing mass, according to scientists using data from a pair of satellites orbiting the globe. This is the first time scientists have been able to survey the entire ice blanket. The study confirms prior studies that the sheet is melting.

The Bush Administration, in apparently contradictory actions, simultaneously said the melting ice cap was due to Islamist terrorists, then attacked the scientists for “hating democracy and wanting to destroy free enterprise.” When challenged by a reporter on this, White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan said “you’re on the no-fly list now, commie boy.”
