Arctic sea ice VOLUME, as of March 1, 2014 is 0.5% to 1% lower than that of the "2010-to-current" time range. Average Arctic sea ice VOLUME for March 1, for the period 1980-89, was ~28,200 cubic kilometers. Present March 1, 2014 sea ice VOLUME is ~20,800 cubic kilometers,~7400 cubic kilometers less than the 1980-89 period for March 1.

Enhanced AGW warm fronts are increasingly pushing into the Arctic, causing North Pole temperatures to soar. For the last 4-5 months, millions of square kilometers around the NP have averaged way over normal temperatures, sometimes as high as 16degC(29degF) over normal. Such powerful energies have pushed cold Arctic air far to the south, over Canada & the U.S . The cold Arctic airs have even been pushed to other regions, Mexico, Central America, southern China, India, Iran, Iraq, & Northern Africa, setting cold temperature records.

little substance in farts, don' ev'n show, but Senators showed with substance:

Sen. Brian Schatz-Hawaii: Only one in one thousand published Science Papers disagree with AGW. Defense Department states, AGW is an accelerant to conflict possibilities. Generals, Admirals state that AGW is a significant security challenge. Insurers state AGW is already happening & causing economic damage. Big business states that AGW is the greatest economic OPPORTUNITY in the 21st century. U.S. economy was stimulated with air & water pollution control legislations. AGW is ripe, world-wide for innovation of ideas to solve AGW. China is declaring war on air, water & land pollution, & AGW is also targeted. Hawaii has targeted renewable portfolio to be 40% by 2040.
//////////
Sen. Martin Heinrich-New Mexico: 1996 & 2006 plant hardiness zone maps show dramatic northward bio-mass motions in almost all regions. In addition plant hardiness zones show rises in ELEVATION. Outdoor fire intensity is at its very highest & rising. Coupled with the translation of plant hardiness zones, large conifers whose large & thick barks protected them from fire, are now dying because fire intensity has increased to the point of killing these most large & sturdy trees, even to the very top of mountains & not recovering. Sixty percent of large conifers are targeted by AGW to disappear on the highest New Mexico mountains by 2060. New Mexico farm districts are very dependent of snow packs, which in recent years are taking large & continued hits, considered as bad as California drought conditions. Elephant Butte Reservoir has dropped 97% since its maximum of 2million acre-feet of capacity. Snow packs are one fifth of its past normals, which now look to be developing new norms & collapses. Conservation of resources & efficiency is the cheapest method of resource management possible. Energy efficiency businesses are one of the largest growing business sectors in the U.S. New Mexico is working to add national electrical grid capacity. No legislator is entitled to their own facts to oppose careful scientific science & developing science thought.
//////////
Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse-Rhode Island: According to Henry Kissinger: Conflicts are spurred by a "Confluence of Resentments". On top of these "confluences of resentments" is the stress of AGW, & against the U.S., which has contributed most to AGW, knew its scientists spoke truthfully about AGW...... & do nothing about AGW.
//////////
Sen. Brian Schatz-Hawaii: Some Hawaiian Electric Grids now are 20% to 30%, renewable portfolio. Trying to develop a smart grid. Hawaiian company trying to develop a new turbine to increase aerodynamic efficiency by 15% to 20%. Only by swapping out the turbine would jump the power development for each turbine.
//////////
Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse-Rhode Island: Solar array installation price at the plug on homes became equal in price to fossil fuel electric supply. So legislation jammed thru by re-pubic-lick-un ALEC & Koch brothers, sought to tax the solar arrays to stop competition with fossil fuels. Both the Sierra Club, PLUS THE TEA PARTY combined to defeat the measure.

Thank you for pointing out AGW. AGW enhanced warm fronts have been pushing into the North Pole region for years, increasing NP energy, outrageously. This winter, AVERAGE temperatures on millions of square kilometers around the NP, HAVE NEVER BEEN DOWN TO NORMAL, & has surged as high as 16degC(29degF) over normal. With all that energy, cold Arctic fronts have been forced south onto Canada & the U.S.

Thank you for pointing out AGW.

Thank you for pointing out that temperature changes are normal. Some places were warmer than usual, while other places were colder than usual. That's typical of the climate.
Thank you for pointing out that changes in the weather are normal.

Copying a tactic neither makes you correct or original. Coupled with your errors, it does make you a sleazy, slimy steenking toxic topix AGW denier.

A half century plus of escalating Arctic temperatures over millions of square kilometers is not weather. It is not spot temperatures, nor is it cyclical temperatures.

You have errors, know you have errors, don't care that you have errors, believe your errors help your sleazy, slimy steenking toxic topix AGW denier cause, & have promoted errors, since your determined desire not to have science, chemistry, astronomy, physics, algebra & pre-calc in a poorly(or non-) earned hi skule DEE-plooomaa.

Maybe is Martin Heinrich had looked at a little history he wouldn't have wasted his time.

Take a look at the graph. Notice anything? During negative phases of the PDO my area has drought, the tropical pacific is cool and less evaporation happens from cool water. Look at the 1947 to 1977 time period on the graph. Then notice when the PDO is positive and the tropical waters are warm, we get precipitation.

Cold produces more drought for my area than heat. It has been this way back to the Anasazi. Tree ring studies in this area show a direct correlation between the PDO and drought.

The night of global warming pontification was all show, no substance.

The reservoir is also fed from the snowpack, which is influence by temperatures.

As is water supply.
Rising Rio Grande Basin temperatures, already increasing faster than at any time in more than 10,000 years, are projected to sap the basin of one-third of its surface water supply by the end of the century, according to a new report by federal scientists.“It is sobering,” said Assistant Secretary of the Interior Anne Castle, who was in Albuquerque on Wednesday morning for the release of the Upper Rio Grande Impact Assessment, done by a team of scientists from the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, the Army Corps of Engineers and Sandia National Laboratories. The study projected average temperature increases of 4 to 6 degrees Fahrenheit by the end of the 21st century, with decreasing snowpack, increased evaporation and shrinking river flows converging on federal, state and local water management institutions.“That has ripple effects throughout the system,” Castle told a group of area water managers and community members Wednesday. The study looked at flows on the Rio Grande from its headwaters in southern Colorado to Elephant Butte and Caballo reservoirs in southern New Mexico.

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse-Rhode Island: In 2010, Citizens United, after a victory before the Supreme Court, helped by the Koch Brothers to flood elections with money, not just re-pubic-lick-uns against democrats, but re-pubic-lick-uns vs. re-pubic-lick-uns who were absolutely dead-set against AGW.
//////////
Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse-Rhode Island: Acidification of oceans is affecting shell making for important shellfish species. An immediate affect has been the decrease of oyster farming on the coast of Washington state.
//////////
Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse-Rhode Island: Fisheries are changing rapidly. Fish that used to be plentiful are rare, while fish never found off the shores of Rhode Island, are being caught..... both incidences show a direct effect of warming ocean waters changing fish populations.
//////////
Sen. Brian Schatz-Hawaii: By the year 2039 half of ski areas on the east coast of the U.S. will not exist. Thirteen percent of ski areas in the Cascade mountains & 60% of the ski areas in the Olympic mountains are already being affected negatively.

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse-Rhode Island: With high CO2 emissions continued, 2/3rds of the past Winter Olympic sites will not be viable. The National Hockey League states that frozen lakes & other waters, which helped boys & young men develop their hockey skills are decreasing & hockey skills needed professionally, are at risk
//////////
Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse-Rhode Island: 14000 Science Papers have been written on AGW. Only 24 papers reject AGW.

Sen. Brian Schatz-Hawaii: Hawaii has lots of wind energy, altho some winds do not coincide with maximum electric grid draw. Technology is advancing to make the renewable energy possibilities integrate into the Electric Grid more efficiently. Our state's efficiency program is ground breaking, well on its way to meet its goal of 25% renewable portfolio by 2020.
