[Homestead] Global Warming?

Almost all liquids and gasses expand in volume when the temperature goes up
(given a constant pressure). Water is extremely unusable in that there is
a narrow temperature range where the volume of water decreases with
decreasing temp. (i.e., the density decreases). When the ocean
temperatures increase slightly about this range, the volume increases,
leading to sea level rise.

Hey, if you come across anything about that Norweign village that was
located under glacier ice, let me know....
As I was skimming thru that UN proposal on Climate Change Treaty, I kept
seeing references to 3rd world countries, especially those that have low
lying coastal areas and islands, receiving monetary aid from the developed
countries. This implied to me that they think they are going to lose coastal
areas and be buried under water.
Of course, the first thing that popped to mind was.... an ice cube tray. I
don't know about everyone else's ice cube trays, but when I fill mine right
smack to the top, when it turns to ice the ice is higher than the water
was........ leading me to conclude that water expands when frozen, and
contracts when melting. Is this somehow different in the ocean? If not, then
it is yet another scam being perpetrated on US taxpayers..........
