Arctic ice shrinks to record low

Aug 29, 2012 | Posted by: Mr_Bill | Full story: www.morrisdailyherald.com

BARROW, Alaska - Here at the top of the world, the news that Arctic sea ice has reached a new low - the smallest footprint since satellites began measuring it three decades ago - is not much of a surprise.

The Arctic seas off the Alaska coast have been increasingly ice-free in recent years. On Monday, the gray, wind-driven surf churned vigorously along the northern coast, with no sign of ice anywhere under the low, fog-shrouded skies.

However the ice in the Himalaya Mountains in Nepal are getting larger. no mention of that I notice.

People think it has anything to do with the fact that the sun is in the middle of an active solar storm cycle and the magnetic poles are shifting?

No..........has to be man made (sarcasm).

How the hell do these know-it-alls know that this is a new low for Arctic sea ice?Just because this is the low point of the last three decades?And how long has the Earth been here?Four-five billion years?But these "scientists" get headlines because of whats happenned in the last thirty years-as though it means something.

Just keep denying reality.

We have always had crazy weather like the last few years.

Who cares about fossil ice records.

Rising oceans, blame Al Gore.

NW Temperature records? What temperature records?
It was hot for the dinosaurs too.

So based on what we would likely do if we decided to do something and what the rest of the world would likely do what difference would it actually make.

You can't ever find good information about things like this, it is like gun control or abortion. It is all one way or the other.

The global warming alarmist never talk about the practical realities of action on climate change. You know things like will it work. They want us to go through all kinds of costly changes, ok, what effect will they have in the long run. What is we lower our carbon footprints, what about the rest of the world and how much would actually lower them if we tried harder vs how much we likely would vs how much we need to. You combine this with what the rest of the world would likely do not what you want them to do and add in the fact what most of the man made warming we are due to get is already in the pipeline and what would your results be.

I bet one volcano will counteract all the changes we might make anyway. I parked my suv for 3 months and can't tell the difference.

Maybe you missed my point.The writers of this story are claiming a "record" for arctic ice based on thirty years of info.I reject records based on that when the earth has been here for 4-5 billion years.And that is "reality".

That is not the point, the point is given the realities of the world and how people act to what extent can you change the final outcome ?

If you agonize over changes to combat global warming and all you do is delay the outcome what did you do ?

Really.

We have non-scientifically made records going back a thousand years.

We know the arctic has bee a frozen place by (non-scientific) observation going back to the 15h Century.

You are on thin ice.
