In the Seattle Times, a science teacher marvels. A snippet; read the rest and weep:
In geography classes we teach that Antarctica is a continent with a vast ice cap. According to a member of the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology, it is a gargantuan floating ice cube. Therefore it will not affect rising sea levels as it melts. Besides, we have to keep an open mind on that, regardless of the evidence.
I reckon that, if your mind is open enough, stuff just falls right through it.
