Antarctic warming[edit]

I have undone the addition on Antarctic warming by Phanly. This is for two reasons. Firstly, at present it does not fit into the page well. The Antarctic ice sheet includes the west antarctic ice sheet so a new section is confusing. This is a more general page on ice sheets and it is not at its current state useful to add this sort of detail. Phanly has added this same text to several articles, some where it fits better. Secondly the quality of the addition is poor. The citations/references have no style and need a large amount of work and all four of them (added multiple times and not joined) reference the same study by Eric Steig but in different ways including his biog and a blog. As good as this study is, it is no good throwing in 4 references to try to make it look like some sort of wide consensus when it is really one study. I am not against this addition in wikipedia. In fact I spent some time on the Antarctic Ice Sheet page improving the referencing that Phanly had added. Polargeo (talk) 08:58, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

Thanks Polargeo. I have followed your criticisms and inserted a simple single sentence and copied the Nature reference you greatly improved. Cheers dinghy (talk) 05:27, 30 January 2009 (UTC)

Changed link[edit]

I changed the link for "the Weichselian ice sheet". It was previously pointed at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wisconsin_glaciation which seemed to me to be a mistake. Bj norge (talk) 18:33, 13 June 2011 (UTC)
