The point you're trying to make, and the point he's trying to make, are the same. He seems to have said it better. It's not about "rising above the top of the glass" (you can do that with floatation), it's about the ice that's sitting on something solid rather than floating. I also question your volumetrics but that's another problem. So...I'm not him, he's not me, but I'm still interested in unbiased research on this topic that I can read. And I'm still not getting any pointers. So I'm still treating the same as the "coming ice age" hype of the 1970s.
