    Serious question Abraham. Do you deny that the earth is in the process of exiting an ice age?

    I agree that we are late in the term of an ice age, given historical behavior. Why?

    What;s the matter abraham, can't bring yourself to engage in some straight talk. Is the earth or is it not exiting an ice age....not to be confused with interglacial periods?

    I don't believe we know the details of an ice age's progression with enough detail to state that conditions over the last 150 years give us certainty that the ice age is ending. The Milankovitch cycles aren't going to do anything for a good long while and the long term TSI trend seems to be downward. And, besides, why would I do anything to cooperate with you?

    Why don't you simply get to your point? Are you having trouble getting there without me?

    So what you are saying is that you don't know whether the earth is exiting an ice age or not? Interesting. And I have no problem getting to my point. There is a certain entertainment factor in watching you do your silly dance rather than simply state what you think.

    Hell of a thing to be so sure about AGW and unable to state whether or not the earth is exiting an ice age. Are you saying that climate science remains unsure about something as large and obvious as that?

    I'm saying that I don't feel like playing childish games with you. You say you've got no problem getting to your point, but you haven't gotten there yet. Did you perhaps forget what it was?

    So you deny that the earth is in the process of exiting an ice age....or you are unsure as to whether the earth is exiting an ice age....or perhaps you are unsure of what an ice age is.

    In any event, your waffling over a straight forward question identifies you for what you truly are. Congratulations.

    Your OP is a childish game. Your high priests claimed that there would be NO ICE in the Arctic by 2013. Looks like they were wrong. The last I heard the Arctic ice was in a "death spiral".

    All I see is a lot of hyperbole and so much ice cover at the North Pole that you couldn't do this today....Imagine that, waaaaaay back in 1987 three subs surfaced at the North pole.

    This was 1986

    Or how about 1962?

    Or how about 1959?

    This is the USS Honolulu about 300 miles form the North Pole once again back in the 80's....I love the Polar Bears....
