A new look at the melting of Greenland's ice sheet more than 115,000 years ago reveals that even though the climate was much warmer than today's, the ice was only a few hundred feet thinner than in modern times.
Given that sea level was also much higher during this long-ago period, the findings mean that Antarctica must have experienced major melt to boost the oceans. These results could hint at what's to come in today's warming world, the researchers report Thursday (Jan. 24) in the journal Nature.
"Even though the warm Eemian period was a period when the oceans were 4 to 8 meters higher than today, the ice sheet in northwest Greenland was only a few hundred meters lower than the current level, which indicates that the contribution from the Greenland ice sheet was less than half the total sea-level rise during that period," study researcher Dorthe Dahl-Jensen of the University of Copenhagen said in a statement.

drat.. 126,000 year old ice confirms global varming before man put the pedal down.
Man is such an arrogant being.......for a price. Global warming always was and always will be....Man is miniscule.
Those Neanderthal SUV’s created much more pollution than the Obama-Cars of today.
The car seats six, but Fred still drove it alone to work.
The first sentence says ‘a few hundred feet’ while the third paragraph says ‘a few hundred meters’. I can’t read past that...
What they don’t tell you is that catalytic converters are really time machines that dump the CO2 from vehicles into the pat and THAT is why we are seeing historical globull warming.
So if only America would lower it’s standard of living and pay third world dictators it would fix everything right?
Todays melting was driven by CO2 emissions. The last melting wasn’t. Yeh. CO2 just happens to be the gas the leftist frauds hung their anti american political hats on and then had to COOK THE BOOKS when the data didn’t support their agenda. Until they explain why HIDE THE DECLINE was used in any so called scientific study they have ZERO CREDIBILITY
damn those SUVs and livestock farts anyway.. drat.. 126,000 year old ice confirms global varming before man put the pedal down.>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Which is why Al Gorp got out while his man made global warming grift was still good, and also why he drove autos and owned homes that had huge carbon foot prints.
The whole bunch of whiney ,government genuflecting Global Warming ass hats remind me of the prohibition movement. Everyone was dry for a moment in history and then went back to their glasses of ale and whiskey, thank goodness for that.
Al Gore as Carrie Nation. a fanatic Bingo!
It was warmer in those days, and every living thing died. Which is why there are no life forms today anywhere on the surface of the earth. (snicker)
You gotta admire those Neanderthals.
They had to do it all with farts instead of SUV's.
Their motto: We're the Fartin' Fools.
