    Good site, good info. Thanks. I think the graphs speak volumes and demonstrate the decline in sea ice unmistakably. Of course these deranged, delusional denier cultists who troll this forum will fail to comprehend them and/or come up with a breathtakingly stupid, paranoid conspiracy theory to explain them away. Their ability to deny the reality in front of their faces is awesomely insane and occasionally hilarious.

    Now provide some real evidence man caused any of it. SO far we are told CO2 caused it. yet scientific fact is that historically rising CO2 FOLLOWS rising temperatures not the other way around. Further the CO2 has continued to rise since 1998 and there has been NO increase in temperature for the Earth.

    LMAO..............indeed...............and one nice big volcano eruption PWNS anything man has done in the last 125 years!!!!!!!!!!!

    Do volcanoes emit more CO2 than humans?



    PWNS!!!!!!!

    LMAO 2; kook and RGS make Old Rocks prescient: "Of course these deranged, delusional denier cultists who troll this forum will fail to comprehend them and/or come up with a breathtakingly stupid, paranoid conspiracy theory to explain them away.

    It the Antarctic melting too? I mean it would be weird if only the Arctic were melting due to "Global" Warming, right? Isn't Global Warming a global phenomenon?

    Where's the data for the Antarctic?

    And how come the Maldives aren't underwater as a result of this imaginary ice loss

    "Let me summarize a few facts.

    (1) In the last 2000 years, sea level has oscillated with 5 peaks reaching 0.6 to 1.2 m above the present sea level.

    (2) From 1790 to 1970 sea level was about 20 cm higher than today

    (3) In the 1970s, sea level fell by about 20 cm to its present level

    (4) Sea level has remained stable for the last 30 years, implying that there are no traces of any alarming on-going sea level rise.

    (5) Therefore, we are able to free the Maldives (and the rest of low-lying coasts and island around the globe) from the condemnation of becoming flooded in the near future."

    NASA - Is Antarctica Melting?

    Meanwhile, measurements from the Grace satellites confirm that Antarctica is losing mass 11. Isabella Velicogna of JPL and the University of California, Irvine, uses Grace data to weigh the Antarctic ice sheet from space. Her work shows that the ice sheet is not only losing mass, but it is losing mass at an accelerating rate. "The important message is that it is not a linear trend. A linear trend means you have the same mass loss every year. The fact that it’s above linear, this is the important idea, that ice loss is increasing with time," she says. And she points out that it isn’t just the Grace data that show accelerating loss; the radar data do, too. "It isn't just one type of measurement. It's a series of independent measurements that are giving the same results, which makes it more robust."

    Hey, aren't you the same extremely ignorant nutjob who just posted this link over on the 'Ocean Acidification' thread and got shot down and made to look like an moronic fool? Why yes it is you, s'kook. Welcome to the tread, retard. You have truly earned that title by failing to even read the link you posted which actually says just the opposite of what you so idiotically claimed. Actually you probably deserve the title of 'super-retard' for being that unbelievably stupid.

    From your link, super-retardo:

    "Volcanoes emit around 0.3 billion tonnes of CO2 per year. This is about 1% of human CO2 emissions which is around 29 billion tonnes per year."

    "Underwater volcanoes emit between 66 to 97 million tonnes of CO2 per year. [Land] volcanoes are estimated to emit 242 million tonnes of CO2 per year. In contrast, humans are currently emiting around 29 billion tonnes of CO2 per year (EIA). Human CO2 emissions are over 100 times greater than volcanic CO2 emissions."





    I'll bet that you'll always having to say that.
