Lake Superior very rarely freezes over completely, and then usually just for a few hours.

Complete freezing occurred in 1962, 1979, 2003 and 2009.

It's getting COLDER!!

Wintertime ice cover on the Great Lakes was the lowest observed since such records began in 1980.

Its pretty safe to say that what were seeing here is the warmest that weve seen in Lake Superior in a century, said Jay Austin, a professor at the University of Minnesota at Duluth, who has researched the lakes water temperatures back to the beginning of the 20th century.

The lake's record temperatures are yet another consequence of the record heat so far in 2012. The contiguous U.S. had its warmest January-to-June period since records began in the late 19th century. Manmade global warming will likely result in more years with very warm water temperatures, which could have significant adverse consequences for marine life. In a rare benefit from the ongoing drought, this summer has been so dry that the warm water temperatures are not resulting in major harmful algal blooms, such as one that occurred on Lake Erie last year.

Instrument data from three buoys in Lake Superior provide a reliable record of water temperatures since about 1980, and the information also shows that, with water temperatures running in the mid-to-upper 60s (and even warmer closer to shore),we are at record temperatures for this time of year, according to Austin.

Austin said that water temperatures at the westernmost edge of Lake Superior are running in the mid-70s, and it was due in part to the runoff from flooding rains that struck Duluth, Minn., in late June.

Because of sand and other particles within in the runoff, sunlight is not penetrating far below the surface, and that helps heat near-surface waters more significantly than if clearer waters were present, Austin said.

Data shows a long-term warming trend throughout the Great Lakes, which may be related to manmade climate change.

1) I don't say that.
2) I'm not a liberal.
3) The scientist said nothing of the sort.
4) You failed to address the fact that you adamantly believe in an outrageously improbable conspiracy (that's backed by scientific observation) and refuse to acknowledge the open backing of science denial by paid serial liars funded by oil and coal companies.
5) You're a bigger loser than ever for lying twice, assuming incorrectly, and dodging your dodgy beliefs.

But nevertheless he is your green champion, because he is Liberal and that is more important than the environment!!!
Global Warming, another ready made excuse for bigger government and higher taxes via "Carbon Credits" which made hypocrite Liberal hero Al Gore filthy RICH. But he is a "good" rich not a greedy job creating corporate fat cat!!!
See? Liberals are brain dead hypocrites easy to fool by the Liberal Media.
Liberals are the only ones who get anything done. the Republicans are against progress. They only want their rich buddies to profit.

I suppose I am a liberal conservative. Not a radical do nothing RW extremist.

Actually, the O2 levels were quite high. After all, very few animals to breath it and the oceans O2 levels were high as well. Given the millions of years of evaporation, waves, and others factors this is not surprising.

Breathing would of not been a problem. The oceans were working like the aeroator on a fish tank in reverse.

Whatsamatta, martinezjosei? I think it reasonable to assume that you can't respond intelligently .... except by admitting that you were utterly wrong and utterly non-responsive to criticism. I think we can also safely assume that you are incapable of doing even that because you're a dogmatic ideologue who is just as immune to criticism as you are to evidence and rational arguments.

It's a slam dunk that you'll be back eventually to continue repeating the same brain-dead denialist crap. Thanks for that; for the vast majority who cannot or will not access the science, your obvious resistance to reason is the best argument rationalists have.
