When will Antarctica finally finish melting?

    Some of Antarctica has been frozen for about 25 million years, and the geological evidence has that initial glaciation dating perhaps as far back as more than 40 million years, so I wouldn't worry about it completely deicing even on the scale of tens of thousands of years.

    That is, Antarctica started icing up even when the global earth was still way hotter than today or even anything that the AGW folks claim could happen.

    This is not to say that a good load of that ice could not melt. Just that the continent will still be glaciated in part for the foreseeable time-span of humanity.

    Centuries to melt COMPLETELY, if it ever does. It's pretty cold there! BUT, this prediction from my source is alarming:

    "If the world continues to burn greenhouse gases unabated, following the worst-case scenario, the authors predict that the two ice sheets will add about 10 inches to the world’s oceans by 2100."
