Does it surprise anyone that rain melts ice?

The last quote in the article is what made me post this: "And I became convinced - only by being there and seeing it with my own eyes - that rain is just as important as strong sunny days in melting the Greenland ice sheet."

No it wasn't. That was just my take on the last paragraph of the article.

Nor is it surprising that climate changes, it's been happening since the beginning of time.
Going green only means taking care of our earth like our grandparents did and taught us to do. The problem is that the likes of Gore has found a way to line his pockets and those like him. It is disgusting and we are the ones who have to pay for their air fouling jets while we are told to walk or bike everywhere.

There once was a climate-change Prof,
At whose findings I'm minded to scoff.
"In Greenland, the rain
On the ice raises Cain."
But the study is short-term, cough, cough.
