Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
First they ignore you
Then they laugh at you
Then they fight you
Then the West Antarctic Ice Shelf melts
Then you win

correction? seems to me more like

Then the West Antarctic Ice Shelf melts
Then we all lose

and the melt rate is, so I hear, astonishing and frightening the folks who monitor it.  yet another case of "our previous predictions were clearly far too optimistic and we never thought we'd see this amount of damage in our lifetimes, blah blah."  (I am getting almost inured to reading this kind of report summary, which is in itself a very bad sign.)
