Campaigns ignore serious climate issues
Time is running out for humans to take steps that will avoid the catastrophic effects of climate change, but political candidates are talking about the economy, jobs and everything else under the sun.

Campaigns are expensive. What are they good for?

What about Jack?
We've heard Barack and Mitt.
However, when it comes to climate, we haven't heard Jack.

Ju said .. JACK.. jes?

The idiot Supreme Court made them expensive. What the Supreme Court guaranteed was that the poor got even more voiceless.

And has anyone seen elmo. We all know whats going to happen to big bird.Maybe the Supreme Court will step in and save our feathered friend.Com e on dirtling maybe wityh some useless babble you spew you could get mit confused and forget about big bird.

Yeah, they weren't expensive before the Supreme Court ruled that EVERYONE had a freedom of speech. Riiiight! Do some of you stupidarses even think about what you type as you do it? Campaigns are expensive, but they have been so well before the Supreme Ct ruled.

We have freedom of speech. It's not always pretty, but better ugly than uninformed.

Campaigns and Elections
where you can also vote yes/no for:
1. Do you think that the government should place more limits on the way campaigns are financed?
2. Do you think that the government should place more limits on the way campaigns are financed?

It's ALWAYS not pretty, when science speech is uninformed, has hi skule deegreees, but without science, chemistry, astronomy, physics, algebra or pre-calc, without science & mathematics deegreees & ugliest with no hi skule deegreees at all, no way, no how.

Romney supports coal, doesn't that tell u where he stands?

Yes, Yes, hell yeah!

Tipping point? TIPPING POINT? Its the whole Arctic Ocean.
The Arctic sea ice minimum extent this year was almost 300,000 square miles(twice the area of California) smaller than previous minimum in Sept 2007, which itself was an incredible drop.
A stunning performance(a non-performance) shows Arctic sea ice, after this year's minimum extent(& greatest square kilometer area of clear waters), NOT piling on, in great amounts of sea ice on the Arctic Ocean, surrounding seas & against landforms.
Called a secondary feedback in AGW, solar energy absorption by historically unrecorded amounts of clear Arctic waters is putting on an incredible show in a non-performing role, well worthy of an Academy Award. With a stoic unchanging face, almost all southern Arctic waters refuse to ice. Except for the sea ices north of Greenland & Canadian islands, the Arctic ice pack shows a strong resemblance to a semi-circle, strengthening the assumption that Arctic Ocean waters & seas have very strongly absorbed solar energies the last 3 months, due to the rotating Earth, variably tilted towards the sun.
Arctic sea ice extent is a bit greater than the lowest minimum of any other year recorded, either by satellite or submarine data, at 4,477,031 km2 (October 7, 2012). Only the small size area represented by Kentucky has become sea ice, despite the sun, unseen, from the North Pole for 2+ weeks, temperatures above the 80th parallel averaging minus 14 degC for the last three days, & temperatures on landforms surrounding the Arctic Ocean dropping as low as -12degC.
Much warmth built up in Arctic waters these past months is resisting its conversion back to sea ice, especially southern Arctic waters which have seen much more solar energy absorbed than northern Arctic clear waters.
This same Arctic Ocean warmth is & will continue to keep Arctic sea ice thinner through the coming winter & even spring. As of October 2, Arctic sea ice VOLUME is ~23% lower than any satellite recorded year AND indications of submarine-detected Arctic sea ice yearly VOLUME.
Yes, the Arctic sea ice VOLUME is disappearing, year to year, quicker than the Arctic sea ice minimum extent.
Presently, Arctic sea ice extent is above the next lowest two years' minimum Arctic sea ice extent, at 4,574,688 km2 (October 8, 2012). However, present extent is dated almost a month later, than the date that the 3rd place year established its mark. Temperatures above the 80th parallel have slipped to (-15 degC), a bit less than normal, temperatures on landforms surrounding the Arctic Ocean most often freezing with temperatures as low as -17degC, but southern Arctic sea ice has increased by smaller than the size of Indiana.
Much of that sea ice increase is along the Greenland east coast, altho Arctic ice pack is closer to the Russian islands, Franz Joseph Land & Svalbard, again in the semi-circular pattern mentioned above. Almost all large region southerly Arctic waters, including the Northwest Passage, Northeast passage, & waters north of mentioned islands are nearly ice free. HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF SQUARE KILOMETERS(IF NOT MORE), of waters north of Alaska & Siberia are clear.
Arctic Ocean warmth is & will continue to keep Arctic sea ice thinner through the coming winter & even spring. As of October 2, Arctic sea ice VOLUME is ~23% lower than any satellite recorded year AND from indications of submarine-detected Arctic sea ice yearly VOLUME.
Downwellings in unusual clear Arctic waters, normally sea ice covered in decades past, for three months have & even now still transport extra solar energy to continental shelf & Arctic Ocean & sea depths.
Yeah, despite the feeble denial efforts of 'steenking piddling diddling middling mudling mudslinger dirtling', a slimy steenking filthy vile reprobate rooting(& rotting) racist pukey proud pig, to discount this thread, this thread is alive.
