    Arctic ice cap 'to disappear in future summers'

    The Arctic ice cap will disappear completely in summer months within 20 to 30 years, a polar research team said as they presented findings from an expedition led by adventurer Pen Hadow.
    ...
    "Remove the Arctic ice cap and we are left with a very different and much warmer world," he said.

    Loss of sea ice cover will "set in motion powerful climate feedbacks which will have an impact far beyond the Arctic itself," he added.

    "This could lead to flooding affecting one quarter of the world's population, substantial increases in greenhouse gas emission from massive carbon pools and extreme global weather changes."

    Studies like this prove there is some level of global warming occurring in the world. What isn't proven is if this global warming is due to human interventions or just the natural cycle of the planet.

    It will be interesting to see exactly what effect the melting of the polar ice caps has on world wide weather and if those climate changes can in fact be linked back to he melting.

    There IS a problem with global warming... it stopped in 1998

    For many years now, human-caused climate change has been viewed as a large and urgent problem. In truth, however, the biggest part of the problem is neither environmental nor scientific, but a self-created political fiasco. Consider the simple fact, drawn from the official temperature records of the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia, that for the years 1998-2005 global average temperature did not increase (there was actually a slight decrease, though not at a rate that differs significantly from zero).
    Ignorant people like Al Gore and most every Granold Liberal believe their own hoax.

    Anthropogenic global warming and its believers have been left out in the coldliterallyby a new report issued today by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). According to NOAAs National Climatic Data Center, summer temperatures were far below normal; in fact, the NCDC goes so far as to rank 2009s summer as the 34th coolest on record since 1895. (The report cites temperature data collected from June and August 2009 in the contiguous United States.)

    Among the reports main findings:

    - The average temperature of 71.7 F was 0.4 F degrees below the 20th century average. Also, last summers average temperature was 72.7 F.
    - States such as Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa and Minnesota notched some of their coolest summers ever.
    The Inconvienent Truth is Al Gores Movie was band by hudge in UK unless it is pointed out that there are 11 major lies within it. So if you want to make a point about the hoax of man caused Global Warming learn to read the fascts and truth before you open your mouth. This hoax has nothing to do what ever with Global Warming and everything to do control and putting power in the hands of the Leftists who don't give a damn about the planet.

    ^^^^^ Here we go again.

    It's amazing to me how the same recycled crap makes it's way through. Councilman, you've been had. That article is a piece of misleading garbage.

    BTW, what does the summer of 2009 in the US have to do with global temperatures???

    Interesting. I can't seem to find the "facts" he mentioned in his article. The NOAA website he mentions states the below. for June and August of 2009...

    # The combined global land and ocean average surface temperature for August 2009 was 0.62C (1.12F) above the 20th century average of 15.6C (60.1F). This is the second warmest such value on record, behind 1998. August 2009 was the 31st consecutive August with an average global surface temperature above the 20th century average. The last August with global temperatures below the 20th century average occurred in 1978.
    # The seasonal (June-August 2009) worldwide ocean surface temperature was also the warmest on record, 0.58C (1.04F) above the 20th century average of 16.4C (61.5F).
    # In the Southern Hemisphere, both the August 2009 average temperature for land areas, and the Hemisphere as a whole (land and ocean surface combined), represented the warmest August on record.

    State of the Climate | Global Analysis | August 2009

    That's quite a contradiction from what the article writer says the report states.


    In any case before you go jump off a cliff with your Gore/Liberal hyperbole I personally believe any warming and cooling is not of affected by human intervention and is just a natural cycle of the planet.

    I have been waiting for a long time to have a rational discussion of how much/little the warming is caused by man. Unfortunately, it seems that we can't get past those who ignore the simple fact that the planet is warming, and have been debating that instead.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Misleading is that Kanuckstani Hockey Stick model; you know, the one that spewed the same catastrophic result regardless of the numbers inserted.

    Misleading is the report NASA had corrected by a 13-year old.
    The one that said the last decade was the warmest. Wrong... for that you now have to go to the 1930's.

    Misleading is ALgore, and his Michael Moore styled movie.
    The one people can't ask questions about, but the schools have no trouble force feeding malleable minds.

    They had record early snow in Idaho, Chicago, Austria, Bavaria, ...and Colorado got some too. I really wish global warming would accelerate a little... Am doing my part... working daily to have a carbon footprint as big as ALgore.

    Reminds me to have staff call Execujet.

    The world is warming. All of the above does not negate the fact that the world is warming.

    Period.
