    Well, the data is in and the Eco-wackos were wrong again.

    Sea Ice Level the Same as 1979

    In fact a growing number of climate experts are now saying we're due for an Ice Age.

    These scientist argue that CO2 causing global warming is a post hoc ergo proctor hoc fallacy. They say, based on the examination of ice cores for the last 325,000 years, that in fact, global heating and cooling cause increased or decreased levels of CO2. Further, that those CO2 levels trail the heating and cooling cycle by roughly 800 years.

    Earth on the Brink of new Ice Age

    Bottom line: the Polar bears are safe, but the seals are in trouble. Polar bear populations have never been so high and it looks like with the polar bear habitat now safe, the seals are in for a massacre. :lol:

    Dang, don't you guys ever bother to go to a reputable source? What you state is totally false, the current ice extent is just about the same as in the worst year on record. You can see for yourself the current extent at this site;

    Trends, trends, trends. And it's called "climate change". And it's also prudent to take note and not make it an ideological issue but treat it as a scientific issue (fat chance, I know).

    It is hysterical how the right will deny the science of global warming.

    Even Exxon admits that global warming is man made.

    Yes, it is prudent not to make it a political rather than scientific issue. However, since a considerable economic issue is at stake, the continued use of fossil fuel, that is simply impossible. The alternatives to fossil fuels create an economy that spreads the income from energy from very small sources, say solar on a home rooftop, to the owners of major wind projects and the farmers that own the land the mills are on. This is a far differant economy than that created by the point sources of fossil fuels and nuclear.

    That is why the energy companies have purposely spread lies and misinformation for half a century. And may well have created a situation where we have passed the point of no return.

    Then what's the point in running around screaming " the sky is falling " ?

    Huh?

    What's the point of discussing a problem that might raise world sea levels by 10 feet by the end of the century?

    So we can prepare for it?
