Droughts, melting ice caps and glaciers, rising sea levels and mass extinctions will all be a reality unless the U.S. and the world cut back on carbon emissions dramatically, said James Hansen, director of ...

The down side of that would be the disappearance of the polarized

Are we sure that increasing the atmospheric CO2 is a good idea?

That's a daft question, granpaw, of course it isn't.
When the level gets to around 550 ppm, the build up will stop.

Do show all your work on that issue. Hay maybe you can seek the help from the mothra. Careful the mothra can't impress you with knowledge but sure can dazzle you with BS

Think how much easier trans polar commerce can be, without all that ice. Keep the ice in the winter, but let it melt in summer. That's not too much to ask.

He is looking forward to 1000+ppm, specially the enclosed spaces where CO2 will rise to 3-4000ppm. Since brain function is affected at levels over 1000+ppm,'brian_g stumble butt dumpster diver' is looking forward to communicating with people of his own low IQ level.

The sun has been unseen from the North Pole for 7 weeks, temperatures above the 80th parallel, NOT NOW lower than the last three weeks of dates for 2007 & other recent years, temperatures on landforms surrounding the Arctic Ocean, as low as -31 degC! After the Arctic cold outbreak, which has added three plus feet of snow to the results of Hurricane Sandy, Arctic cold is once more building.

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 extent.
//////////
litesong continues
Presently, Arctic sea ice extent is above 2007 AND 2011, the average minimum Arctic sea ice extent for the 2000's, the 1990's, & now the 1980's, at 8,004,844 km2 (November 4, 2012), the day's gain only the size of tiny Delaware! Present temperatures on landforms surrounding the Arctic Ocean, are way below freezing, numerous areas into minus teen digits. Many northern Canadian islands have a mix of temperatures in the minus teens, with the lowest at -26 AND -31degC. Siberian temperatures have dropped to the low minus teens.

The vast open Arctic waters north of Siberia have been covered by Arctic Ice Pack. The huge sea ice floes that strongly developed in the vast clear waters north of Siberia(due to broad double digit minus Siberian temps spilled from North Pole's 7 weeks of darkness & vortex mixing breaking down stratified solar heated waters?), have done their job AND connected the Ice Pack to the entire Siberian coastline, truly a remarkable development!

However, Franz Joseph Land & Svalbard are still clear of the Ice Pack & so is the northern coast of Alaska!!!!

A detail noted 22 days ago is a raggy taggy developing edge along a part of the semi-circle, possibly NOT coincidental with the HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS (plus?) OF SQUARE KILOMETERS, of waters north of Alaska & Siberia that are VASTLY CLEAR. Might the raggy taggy edge indicate huge turbulence & currents in this largest(ever?) ice free, & resulting southerly-directed heat stratified Arctic waters? I wonder if there might develop more raggy taggy edging, enough to form a swirl pattern?
Three+ weeks ago, noted near the raggy taggy ice pack, developed 3 tiny pixel ice floes(arced?), separated from the Arctic ice pack toward southerly directions. Twenty one days ago, the number of ice floes increased to 8 & indeed they formed an ARC. Pretty sure they represent a large scale vortex in open Arctic water!
Further data, show that the vortex is true!

Downwelling solar heats, in unusual clear Arctic Ocean & seas, normally sea ice covered in decades past, which have strongly transported extra solar energy to continental shelf, sea & Ocean depths for 4 months, is over. The sun is unseen anywhere above the 75th parallel, shrouding the Arctic with darkness for a good portion of the year! Now, only Alaskan, far north European, & far western Russian southern Arctic seas get a skimming from the sun for a few hours a day, which is only single digit degrees off the horizon, at most!

The correct term at hand would be mothra. Can't get any toxic than that. I bet if they drew a sample the PH level would be 9.0+

Do you drink evil Big Gulp 32 ounce carbonated beverages that release "contaminant" carbon dioxide directly into stomach tissues. What kind of horrible acidic deluge is then left to surge down into your intestines, as you discard the huge 32 ounce container in your trash? Better call the IPCC, and sign up for IPCC Reeducation Camp.

Or, have all the commissars of the IPCC Reeducation Camp been sent to jail for "fraud?"

"3/2/2010 Scientists at the heart of the Climategate row were yesterday accused by a leading academic body of undermining science's credibility. The Institute of Physics said 'worrying implications' had been raised after it was revealed the University of East Anglia had manipulated data on global warming."

And frankly, taxpayers in both the UK and US are becoming more than tired of financing all the pretentious and fraudulent global warming alarmists.

"These Climate Gangsters should be in the dock in the Old Bailey, along with all the other pimps and trollopes. Their international financier puppet masters should be in The Tower."
