    Polar Ice May Be Gone in 5 Years, Al Gore Says in Copenhagan - Sphere News

    I Distinctly Remember algore Predicting the End of the North Cap's Ice by 2012*.

    (*This is a Prediction that Ice in the Summer would be gone, because of course, Aside from the Perception that is Attempting to be Created, Ice at the Caps is NOT going away Permanently Year-Round by any Means.)

    So in 5 Years when I continue to NOT Give a Shit about algore's Frothing and Hopefully there hasn't been Legislation Created to Further Cripple our Economy Based on said Frothing, will the Libs who Pray at this Shrine start to Concede?...

    Will they Admit that this is Crap?...

    Will they Look South and Offer an Explanation of that Expansion of Ice, or continue to Conveniently Ignore it?...

    Could they Possibily Entertain the Concept that the Expansion in the South might be Tied the Retraction in the North?

    Will they EVER Honestly Deal with the History of Greenland:

    Decline of the Vikings in Iceland - Influence of Dramatic Climate Shifts on European Civilizations: The Rise and Fall of the Vikings and the Little Ice Age

    ^An Example of MANY...

    Was it the US Automobile Manufacturer and Big Fat Bald White Oil that Warmed Greenland up back then for the Vikings?...

    I am so Fucking Tired of these Paranoid Liberals and their Blind Faith in the Simplistic Rantings of algore and others that I am Running out of ways to Express it.

    Anyway, the End is in 2015 or 2017 or whatever...

    Global Temps have NOT Warmed in a Decade and a Decade is PIN DROP in the History of this Rock.

    Just 30 to 40 Years ago some of these same "Experts" were Predicting the Next Ice Age if we didn't Change our ways...

    Seriously, it's time to Stop being either Dishonest or Ignorant on this Issue.

    The Sky is NOT Falling and Man's Contribution to ANY of this "Climate Change" is Insignificant when Compared to the Sun... End of Fucking List.

    Carry on.

    :)

    peace...

    Then again it may not. That Al, giving himself the wiggle room he so loves so in 2015 or 2017 or whenever he can once again claim "In xx years blah, blah, blah MAY be gone" . . . . again.

    When I was a kid there was a family next door to us, the Boyds. Jeff was the youngest. He was a character, he used to ride his seatless bike down the street yelling "Hi, Nance" to my mom. Anyway, he was always, always, always the kid who would say "just one more time, okay, just one more time. Just one more chance, no really, this time I mean it, it'll be the last time, for real" The Goricale reminds me of this kid. Regardless of what was written in stone and oh so sure xx years ago. . . . they were wrong but this time . . just one more time, just one more chance . . . this time it's for real. Can't we inflate him with helium and float him in a parade? Wait, he's already full of hot air . . . let's just float him.

    That's an interesting concept... OwlGore perceptively pleading for US to grant him five more YEARS of his rhetoric...

    Can WE endure it? -Or- will he be brushed aside long before then?

    As a matter of course he reamins full of feces. He cannot PROVE any of this. OWLGORE is NOT a Scientist...but rather latches on to things that he HOPES will give him POWER.

    Of course the above ignoramouses will ignore real scientists such as these.

    We present our best estimate of the thickness and volume of the Arctic Ocean ice cover from 10 Ice, Cloud, and land Elevation Satellite (ICESat) campaigns that span a 5-year period between 2003 and 2008. Derived ice drafts are consistently within 0.5 m of those from a submarine cruise in mid-November of 2005 and 4 years of ice draft profiles from moorings in the Chukchi and Beaufort seas. Along with a more than 42% decrease in multiyear (MY) ice coverage since 2005, there was a remarkable thinning of ∼0.6 m in MY ice thickness over 4 years. In contrast, the average thickness of the seasonal ice in midwinter (∼2 m), which covered more than two-thirds of the Arctic Ocean in 2007, exhibited a negligible trend. Average winter sea ice volume over the period, weighted by a loss of ∼3000 km3 between 2007 and 2008, was ∼14,000 km3. The total MY ice volume in the winter has experienced a net loss of 6300 km3 (>40%) in the 4 years since 2005, while the first-year ice cover gained volume owing to increased overall area coverage. The overall decline in volume and thickness are explained almost entirely by changes in the MY ice cover. Combined with a large decline in MY ice coverage over this short record, there is a reversal in the volumetric and areal contributions of the two ice types to the total volume and area of the Arctic Ocean ice cover. Seasonal ice, having surpassed that of MY ice in winter area coverage and volume, became the dominant ice type. It seems that the near-zero replenishment of the MY ice cover after the summers of 2005 and 2007, an imbalance in the cycle of replenishment and ice export, has played a significant role in the loss of Arctic sea ice volume over the ICESat record.

    Doing even the most basic study of the state of the polar ice reveals the previous posters to be liars and dolts of the first magnitude.:lol:

    New NASA Satellite Survey Reveals Dramatic Arctic Sea Ice Thinning - NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory

    July 07, 2009

    PASADENA, Calif. - Arctic sea ice thinned dramatically between the winters of 2004 and 2008, with thin seasonal ice replacing thick older ice as the dominant type for the first time on record. The new results, based on data from a NASA Earth-orbiting spacecraft, provide further evidence for the rapid, ongoing transformation of the Arctic's ice cover.

    Scientists from NASA and the University of Washington in Seattle conducted the most comprehensive survey to date using observations from NASA's Ice, Cloud and land Elevation Satellite, known as ICESat, to make the first basin-wide estimate of the thickness and volume of the Arctic Ocean's ice cover. Ron Kwok of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., led the research team, which published its findings July 7 in the Journal of Geophysical Research-Oceans.

    If AL GORE is right I won't be able to say this anymore:

    Al is batting 1000 so far, wrong on every count !!

    Come back when NASA gets done with their lawsuit.
