The HUGE effect of losing arctic ice cover is the albedo change. It goes from reflecting 90% (?) of solar energy to absorbing 90% (?) of solar energy.I have seen that, but I am not confident that the results of this will be linear, maybe it is the noise that someone else was talking about, but a rise in cloud cover, especially in the tropics vice the arctic should have an significant offsetting effect. (At when I have flown over them, the clouds have been very reflective.)A few inches rise in sea level would add a VERY SMALL amount to total sea areaI suppose this is correct, but how much more sea area will we have at a foot rise, and with that sea area evaporating more, how much more moisture will be pumped through the climate.It just seems to me, that eventually we could end up with a warmer, milder, wetter climate due to increased global cloud cover.CheersQazulight
