For the first time in human history, the North Pole can be circumnavigated?
Open water now stretches all the way round the Arctic, making it possible for the first time in human history to circumnavigate the North Pole, The Independent on Sunday can reveal. New satellite images, taken only two days ago, show that melting ice last week opened up both the fabled North-west and North-east passages, in the most important geographical landmark to date to signal the unexpectedly rapid progress of global warming.
Last night Professor Mark Serreze, a sea ice specialist at the official US National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC), hailed the publication of the images â€“ on an obscure website by scientists at the University of Bremen, Germany â€“ as "a historic event", and said that it provided further evidence that the Arctic icecap may now have entered a "death spiral". Some scientists predict that it could vanish altogether in summer within five years, a process that would, in...

[URL=http://www.answersingenesis.org/articles/aid/v3/n1/global-warming-natural]]]Even if true: How much is Human caused/how much sunspots,etc?[/URL] manmade global warming is only about 0.6Â°F, while the sun contributed another 0.6Â°F. Manâ€™s contribution is slight, and not enough manmade warming has occurred to panic over. There is a good chance that man can do nothing or only very little to change the manmade portion, even if he spent what alarmist suggest to â€śfightâ€ť global warming (although we should always have been and should continue to be good stewards of the resources God has provided us). We have plenty of time for research We can also learn to adapt by making changes, if global warming continues its slow upward trend, such as building dikes for rising sea level. (Some scientists are actually predicting global cooling in the future based on trends on the sun, but this remains to be seen.) Spending hundreds of billions of dollars a year to â€śfightâ€ť global warming just doesnâ€™t make sense, and is more likely to ruin the economies of first-world nations than make any significant impact. Global warming for the North could mean lemon groves in N.Dakota!
That's strange. My local newspaper (SF Examiner)had an article that said that there is more ice today than the last 10 years. And on the local station (KTVU) they had a climate expert say that the pacific ocean along the California basin is colder that normal. So where did these guys come up with more global warming lies.
