Wait a second, isn't the problem in the youtube video the fact that the sun's energy is being absorbed by the water due to the melted ice? Solar energy panels would slow some of that

And nobody in this country will be able to stop the harvesting of resources. Ever since the ice has started metling, the Soviet Union has been staking claim to the mineral rights.
Sun hitting dark polar water is not all of the problem.

Wind and ocean temperature also do their part to reduce ice.

And you still have a CO2 problem with acidification of the oceans.

Try again. Think conservation and alternative energy. If the solution was simple, we'd already be doing it. And we are doing conservation and alternatives.

Conservation and renewable energy is about poverty and eating your own waste.
Frozen Out: 98% of Stories Ignore That Ice-bound Ship Was On Global Warming Mission

By Mike Ciandella | January 2, 2014 | 12:43

A group of climate change scientists were rescued by helicopter Jan. 2, after being stranded in the ice since Christmas morning. But the majority of the broadcast networks’ reports about the ice-locked climate researchers never mentioned climate change.
The Russian ship, Akademic Shokalskiy, was stranded in the ice while on a climate change research expedition, yet nearly 98 percent of network news reports about the stranded researchers failed to mention their mission at all. Forty out of 41 stories (97.5 percent) on the network morning and evening news shows since Dec. 25 failed to mention climate change had anything to do with the expedition.
In fact, rather than point out the mission was to find evidence of climate change, the networks often referred to the stranded people as “passengers,”“trackers” and even “tourists,” without a word about climate change or global warming.
Chris Turney, the expedition’s leader, is a professor of climate change at the University of South Wales. According to Turney’s personal website, the purpose of the expedition is to “discover and communicate the environmental changes taking place in the south.”....

You "solution" isn't much of one anyway.

In the simplest scenario, you are proposing the construction of massive solar panels, either collecting or reflecting, which would need to be FLOATING, cover an area roughly the size of the United States, and which would be useful less than 6 months out of the year.

Your "solution" is actually rather comical.

Certainly that is one issue that warms up the arctic faster as the ice melts. But consider that 80% of the energy in the polar regions comes from the south in currents and winds. Also note that for half the year there IS not sun. Just a couple of clues.. The increase in solar energy WILL make the arctic warmer but the direct sunlight is a small part of it. The main change will be in the resistance to south to north flows which will decrease (thus importing MORE of the southern heat and lowering the temperature difference. Also, a fresh water layer will likely form on the surface, leading to warmer Arctic ocean temperatures (at the surface) which in turn will increase evaporation, leading to more precipitation, while higher temperatures melt the 'permafrost' releasing methane, etc etc. etc. Your 'solution is brilliantly simple minded. i.e unworkable.

The UN treaty will define who owns what resources based on continental shelf boundaries. The rest will be international waters. Nuff said.

The real problem is too many people. The population of the planet is too big for the people who want a "one world government". They want to hold the total population to 5 million people( all of whom are the elite--- not you and me). So watch out for that New World Order that is all the rage of the progressive left, that is what they are all about. The next war is very near, and it will be a much bigger one then we have ever had before.

If they all were elite, what would they be better than? The elite must have the peasants to feel superior! You are so immature.

Guess the abnormal ice and cold mean there is NO Global Warming.

Global Cooling is more accurate.

Yeah, me too.:) And to AKA BOZO, I never said I agreed to their agenda, just that they are planning this scenario. I'm sure some of the 5 million will be low-life surfs to do their bidding. But, to go from over 7 billion down to 5 million is pretty optimistic even for these Nazi or Stalinist minded elitists. They is why they want to disarm the masses. Just go down and try to buy a good deal of ammo. You can't do it-----the government has grabbed it all up.

We won't vote for politicians that want to sign climate treaties and pass climate legislation.

We want smaller government, not to give up more freedom for bigger government.

Sounds like another conspiracy to me..... LOL Reminds me of the conspiracy of the contrails where "they" are extruding aluminum dust, or whatever, to destroy the masses. I know it is true because "they" all wear gas masks so they won't be affected. LOL
Perhaps "they" want to disarm the masses to prevent the masses from killing themselves. BTW where did you get the 5 million figure?

Unlikely Skeptic: A Liberal Environmentalist Challenges Global Warming Theory
Dr. Denis Rancourt speaks to Marc Morano on his views on the politics and science of global warming. "They look to comfortable lies" says Rancourt with regard to global warming believers.
http://www.youtube.com/watch...
Physicist Dr. Denis Rancourt, a former professor and environmental science researcher at the University of Ottawa, has officially bailed out of the man-made global warming movement.
In a hard-hitting and exclusive new exclusive video just released by Climate Depot, Dr. Rancourt declares that the entire man-made global warming movement is nothing more than a "corrupt social phenomenon." "It is as much psychological and social phenomenon as anything else," Rancourt, who has published peer-reviewed research, explained in a June 8, 2010 essay.
Denis Rancourt was a tenured physics professor at the University of Ottawa, Canada; however, as a direct result of his commitment to activist teaching at his university, on December 10, 2008, he was being placed under administrative suspension and banned from campus, with the Dean of the Faculty of Science recommending that he be fired.
His most cited works are in the area of Mössbauer spectroscopy where he developed a spectral lineshape analysis algorithm. In recent years, he has worked on reactive environmental Fe-oxyhydroxide nanoparticles and on iron cycling (see iron cycle) in soils. In 2008, his laboratory found evidence that the structure of ferrihydrite, which was first published in Science, is incorrect.
In June 2011 University of Ottawa law professor Joanne St. Lewis sued Rancourt for $1 million over several U of O Watch blog posts about her.

So this guy Rancourt is a disillusioned fired teacher, who in combination with a Exxon funded political lobbyist Marc Moron made a stupid video and put it on u-tube. So What!

To avoid confusion Rancourt’s 2010 essay is not peer reviewed or published.
Randourt was kicked out of Ottawa
While employed his research was environmental….but not about global warming.

Do your homework before you post crap.

My grandpa, if he had a particular day he wasn't active, would sit in his easy chair at the end of the day, & move his arm rotationally to wind his self-winding watch.

Libetarians(lazy re-pubic-lick-uns) most certainly don't need any encouragement to get up from their "sleeping dogs" position.
