Arctic Refuses To Melt As Ordered

Real Science

Al Gore demanded that the Arctic melt out this year, but the ice appears to be taking its orders from the Koch Brothers at the present time.

Another sell out to big tobacco, which threatens the future of the Arctic. The ice needs to be targeted by the patent commission, to force it to change its planet threatening ways.

    Here are some legitimate sources for readers for facts about arctic ice melt. If any of the readers don’t believe these sources or think the photos are photoshopped I encourage you to contact them about it.

    In the Arctic, temperature has increased at twice the rate as the rest of the globe, and could increase by another 8°C (14°F) by the end of this century. The warming atmosphere along with new weather pattern extremes is causing Arctic sea ice to melt at an alarming rate—12% per decade—that suggests the Arctic will be ice-free by 2030. The impacts of dwindling ice cover in the Arctic are far-reaching, from species endangerment to enhanced global warming, to the weakening or shut-down of global ocean circulation.

    September 2012 had the lowest sea ice extent on record, 49 percent below the 1979–2000 average for that month. http://www.epa.gov/climatechange/science/indicators/snow-ice/sea-ice.html

    The sea ice area for the Arctic shows near-record minimums since 2002. The maps below show the areas for September (shaded) relative to the median extent (purple line) based on the period 1980-2000. The recent years represent a unique event because they show a year-to-year persistence of minimum ice extents (graph below). Sea ice area is now significantly below the level of the 1980s and earlier.

    Personally, it’s disheartening to see so many otherwise intelligent people attempt to discredit the fact that man is responsible for this event.
