    We've all seen and heard the conservative dupes and their knee jerk reactions to any climate change science. They quote science of their own or most often they deny the scientific community's agreed upon analysis...but why? Why and how are our conservative friends duped?

    I hate to sound like a conspiratist, but how does a climate change denier spell O-I-L?

    Arctic Sea Ice Vanishes — and the Oil Rigs Move In

    As Arctic sea ice melts to its lowest level on record, oil companies move in to begin drilling the far north.

    Could the conservative dupes we all know be this easy? It appears they have been used time and time again for larger purposes having nothing to do with ideology or science -- it's profit. Profit.

    :eusa_shhh: Don't tell anyone but the low sea ice extent was do to a really powerful storm that broke up the sea ice. Since then it is growing at record levels...And as you can see in the photo of the three subs at the North Pole back in 1987....that won't be happening again any time soon.

    But don't tell anyone OK...

    Climate Extremes: Arctic Sea Ice Melts to Record Low - Climate ...

    Arctic sea ice has melted to its lowest level since record-keeping began in 1979, the ... Outdated models, anywhere from 20-30 years old, predicted that the arctic ...

    Claim: global warming causes Arctic ice to melt and Antarctic ice to increase - Wry Heat

    Within just a few days in September, Arctic sea ice extent reached the lowest minimum ever recorded by satellites since 1979, while at the same time, Antarctic sea ice reached the greatest extent ever recorded.

    Ending Its Summer Melt, Arctic Sea Ice Sets a New Low That Leads to Warnings

    http://www.nytimes.com/2012/09/20/s...-stops-melting-but-new-record-low-is-set.html

    The apparent low point for 2012 was reached Sunday, according to the National Snow and Ice Data Center, which said that sea ice that day covered about 1.32 million square miles, or 24 percent, of the surface of the Arctic Ocean. The previous low, set in 2007, was 29 percent.

    When satellite tracking began in the late 1970s, sea ice at its lowest point in the summer typically covered about half the Arctic Ocean, but it has been declining in fits and starts over the decades.

    A record low in 2007 of 4.17m sq km was broken on 27 August 2012; further melting has since amounted to more than 500,000 sq km.

    That's excellent news! We can always use more oil.

    Ahhh, but I'm a liberal environmentalist who doesn't perticularly like Big Oil, I like the wild-catters, but not Big Oil. I'm also a scientist and the crap that you have posted is just that...crap.

    And I noticed you didn't address the picture..why is that....imbecile?

    imbecile alert indeed.

    did you bother reading your links? from the second one-
    the article was about how climate science and climate models were and are wrong about sea ice extent at both poles.
