    Since you have no link to anything showing that was the case, why should I accept that it is the case?

    From Arrnhenius in 1896 to Hansen in 1981, the denialists deny that the predictions not only have happened, but at a far faster rate than predicted.

    At present, you can look in almost any scientific journal dealing with earth sciences or meteorology and see articles delineating the changes that we are currently seeing the cryosphere, and in the climate.

    The reponse of the denialists? Oh, them thar pointy headed librul scientists are in on a worldwide consprirace to make us all communists!

    A sad commentary on the mindset of these people.

    AFP: Arctic sea ice shrinks to lowest level on record: US

    Arctic sea ice has shrunk to its smallest surface area since record-keeping began, taking the world into "uncharted territory" as climate change intensifies, US scientists warned.

    Satellite images show the ice cap has melted to 1.32 million square miles (3.4 million square kilometers) as of September 16, the predicted lowest point for the year.

    That's the smallest Arctic ice cover since record-keeping began in 1979, according to the National Snow and Ice Data Center.


    Now that conservatives can no longer deny that the polar caps are shrinking they have to fall back to Plan B which is man has had nothing to do with it. Since over 90% of Scientists support the concept of manmade global warming they are ready to invoke Plan C which is.....Its too late to do anything about it

    Antarctic Sea Ice Sets Another Record - Forbes

    "Antarctic sea ice set another record this past week, with the most amount of ice ever recorded on day 256 of the calendar year (September 12 of this leap year). Please, nobody tell the mainstream media or they might have to retract some stories and admit they are misrepresenting scientific data."

    I guess Antarctica is not up on current AGW Bullshit Theory

    Why is Antarctica a Denier?

    When you say "polar ice", bear in mind that Earth has 2 poles.

    Yes, I know that's news to you.

    Check the ice accumulation at the other pole

    1) Arctic Sea Ice melting is NOT gonna raise the oceans much..

    2) There is a catch to claim that you posted..

    See -- we've only had satellites measuring this stuff for about 30 years. WAAAAY to short a time to panic about climate change. And there's ample evidence that the melts in the mid-30s came very close or EXCEEDED what we're seeing today..

    But GO right ahead and use this fact to BEAT UP folks who don't believe CO2 is the primary cause --- it amuses the hell out of me...
    :D
