    ABSTRACT
    We investigate changes in total water equivalent mass, land-surface temperature and atmospheric CO2 by satellite-based measurements from Au-gust 2002 through December 2008. Our region of interest spans 75° to 165°E and 50° to 80°N centered on the Lena River watershed as a phy- sical reference frame. We find energy and mass changes on the continuous and discontinuous permafrost zones indicating: 1) Arctic uplands such as the Siberian Plateau show strongly posi- tive water equivalent mass and strongly nega-tive land-surface temperature gradients during May months. 2) Arctic lowlands such as the thaw-lake regions of Kolyma, Lena Delta, and Taymyr show strongly negative water equivalent mass and strongly positive land-surface tem-perature gradients during September months. 3) Areas with strongly positive water equivalent mass and negative land-surface temperature gradients during May months have weakly posi-tive CO2 gradients 4) Areas with strongly nega-tive water equivalent mass and strongly positive land-surface temperature gradients during Sep- tember months have strongly positive CO2 gra-dients. This indicates that continuous and dis-continuous permafrost ecosystem responses are correlated in phase with energy and mass changes over the period. The Laptev and East Siberia Sea have increasing trends of CO2 at-mosphere concentration 2.23 ± 0.15 ppm/yr and 2.40 ± 0.21 ppm/yr, respectively. Increasing trends and strong positive gradients of CO2 atmosphere concentration during Aprils-Mays are evidence that the Arctic Ocean is a strong emitter of CO2 during springtime lead formation. We hypnotize that the increasing CO2 from land and ocean regions is from permafrost thawing and degra-dation and ecosystem microbial activity.

    Observations from real scientists, not computer models or the rants of undegreed charlatans. The entire text is available at the site.

    More "Conspiracy Theory".

    Even Obama has abandoned you. :D

    the only ones who are alarmed are the global warming cult members like you.

    Obama has always been where he is, fiscally conservative, socially moderate and politically right of center.

    And the measure of how far to the extreme right that many on this board are, is that they consider him to be communist. Of course, they would now say the same about Bill Buckley.

    And Reagan, and Nixon, and both Bushes..., in many, if not most respects, all of these are to the left of Obama politically.
