    Weeeeeeeeeellllllll, maybe not. Seems that NASA has a new video that shows the sea ice breakup was actually do to a storm....whoops. Looks like it wasn't due to warming after all.

    Doesn't it just suck when science prooves you wrong...yet again?



    "A powerful storm wreaked havoc on the Arctic sea ice cover in August 2012. This visualization shows the strength and direction of the winds and their impact on the ice: the red vectors represent the fastest winds, while blue vectors stand for slower winds."

    In a month or so we'll hear all about how the Arctic Ice cap is growing at the fastest rate in history but the Antarctice ice is melting. Global warming. They got it covered coming and going.

    This is why I don't "do" ice.. That and the pillaging of the Arctic historical temp. records by NASA GISS.

    Ocean acidification was eating the ice...what else could explain it?

    So the massive record-setting Arctic Sea Ice melt didn't really mean anything, because there was a storm! One storm melted all the ice! None of it would have happened without the storm, even if the melt was on a record setting pace even before the storm!

    That concludes today's lesson in "idiot denialist logic". Denialists seem to spend their days thinking up endless new ways to prove how 'effin stupid they are.

    How long did this storm last Mamooth? Did you watch the NASA video? Or are you just on "Auto-Reply".. Not an "out of the office" memo... More like an "out of your mind" memo.

    :lol::lol: No dingleberry(or should I call you trollingblunderspideytoobertrakarfraud?), what they're saying is there was NO big melt. I understand that science is a difficult subject for you but what they are stating was there was no big melt the ice broke up because of a storm...it was still there it was just scattered and GISS and the others don't calculate broken up ice, only that which is connected.

    Got it?

    Yeah, I didn't think you would....as I said, science is not your strong point.
