In Stossel's new book, he put together a little section (in four parts) on global warming. Very practical and no where near alarmist. Even though he gives concern, he appears optimistic. I found one part quite interesting. Here's the paragraph:

But Dr. Patrick Michaels, author of the Association of American Geographers' 2003 Climate Paper of the Year, points out that melting Arctic ice won't raise sea levels any more than the melting of ice in your drink makes your glass overflow. "The Artic ice cap is just floating ice...if it's not a land mass adding to water."

Wow (at least when I read it). It is perfectly logical, and I never really thought about it like that. It makes sense. He then goes on to talk about Greenland, Norway, Russia and their glaciers that aren't melting.
