They are getting blowback in Germany, where people are not only getting sick and tired of paying more for electricity - the same strategy that has been destroying the morale of Ontarians paying higher bills - but because people in rural parts of the country are getting increasingly restless as the government insists on building more of those wind ...

Another stupid denier story. Still trying to deny by claiming victory for their ignorance and misdirection.

How many years of failure to follow predictions will it take for you to accept that there may be something that is not being modeled properly? Will it take 5? How bout 10? How much proof is proof enough?

Free Republic, hoarse voice box of "re-pubic-lick-un change the Earth to make profit", is dying, as it demonstrates the science expertise of the lower class.

re-pubic-lick-uns do not care about, seek to aid, or understand the lower class, but have always exploited the plight of the poor, to make more money for the rich.

Free Republic....... so clearly a public demonstration of the methods to drive the lower class ever lower & get the lower middle class to join them.

Actually, that seems a much more apt description of the Democrat ownership.

Every story on this subject is redundant, then followed by a comment just as redundant. Kinda like your use of punctuation !!!!!

With Arctic sea ice thinning and shrinking rapidly in recent years, the U.S. military and scientific agencies are scrambling to cope with the looming prospect of a seasonally ice-free Arctic Ocean.

At a meeting in Washington last week, top U.S. Arctic officials at the Coast Guard, Navy, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and other agencies acknowledged that the U.S. lags behind other nations in dealing with the rapidly changing Arctic environment. The agencies are facing serious deficiencies in the ability to map the sea floor and develop enforceable environmental policies, as well as construct onshore infrastructure that would be used for search and rescue and oil recovery operations. Currently, not a single Navy surface ship is even capable of navigating the ice-covered waters.

“It’s natural that we have paid less attention than other nations,” said Vice Admiral Peter Neffenger, Coast Guard Deputy Commandant for Operations.“For many years, the U.S., the people of the U.S., viewed itself as a nation with an Arctic state rather than an Arctic nation,” he told reporters. "I think that we've discovered that we're an Arctic nation as activity has increased off of our coast."

“We only look late in relation to those who have already been up there operating,” he said, mentioning that Russia has been much more active in the Arctic because it has a larger Arctic coastline.

Rear Admiral White said that trying to use one NOAA ship to map all of U.S. Arctic waters is “like trying to map the floor of a room with just one ant.” He said reliable charts of the Arctic exist mainly for shallow waters, not for deepwater operations.

He said NOAA's and the Navy’s approach to the Arctic emphasizes leveraging partnerships with other federal agencies and international partners.

“In terms of the Navy, the Arctic and the diminishing ice represents a challenge but not a crisis,” White said.

White said that the U.S. is now acting more aggressively to research the Arctic region and prepare for increased operations, despite the many obstacles, including Pentagon budget cuts.

I've always wondered if the loss of ice-pack is due to the continuous opening of breaks in the ice that let the sunlight penetrate and warm the ocean rather than reflect off into space. Are the ice-breakers eliminating the need for ice-breakers? Hmmm...

How did those denier predictions work out for you?

Arctic sea ice recovery since 2009?

Sea level rise stopped in 2006?

Both wrong.

With the Earth still accumulating heat at the rate of four atomic bombs per second, the "no global warming for 15 years" claim is also going to prove to be wrong.

The question is only when reality will smack down the denier lie, not if.

It's the deniers here who are the old men, hoping to cling to the meaning in their life, and die before reality proves that their life philosophies would doom future generations to misery.

I'll wager kitemanSA and no warming are of earthling's generation.

It would be convenient for them if global warming were to go into the deep oceans for a few decades, but the latest science says that they'll probably live to see their lies exposed.
Meehl (2013) is an update to their previous work, and the authors show that accelerated warming decades are associated with the positive phase of the IPO. This is a result of a weaker wind-driven ocean circulation, when a large decrease in heat transported to the deep ocean allows the surface ocean to warm quickly, and this in turn raises global surface temperatures.

This modelling work, combined with current understanding of the wind-driven ocean circulation, implies that global surface temperaures will rise quickly when the IPO switches from the current negative phase to a positive phase.

Young people, who know they have to live with reality and don't have the option of denying it, tend to see the truth.
73 percent of [young voters] associate climate change deniers with words like “ignorant,”“out-of-touch” or “crazy.”

I highly recommend the film "Chasing Ice," which documents the very visible signs of global warming. There are countless groups and individuals doing a 360 in their lifestyles to become more sustainable. I came across Avalon Gardens & EcoVillage, which is apparently the largest ecovillage in the U.S.- founded by Gabriel of Urantia( http://gccalliance.org/resume/ )

Uhmmm, 180? A 360 would spin all the way around and continue on the same way.
