UPDATED AND BUMPED:

Melting Antarctic Ice Is Causing an Actual Shift in Gravity

"Gravity—yes, gravity—is the latest victim of climate change in Antarctica. That's the stunning conclusion announced Friday by the European Space Agency.

"The loss of ice from West Antarctica between 2009 and 2012 caused a dip in the gravity field over the region," writes the ESA, whose GOCE satellite measured the change. Apparently, melting billions of tons of ice year after year has implications that would make even Isaac Newton blanch."
BWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! They're getting desperate.

But wait. There's more:

Antarctic sea ice hit 35-year record high Saturday


Extent of Antarctic sea ice reaches record levels, scientists say


Climate change is getting worse. So why is Antarctica’s sea ice expanding?

Study Says Climate Change Could Be Detrimental to Male Fetuses
"A Japanese researcher has taken a look at how temperature fluctuations attributed to climate change affect the sex ratio of infants, and has found that male fetuses are more vulnerable to extreme weather events, resulting in an increased female-to-male ratio."

Climate change doesn’t follow the rules
"New research suggests the drier-gets-drier and 
wet-becomes-wetter rule of thumb is broken.

The simplified formula, based on models and observations, is inaccurate most of the time, a team of climate researchers suggests in Nature Geoscience.

An evaluation of trends in specific regions’ humidity and dryness by researchers with the Zurich-based Institute for Atmospheric and Climate Science found no clear trends towards a drier or wetter climate across three-quarters of the land area studied. There were solid trends in the remaining quarter. However, only half of that surface area followed the DDWW principle.

Some regions which should have become wetter, according to the simple DDWW formula, have actually become drier in the past — this includes parts of the Amazon, Central America, tropical Africa and Asia. On the other hand, there are dry areas that have become wetter: parts of Patagonia, central Australia and the Midwestern United States."
Oops!

Phoney messenger for climate change

"Recently, Leonardo DiCaprio addressed the UN on climate change and was introduced to the spellbound delegates as an “ambassador of peace.”

He had a Castro-like beard with hair combed tightly back and knotted like a golf ball. He started apologetically saying, “I am only an actor playing fictitious roles” and soon followed with the all-too-familiar mantra of “droughts are intensifying, oceans are acidifying, none of this is rhetoric, none of this is hysteria, it is a fact,” etc.

It is also not fictitious that he just happens to own two apartments in New York, mansions in Palm Springs, Hollywood, and rented for the 2014 World Cup the Topaz, described as the fifth largest yacht in the world, from an Arab billionaire oil tycoon.

This year, he flew all over only about 30 times in private jets. Even the legendary Al Gore, the so-called inventor of the Internet and global warming, must be eye-rolling at Leo’s frugal eco-friendly lifestyle."
And I can hardly wait for this:

My intermittent cold/hot flashes - it it somehow caused by reading too much on the subject?
