    How about the glaciers in Chile (the country, not the pepper) ?

    Hmmmmm...

    Shouldn't there already be a post with the link to the research of Svante Arrhenius in this thread?

    Oh Hell!

    The Carbon Dioxide Greenhouse Effect

    In 1896 Svante Arrhenius calculated the effect of a doubling atmospheric carbon dioxide to be an increase in surface temperatures of 5-6 degrees Celsius.

    You are obviously mistaken. When confronted by a departure of reality from model, we know that we are to ignore reality and stick with the models.

    Don't you know anything about science?

    Arctic Sea Ice News and Analysis

    On March 18, 2012, Arctic sea ice extent reached its annual maximum extent, marking the beginning of the melt season for Northern Hemisphere sea ice. This year’s maximum extent was the ninth lowest in the satellite record.

    Fucking tard. This was from the link where you got your picture. Do you know how to read? Did you think we wouldn't look? Dumbass.

    A Lot better then you! I've spent the last 20 years watching Meterology and other things to do with our planet. Seriously as I've spent my life on those boards...Of course I can read the maps. I also understand the context!. Theres a big difference in the regimes between the 1990's and early 2000's and the sprial from hell post 2005...We're now back to the 1990's to early 2000's. Big difference...The last few years have been so utterly close that getting 9th isn't hard with the short period of records.

    This is a pretty big deal as this ice will now start to reinforce its self. The death sprial very likely has stopped.

    I know that only 6% of scientists are Republicans.

    Every time I read one of your posts I wonder what % of Democrats are rude, inconsiderate ignoramuses with no concept of rational thought or courteous discourse.

    This is a good recovery of sea ice extant this year. Unfortunately, it is only single year ice. This extent of the ice melt this summer will determine if we have actually seen any recovery of ice. But even this little is a good thing.

    We will see what the melt is this summer, and what the clathrates do off the East Siberian Artic Shelf. We need a low melt, and a much lower outgassing than last year. We get a high melt, and an increase in that outgassing, then this winters freeze simply was an anolomy from a double La Nina.
