    The present amount of ice in the Arctic Ocean is 3.155 square kilometers. The lowest, in 2007 was at about day 251, it is now day 231. In 2007, the lowest figure for the ice was 2.91 square kilometers. So we have only about 100,000 square kilometers to go before eclipsing that record. And by the looks of the curve here, we will blow right by it.

    Orthodox Marxism blames Capitalism for environmental problems. This group would promote Science and Technological development for the sake of mastering nature.

    Just like you do.

    That's right, CrazyF*ck, the ice in the Arctic is indeed melting because of manmake global warming.

    I'm curious to see just what wacky denier cult nonsense you'll come up with this time in your endless and entirely futile attempts to deny reality.

    You got any real proof of this manmake global warming thing?

    Keeps going down. I'm not sure if it is natural or man made, but to be safe, maybe we should start arguing for nuclear power to cut our emissions? They can argue for renewables and we both meet in the middle with a workable energy infrastructure.

    This way we can have a grid that can work with our economy. This melting in the arctic is getting scary. :eusa_eh: This might not be bull shit, but we better damn well demand a set up that's economical.

    Maybe you should tell me just what an anti-science, dead-ignorant denier cult retard like you would consider to be "real proof" of anything?

    BTW, there are no such things as "real proofs" in science.

    In real science, about the best they can do is demonstrated that a preponderance of evidence supports a theory; that there is no evidence that would falsify the theory; and that there are no viable alternative theories that can explain the evidence.

    All of that has happened with the theory of anthropogenic global warming/climate change which is why it is accepted by the vast majority of scientists worldwide. The laws of physics and vast amounts of hard evidence and data support the theory. There are no alternative theories that hold water that can explain the current abrupt warming trend.
