It seems that the melting polar ice is becoming more of a concern to Alaskans than those of us in the lower 48.

Thank goodness there's no Global Warming -- imagine how much more of Alaska would be melting if there was!

Of course the icecaps have to melt to spread the water from time to time back to the rest of the world.

Otherwise we'd end up like Mars. There once was water flow on Mars. But over the centuries all the water that ever came in contact with the polar icecap became frozen and locked away, never to return, because its polar icecaps never melt.

Today Mars is just one giant rocky desert. All the water is locked away at the poles, thanks to non-melting glaciers at the poles.
